He also announced a new set of guidelines that would guide the second phase of the gradual reopening of the state’s economy.

The governor, however, said all major markets in the state would remain shut.

He also disclosed that the ban on political, public, religious, and any kind of gatherings remain in force.

Oyetola said: “As you are all aware, the Federal Government a few days ago lifted the ban on religious activities in the country. We have, therefore, lifted ours too after our meeting with religious leaders on Wednesday with specific guidelines.

“In furtherance to that, we have also further relaxed our curfew, as part of measures for the gradual reopening of our economy. Civil servants on level 7 and above should go to work within normal office hours, while each department should work out and alternate working hours for workers on grade levels 1 to 6.”
