…Directs Security Operatives to Enforce Compliance
By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo
Osun State Government has reiterated its ban on the cross over services in the state as part of efforts at curbing the spread of Coronavirus.
Specifically, the Government said that there will be no countdown to New Year ceremonies and cross overnights under whatever guise by religious bodies during New Year eve.
Consequent upon this, the state government has directed the security operatives in the State to enforce the directives without exception.
The Secretary to State Government, (SSG), Prince Wole Oyebamiji, made this known in a statement issued on behalf of the Osun Government.
The statement reads further: ” The ban on youth carnivals still subsists. Also, all social clubs, hotels, departmental stores, supermarkets, event centers and allied centres are to henceforth operate at half of their capacities and observe Covid-19 protocols.
“Wearing of face Masks at public places is equally compulsory.
“We want to appeal to all residents and citizens to cut down on social gatherings, including weddings, naming ceremonies and funeral ceremonies so as to reduce the spate of exposure and contact with possible carriers visiting the State during the Yuletide period.
“Also all towns and cities are to put on hold the annual days through physical attendance and change such to the virtual version.
“We assure all citizens and residents that the Government is insisting on all these measures in their collective interest. Therefore, let’s all join hands with the Government to keep Osun safe.”
