Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State has announced that anyone without mask would not move about in the state beginning from Monday, April 6.
The governor had, on Wednesday, announced that the ‘No mask, no movement’ policy would take effect from today (Friday) April 3.
Governor Ayade added that the policy was to shield residents of the state from the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic.
A statement released by Special Adviser to the governor on Media and Publicity, Christian Ita, on Friday morning, said the policy would now take effect from Monday, April 6.
Ita explained that the shift in date for commencement of the implementation of the policy was necessitated by the need to allow the state-owned garment factory have enough time to produce more masks for further free deliveries to the people and residents of Cross River state.
Ita said this was to ensure that more people have the masks before the enforcement commences.
