Covid-19: Oyo Commissioner Seeks People’s Attitudinal Change
Oyo State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr Wasiu Olatubosun has called on the people of the state to see attitude change as the only solution to the war against Covid-19.
Dr Olatubosun said this through the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr Bunmi Babalola at a One-Day training for reporters on Covid-19 reportage in Ibadan.
The commissioner said all efforts to sensitize the general public by the state government had been explored, while testing has been taken to the local level to ascertain the level of spread of the disease in the state.
He hinted that the global and local economy as well as human survival would only be achieved if people keep to what he called the new normal through social distancing, use of nose covers and regular hand washing.
He said it was important for media professionals to adjust from the way and manner they carry out their responsibilities in line with the current situation and follow necessary protocols that will protect us in our day to day activities.
Dr Olatubosun appealed to the people of the state to keep faith with the present administration on efforts at stopping the spread of the disease and work towards restoring normalcy to the economic, social and daily activities of the people.
