You Can’t Go To Work, Gov Abiodun Tells Lagos Workers Living In Ogun

Residents of Ogun State working in Lagos would not be permitted to move out or into to the state when the ease of lockdown takes effect from Monday, the 4th of May, the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has said.

The governor disclosed this in the latest guidelines by the state government over the Federal Government-ordered partial lockdown in the state.

Announcing via Facebook on Saturday afternoon, the governor said the lockdown in the state ends on Sunday, May 10, as a result of the initial grace the state was granted.

He, however, stressed that the use of face masks would become mandatory for everyone in public places effective May 4.

The governor also referred to the order of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), restricting inter-state movement as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

A sizeable number of the working population in Lagos live in Ogun but Abiodun said this category of people would not be permitted to move in or out of the state as the lockdown eases.

He said:

“All schools remain closed, while students will continue with their DigiClass.

“All essential service personnel will continue to work despite the lockdown.

“All public religious gatherings remain banned. All pubs, clubs, stadia, public pools, spas, gyms, salons, etc. and all assemblies of more than 15 people remain banned. Restaurants may open on the approved days for take-out meals only.
