The Oyo state government has permitted cross-over service in the state.
According to a statement by Governor Seyi Makinde’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Taiwo Adisa, he stated that the 12 am to 4 am curfew earlier imposed on states by the Federal Government has been lifted.
Recall that the state taskforce on COVID-19 had earlier called on Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Oyo State chapter to adhere strictly to the 12am to 4am curfew imposed by the federal government.
The statement read, “Following a review of the pronouncement of the Technical Team of the Task Force on COVID-19 in Oyo State on 29th December 2020, His Excellency, the Executive Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, FNSE, has magnanimously directed that the 12 midnight to 4 a.m. curfew be lifted.
“The governor has also warned citizens and residents of Oyo State to ensure strict compliance with the guidelines, protocols and advisories as laid down by the OYO State COVID-19 Task Force aimed at limiting the transmission of the disease in our communities.
“Secondly, he has directed that enforcement of these guidelines and protocols in accordance with the law will be applied as appropriate, enjoining individuals and organizations to comply and by so doing ensure that we all spread the joy of this season and not the virus.”
