Days after easing the lockdown in the state, Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state on Sunday relaxed the existing curfew imposed on the state from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Gov Makinde stated that several creative measures were approved for implementation by the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC), which coordinates the operations of the thematic segments of the containment drive.
One of such is the approval of a facility in Ibadan for use as an observation and isolation centre for a category of patients after thorough reviews.
“The Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force headed by His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde has approved that the curfew currently in force in the state runs from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. The new directive replaces the initial order which pegged the curfew at between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m.
“Agreement has been struck with the management of a facility in Ibadan to provide bed spaces for a number of positive cases, whose status has been well considered by the experts”.
He advised farmers in the state to take advantage of the decision to stop the curfew at 5 a.m. to enhance their farming activities.
He further revealed that the state government is also wrapping up further renovation and face-lifting activities at its isolation centres located at Agbami, Jericho, Ibadan, Igbo-Ora, Ogbomoso, Saki and Aawe, near Oyo town.
