The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has threatened to bar unvaccinated residents from government offices, schools, markets and public transport.

The governor also gave a 60-day ultimatum to unvaccinated residents to obtain COVID-19 vaccines.

Abiodun said this on Monday, during the inauguration of COVID-19 mass vaccination campaign in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

The governor explained that the 60-day window would allow unvaccinated residents to take their jabs, as part of moves to flatten the curve of the virus.

He revealed that the state targeted the vaccination of additional two million residents in the new exercise.

He said, “We are going to give a window to allow for this vaccination and that window starts from today (Monday) till the next 60 days.

“Anybody after 60 days that is not vaccinated will not be allowed in our offices and schools. Such a person will not be allowed to do business with us. We will chase this person in our markets; you will be required to carry your vaccine cards with you at all times.”

Abiodun also disclosed that the state had increased vaccination centres from 131 to 509.
