While Governor Of Ogun State Extends Lockdown, Mowe Residents Unlock Themselves!

While Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state has announced the extension of the lockdown by one more week, upon the expiration of the seven days earlier declared, as disclosed on the state government’s official twitter handle, the residents of Mowe in the Mokoloki LGA have suddenly unlocked themselves!

This is evident in their activities on the relaxation days which is expected to end at 5pm on those particular days. Full masking of faces is expected to be the top priority of everyone but the reverse is the case in the evenings when the market area is expected to witness a ‘dead silence’.

One begins to wonder why the government starts with strong enforcement of laws but later relax their policies with time.
Where are the monitors who are expected to be watchdogs in the suburb?  Guess they have gone to rest as the market evenings witness larger crowds than the day time, almost all people in the Otunba Gbenga Daniel market on the eve of the recent extension, were seen unmasked, without maintaining any social distance.

 The governor explained that his decision was in line with the president’s directives ordering the gradual relaxation of the lockdown in the FCT, Lagos and Ogun states with safety measures like the use of face masks and social distancing remaining the order of the day. This doesn’t seem to be taken any seriously in Mowe as it was on the onset.

With this sudden switch, it is frightening to say that the monster Covid-19 could hit the town unannounced. At the moment, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the country has so far recorded a total of 5,162 COVID-19 cases across 34 states and the FCT.

It’s doubtful if the residents are still cautious of their safety and the essence of the lockdown!
