The special assistant to Ogun State governor on inter- ethnics, Prince Hadi Sanni has said the extension of lockdown by one week by Abiodun was a welcomed development in the state.
He said that the extension is necessary because it will mitigate the increasing figure of covid19 in the state.
Hadi made this known during a telephone interview with our correspondent on Saturday night.
He said, ''the extension is necessary to mitigate the increasing figure of covid 19 in the state most especially to the fact that we are gateway state to Lagos which happen to be the epic center of the pandemic in the federation. This indeed has made us so prone and vulnerable to the virus.
''The decision is for our own good as health is wealth.
''Our passionate governor , Prince Dapo Abiodun has been able to create a relaxation window within the lock down period to ease the tension and improve the economic effect on our people''
He therefore called on the residents of the state to remain calm and be patient with the governor Abiodun.
