Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has said that schools in the state remain closed due to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases.

According to the governor, the ban on religious and social gatherings in the state may not be lifted soon, adding that the state should not be in a hurry to fully reopen.

He said, “We have held off from reversing our directive on religious gatherings. We saw what happened when a private organisation did not follow the advisories we provided to the letter.

“Over 50 percent of the COVID-19 cases in Oyo State can be traced to this organisation. So, I take this opportunity to, again, plead with our religious leaders to be patient with us. We are keeping eye on the numbers and will adjust this directive at the right time. Schools won’t be reopened yet.”
