Covid- 19: Makinde Visits State Borders To Assess Interstate restriction compliance
Governor Makinde of Oyo state on Thursday went round the state borders to check the effectiveness of the state entry restriction.
Makinde who after the inspection of Lagos-Ibadan and Ibadan-Ife entry point into Oyo state commended the security agencies for their dedication also promised that, the state will work on the major challenges observed during the inspections.
According to Makinde, he said “Today, we visited some border towns in Oyo State to assess compliance with restricted entry into the state. The issues with compliance are more prominent on the major express roads; Lagos-Ibadan and Ibadan-Ife. Compliance at the smaller entry points into the state is better.
We will continue to work with the security agencies to address the gaps we observed. We will also improve on the working conditions for the security agents manning the posts to enable them carry out their duties more effectively.
We also believe that the implementation of lockdowns in interstate motor parks, as agreed by state governors, will result in less interstate travel’.
