Oyo State Government has revealed that it may likely impose travel restrictions at the State’s entry points, as part of measures for containing the Coronavirus pandemic in the State.

The Executive Chairman, Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority (OYRTMA), Dr. Akin Fagbemi said this on Wednesday during an interview at COVID-19 situation Room on a popular radio station in Ibadan.

The Executive Chairman said, the State Government would only allow essential travels into the State, which would be subjected to thorough health checks.

He said “All entry points into Oyo State (land and airways) may soon be closed. Entry and transit by any vehicle would be subjected to robust health check of all passengers”.

Dr. Fagbemi revealed that OYRTMA has prepared for the challenging times, the State is in, and has put efforts in place to closely monitor the State’s borders.

Noting that the transportation sector could be a major carrier of COVID-19, if not properly managed, Dr. Fagbemi called on transport companies, transport unions and terminal operators to keep a travel manifest for inbound and outbound passengers, especially verified phone numbers.

Urging them to provide hand-wash stands and sanitizers in their garages, he called on passengers to cooperate with them by washing their hands with soap and water and sanitize them before boarding, adding that recalcitrant passengers should be denied boarding if they fail to comply with the hygiene procedures.

this is a trying time for we as a country. please let's endeavour to try as much as possible to remain indoors to curb the spread.
Now we are home. we should endeavor to learn a skill. I'm discounting for all nairalanders. Let's engage and be creative!

This is better than Wike's proposed total shut down..
Other countries with light, food and welfare are shutting down. We sef, inside this heat, no light food or money will follow shut down too?
When they had the time to stop all foreign flights they didn't, now they want shut down. Nonsense

I wonder what SE governors are waiting for? Is it until the region is infected before they act? Ugwuanyi, Umahi, Uzodinma and Igbazu had better borrow a leaf from Obiano. This is not the time for Extreme servitude.

Nigerian states have no right to ban other Nigerians from entering their state.

Nigeria constitution should be respected at all times otherwise Nigeria is joke with no regard to its constitution.

Each state should establish a testing center in all local government and provide necessary health facilities for treatment and isolation.

Closing borders against other state shows disunity. Even in Germany here, Covid-19 patients are flown into Germany from Spain and Italy for treatment. Interstate travel is exclusive right of all citizens except if federal government issues a whole country lockdown.
