Ogun State Government, on Wednesday, directed full reopening of religious centres, businesses, hotels and other entertainment centres in the state.
The state Governor, Dapo Abiodun, had closed religious centres, businesses and schools in March as part of moves to flatten the curve of the coronavirus.
He later announced the reopening of only worship centres and schools in August, subject to the guidelines of the safety measures.
Abiodun had pegged the number of worshippers for a service at 200, and insisted that services must not exceed one and a half hour.
While lifting the order, the governor in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, on Wednesday, said the religious centres and other public places have been reopened following the success recorded in flattering the curve of COVID-19.
According to him, the government is aware that many people are just recovering from the economic hardship imposed by COVID-19, as their activities had been affected by the lockdown, while necessary measures had been put in place to combat the pandemic.
