Decontamination of Oyo State Secretariat Begins
Oyo state government has commenced fumigation of its Secretariat located at Agodi in Ibadan.
Governor Seyi Makinde at the commencement of the fumigation of the state Secretariat said the decontamination was part of the efforts of the state government to curb the spread of Covid-19 in Oyo state.
Represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mrs Olubamiwo Adeosun, Governor Makinde urged other corporate bodies to be responsive by also embarking on a decontamination exercise around their properties, urging them to follow specifications to avoid health consequences as a result of the chemical.
The chairman of the covid-19 decontamination and containment project, Professor Olanike Adeyemo said only places with possible cases of covid-19 needed to be decontaminated while other public places would receive mild fumigation.
Commissioner for Health, Dr Bashir Bello emphasized that the fumigation exercise was done to make the environment safe.
Members of the team for the containment exercise were volunteers from the University of Ibadan who were supporting the state government as part of their corporate social responsibilities.
The three -day fumigation exercise ends this Wednesday while the Secretariat is expected to be opened next week Monday.
