Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State on Thursday ordered reopening of praying grounds for Muslims in the state.
He said that Muslim praying grounds across the state will be opened for the 2020 Eid-el-Kabir prayers.
He, however, warned that the Muslim faithful must ensure strict compliance with COVID-19 protocols in the state.
Makinde in a statement made available to DAILY POST by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Adisa,
said that it has become imperative for the sake of public health and wellbeing of all worshipers
that they conduct the Eid prayers in strict compliance with the guidelines on prevention of COVID-19.
He urged the leadership of each praying ground in the state to ensure the availability of hand-washing points and the compulsory use of nose masks.
