Osun State is the State with the third highest Coronavirus Cases in Nigeria after Lagos and FCT, they has Confirmed 20 Cases.
Furthermore, in other to prevent the spread of Covid 19, Governor of Osun State Adegboyega Oyetola announced another 14 days lockdown.
My dear good People of the State of Osun, in order to ensure a total defeat of Coronavirus in our State, we’ve decided to extend the ongoing lockdown by another 14 days which will commence midnight of Thursday, April 16, 2020.
However, to allow our people to re-stock, the lockdown is suspended between Wed. 15th & Thurs. 16th April. All markets & land boundaries remain closed during the suspension of the lockdown & the lockdown period. Also, the ban on all public gatherings remains in force.
No doubt, we’ve all sacrificed to get us where we are. However, the circumstances of our situation do not support the suspension of the lockdown at this period. The application & implications of half measures are dangerous & grave at this critical period.
