The governor of Ekiti state, Dr. Fayemi Kayode has relaxed lockdown in his state and has ordered the civil servants to resume work on Monday, 1st June 2020.
The governor disclosed this in a statewide broadcast Sunday evening, as he told the citizens to pursue their businesses from Monday through Friday from 6am to 8pm.
He also revealed that consultations were underway to reopen worship centres, schools and big markets in the state.
While speaking to the civil servants, he reiterated that effect from Monday, public officers on Grade Level 8 and above are to resume for duty while those on Grade Level 7 and below are to remain at home till further notice.
The Governor also stressed that the dusk-to-dawn curfew will resume daily at 8pm and will last till 5.59 am of the following morning.
However, Fayemi urged residents to give maximum support to the medical experts conducting the tests as the government has mapped out modalities for a free and successful exercise.
“I therefore urge you to willingly submit yourselves for testing when the officials get to your neighborhood.
“This also provides an opportunity for those who might have had symptoms associated with COVID-19 to freely come out for testing at no cost to them.” His words
He also promised to reopen worship centres “very soon” because he has set up a committee that will be engaging with religious organisations to fashion out a workable protocol.
The workable protocol, he said, will enable religious houses to reopen very soon without jeopardising the lives and health of worshippers.
In terms of re-opening schools, the governor said schools will soon reopened based on the recommendations from the committee.
