Also in the press statement the governors announced the dissolution of the Board of Directors of O’DUA Investment Limited.
They, however, mandated the Group Managing Director of the conglomerate to take charge of the business venture bequeathed to the states by the old Western Region.
The statement reads: “The South West governors at its virtual meeting held on Thursday 16th April, 2020 resolved that “as owner state governors we dissolve the Board of Directors of ODUA Investment Limited with immediate effect. The Group Managing Director should take charge of the conglomerate affairs pending the constitution of a new Board.”
In a related development, the Oyo State government, on Friday, announced plans to produce one million face masks, saying 100 tailors would be trained by experts to make 10,000 face masks each.
Governor Seyi Makinde, who handed down the directive on Friday as part of measures to stop further spread of COVID-19 in Oyo State, also announced that the number of positive cases of coronavirus has increased to 15, with two more tests coming back positive on Friday.
