THOSE eagerly anticipating the reopening of schools and lifting bans on religious and social gathering in will have to wait a little longer, as Governor Seyi Makinde said on Wednesday that he is not in any rush to lift the ban without the advice of experts.

He said such a decision would be focused on the review of the positive risk situation being carried out by experts at the moment.

This will come as the governor said ‘Operation Amotekun’ will begin operations within the next one month following the screening and confirmation by the state assembly of Brigadier-General Ajibola Togun (retd) and Colonel Bisiriyu Olayanju (retd) as chairman and commander of the corps.

Makinde gave the hint while delivering his “State of the State Address” at a special plenary in commemoration of the Ninth State House of Assembly’s first year anniversary.

The session was presided over by house Speaker Adebo Ogundoyin, who was also attended by top government functionary.

Makinde listed his efforts in the battle against the novel coronavirus on his achievements over the last one year especially in line with his four pillars “Roadmap for Accelerated Development in Oyo State, 2019-2023.”
