ABEOKUTA - The Ogun State House of Assembly has expressed concerns over the non-compliance by some residents of the State with the provisions of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Health Protection Regulations 2021 recently signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Consequently, the Assembly has directed the State Ministries of Health and Environment to redouble its efforts towards ensuring that the people of the State comply with safety protocol on covid-19 in line with the State Executive Order on precautionary measures, especially at public places/gathering including markets.

The Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Kunle Oluomo gave the directive while responding to the submissions of a member representing  Egbado North II State Constituency, Hon. Wahab Haruna who spoke under Personal Explanation during a plenary session held at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

The Speaker admonished residents to observe the stipulated guidelines towards containing the spread of the deadly disease through observance of social distance and usage of nose masks amongst others.

In another development, Speaker Oluomo has charged the Committee on Education, Science and Technology to liaise with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology on modalities towards ensuring the effective utilization of the Model Schools constructed across the 20 Local Government Areas in the State. 

He gave the directive while responding to the presentation of the member representing Ijebu-East State Constituency, Olusola Adams, who reported the invasion of the model school situated in his constituency by burglars, who went away with valuable school materials, just as hoodlums had turned the facility to a hideout to perpetrate crimes.
