Face masks now mandatory in Ogun – Dapo Abiodun

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State says the government will be enforcing the compulsory use of face masks by residents of the state, as efforts are intensified to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease. The enforcement of the face mask will take effect from tomorrow morning when Gov Abiodun is expected to announce a relaxation of the lockdown, our correspondent gathered.

The governor, who addressed residents of the state last Friday night, insisted that “a face mask has the benefits of preventing an afflicted person from infecting others and vice versa.” Saying that the quality of what the face mask was made of did not matter, the governor stressed what was important was that residents must “tie something on your face to keep you protected.”

Meanwhile, the lockdown has been taking its toll on the state as roads and inner streets in the otherwise bustling city of Abeokuta, the state capital, were deserted on Saturday and yesterday following commencement of the total lockdown, effective from Friday night.
