NNPP Accuses Gov.Abiodun Of Violating COVID-19 Protocool In Ogun

New Nigeria People’s  Party NNPP has  accused Governor Dapo Abiodun  of violating the COVID-19 protocool in the country, by mixing with large crowd of people on Saturday at the Odun Omo-Olowu Day festival in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital 

The State Chairman of the party, Comrade Olaposi Sunday Oginni in a statement  on Saturday in Abeokuta,  expressed concern over the  possible out-break of the third wave of the deadly Corona virus in the state, arising from the non-compliance by  the governor  who met  with the Service chiefs and signed  Anti-Open Grazing bill last Thursday at his office inside the State Secretariat in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, just  few hours  after his arrival from the United Kingdom

NNPP is worried that the governor who should know better, also participated at the Nigeria’s 61st Independence Day  parade held on Friday with large crowd of school children and military personnel in attendance  at the MKO Abiola International Stadium in Kuto ,Abeokuta  

The party is also disturbed that the governor  failed to take a cue from President Mohammedu Buhari who complied strictly  with the mandatory 14days quarantine period on his arrival from the United Nations General Assembly in New York, United States, while the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo presided over  the Federal Executive Council meeting and performed other  official functions on behalf of the president 

According to the party, “The governor would have avoided such official functions, if he had complied with the constitutional provision of writing to the State House of Assembly , directing his deputy to act on his behalf during his stay in the United Kingdom,  as contained in the petition of NNPP before the house”  

“We in the New Nigeria People’s Party, therefore call on the governor not to continue to expose the lives of people of Ogun state to danger by adhering strictly to the established COVID-19 protocool by the Presidential Committee “, the party urged
