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.
