Oyo has a duty to not let this go out of hand.
the third highest epicenter of the pandemic in Nigeria and, with a fresh wave of infection being reported, I think we should face this with all the seriousness it deserves.
Oyo State needs to review its strategy in its battle against Covid-19. The rate of spread of the deadly virus in the state is completely unacceptable.
Covid-19 in Oyo!
Weeks ago, some of us said that Oyo can overtake Lagos on the Covid-19 scale, so many of you were arguing with us that it is impossible.
When it got to the attention of His Excellency, the governor of Oyo state, he was livid that some people were underrating Oyo, the pacesetter state! Imagine! To prove these people wrong, in less than two weeks, Oyo became the fourth highest Covid-19 epicenter in Nigeria.
Now Lagos is jittery, justifiably so and, has started sending emissaries to us in Oyo not to displace them from the top of the table. Being omo’luabis that we are in Oyo, we have met our governor, to pity Lagos, because we don’t want to put Lagosians to shame just like that. We have now gotten the assurance of His Excellency that he will let Lagos remain the leader of the herd.
So expect my governor to put machinery in motion to crash Oyo’s Covid-19 cases from now on. His Excellency has also decided not to open schools as earlier planned. School opening was the joker he was relying on before to send Lagos crashing! Thank you Mr. Governor for being responsive and, for having the best interest of the people of Oyo state at heart, especially with your ‘exemplary response’ on this Covid-19 issue, before some ignorant people got you angry resulting in the current number that is about to crash.
