The Ogun State Government on Wednesday directed full reopening of religious centres, businesses, hotels and other entertainment centres in the state.
The state governor, Dapo Abiodun, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Wednesday recalled that religious centres and other public places had been reopened following the success recorded in flattening the curve of COVID-19.
He said in the process of rebuilding the economy, the state government was committed to the successful implementation of the ‘Building our Future Together’ agenda, and would do everything possible for people to have increased prosperity that would place the state on a sound footing towards continued development.
Also, Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has directed workers on Grade Levels 02 to 07 in the state public service, who had been at home since the outbreak of the COVID-19, to resume work with effect from November 2.
The Head of Service, Peju Babafemi, said the directive followed the state government’s review of the steps taken in containing COVID-19, including the provision of equipment and materials to prevent the spread in offices.
Babafemi, in a statement in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday, urged all the workers to “show more dedication to duty in ensuring effective service delivery to Ekiti people as they resume.”
