After several months of restriction on religious centres in Ogun State, the state government has lifted ban on worship centres, effective from today, Friday 13th August, 2020.
Governor Dapo Abiodun made this known through a press release issued in Abeokuta.

Religious leaders are urged to comply with the directive and work with the state government in smoothing the curve of COVID-19 in the state.
