The Ogun state government is set to commence the “Operation no mask, no movement” to curb the spread of corona virus pandemic.
The state Governor, Dapo Abiodun stated this on his verified twitter handled on Tuesday night.
“Our Government remains steady in our commitment to the protection and welfare of lives and property, so we understand the difficult choice to be made between protecting the (health of the) people and ensuring their welfare.”
“In this line, the State will still observe the 7-hour breathers earlier declared, so the movement of persons and vehicles will be allowed between 7am (morning) and 2pm (afternoon) tomorrow, Wednesday the 15th, and Friday the 17th.”
“This is time allowed for our people to ventilate, and get more food and medical supplies, and conduct businesses especially for daily earners.”
“We will soon begin the strict enforcement of the wearing of face masks by the people when they are in the public, as it would further curb the spread of the COVID-19.”
He said in the aspect of relief package, the state government is adopting more effective distribution strategies which are the result of observations made from the first phase of the distribution.
The Governor said the first phase has seen relief items distributed to over 60,000 households of the poor, vulnerable and elderly, translating to about 300,000 individuals across the State.
“The next phase targets an additional 80,000, translating to about 400,000 individuals across all wards in the State.”
“I appreciate the good people of Ogun State, all first responders (including the health workforce and security agencies in the State), the private sector, and the State COVID-19 Task Force for their cooperation and support all the way.”
