Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state has disclosed the reasons why Nigerian governors decided to stop people from other states from entering their states.
According to the governor, this will help in curbing interstate spread of the novel coronavirus.
The governor also said the boundaries closures will enhance the ability for governments to effectively handle contact tracing.
The governor disclosed this in a post on his Instagram page.
“Yesterday, all governors in Nigeria held a virtual meeting where we all shared measures adopted in our individual states to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
“We jointly decided to close our interstate borders across the country for two initial weeks in a bid to curb the interstate spread of the virus and enhance our ability to better handle contact tracing.
“This, however, tallies with the earlier decision and stance of the Ogun state government to keep all our interstate and international borders shut, except to essential services,” the governor wrote.
