Osun State governor, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola has announced the rules and regulations guiding the partial lift of Covid ’19 lockdown which began all over the country some one and a half month back. Following the national broadcast made by President Muhammadu Buhari earlier this week, all state governors are directed to relay the message of Buhari to their residents. The rules guiding all states apart from Kano are similar. It could be recalled that Kano State is presently recording massive death rates mysteriously, which prompted the federal government to announce a total lockdown in the state. Below is a summary of what Governor Oyetola rolled out to Osun state people which was in tandem with the other 34 states of the federation.
