COVID-19: Oyo Government Bans Street Carnivals, Urges CAN to Adhere to Curfew

In its efforts to prevent the second wave of Corona virus in Oyo state, the government of Oyo state through Oyo state covid task force led by Prof. Temitope Alonge announced a proscription on street carnivals during the yuletide periods.

Prof. Temitope Alonge urged the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Oyo state chapter to adhere to the 12:00am to 4:00am curfew directives imposed by the Federal Government.

Prof. Alonge made the announcement during a press briefing on Tuesday to update the citizens of the latest news regarding the global pandemic which has been a part of the world since the tail end of 2019.

He said, “I know that Christian Association of Nigeria in Lagos State after the release from the Lagos State government, had a meeting and directed that churches should in compliance with the national directive complete their services early enough to go home.

“We are asking CAN in Oyo State to do the same, admonish and advice as many of their members to comply with the national directive.

“It is not an Oyo State directive and we believe that was in general good of everybody.”

Prof Alonge who identified Ibadan North and Oorelope Local Government Areas as hot spots for the pandemic in Oyo State, called on the private health care providers and un-well individuals in the state to continue to make use of the testing centers available in all local government areas in the state.
