The Ogun State Government of Nigeria, yet again, has extended the Coronavirus lockdown across the state.

Prince Dapo Abiodun, Governor Ogun State, Friday, May 15 night stretched the COVID-19 lockdown in the state for the third consecutive week till May 24, 2020.

ConsumerConnect gathered that the governor cited noticeable non-compliance with the safety regulations by most of the residents, and the consequential community spread of the fatal virus as reasons for extending the sit-at-home order.

Governor Abiodun said: “In view of the evidence of community transmission and poor compliance with the lockdown measures, we are constrained to extend the lockdown by another week till Sunday 24th of May.”

“The current pattern of lockdown with relaxation windows from 7.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday continues.

According to him, “we will continue to monitor the level of compliance with the lockdown measures and incidence of community transmission.

“And hopefully, there will be positive developments that will enable us further ease the lockdown at the end of this new lockdown period.”
