EKITI GOVERNMENT THREATENS A RETURN TO LOCK-DOWN OVER NON-ADHERENCE TO COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

The Ekiti State government has threatened to return total lockdown in the state following non-adherence to the preventive guidelines stipulated to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The state’s Commissioner for Information, Aare Muyiwa Olumilua, said this while giving update on the COVID-19 situation on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti .

Olumilua said the governor Dr. Kayode Fayemi, was also disturbed by the porosity of Ekiti borders, which he said, accounted for the upsurge in the number of COVID-19 active cases in the state.

He however advised people to ensure strict adherence to the guidelines put in place by the governor to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

However, the commissioner added that a committee, comprising government’s delegates, Parent-Teacher Association and proprietors of schools, has been put together by Governor Fayemi to interact and come up with recommendations that can facilitate easy reopening of schools.
