Endure the lockdown, Osun monarchs plead
In a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the state, the Osun State Divisional Conference of Obas has urged residents to endure the discomfort of the lockdown directives from the government.
The monarchs disclosed that the directives are for a short time and would soon become a thing of the past.
The statement read, “It is painful that the scourge which is ravaging all countries of the world found its way into Nigeria and of recent to our state. The spread is no doubt a matter of concern to Obas who are the closest to our people.
“We salute the proactive steps taken by our Governor so far since the virus sneaked into Nigeria. We are satisfied with the steps so far taken by our governor as we urge him not to relent in his efforts,” the statement reads in part.
The traditional rulers also urged residents of Osun to continue to support the government by adhering strictly to the government’s directives and guidelines set out to prevent the spread of the virus.
