The Ogun State Government on Wednesday banned all high-density gatherings that would bring together 50 or more people in the same place.

A statement issued by Kunle Somorin, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Ogun State, said further to measures so far taken to ramp up its efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the Ogun State Government has found it expedient to announce an immediate ban of all high-density gatherings that would bring together 50 or more persons in the same place, such as social clubs, halls, cinemas, night clubs, restaurants, cafes, and sport arenas.

“This measure will be in effect for the next 30 days in the first instance,” the statement said.

The government said this restriction had to be enforced without prejudice to people’s fundamental rights to association and movement, because safety of “our people and their welfare are priorities that cannot be toyed with. The Government will continue to engage all the stakeholders, including our religious leaders to sensitise the populace on the need to maintain social distancing and collective effort to combat this pandemic.

“The Government will continue the surveillance initiatives and intensify sensitisation on COVID-19. This is more so given the peculiarity of its location as the Nation’s Gateway State and its industrial capital. Our epidemiologists and other health workers are working round the clock with Federal agencies and international development agencies to stop the spread of corona virus,” it stated.

The statement said Governor Dapo Abiodun reassured the populace that nothing would be left to chance in ensuring that the state was prepared at all times to respond appropriately.
