COVID-19:Gov.Abiodun Cancels New Year Get-Together For 2022

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has cancelled hosting of any get-together to mark the new year 2022, as part of  measures to control the spread of fourth wave of COVID-19 in the country

Abiodun in a statement in Abeokuta by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, said that the announcement became necessary, following the speculation that he will be hosting a party on Sunday, 2nd of January, 2022 at his Iperu-Remo country home in Ikenne Remo Local Government Area of the state

His words,"The usual celebration will not hold this year to avoid undermining the efforts to combat COVID-19 in the State, and rolling back the success that has been recorded, particularly in view of the fourth wave of the pandemic."

The governor  enjoined the residents of the State to celeberate in moderation and observe all COVID-19 protocols. 

He expresses hope that ongoing global efforts will soon sufficiently tame the pandemic to allow for the usual pomp, pegeantry and large gathering that new year get-together attracts.

 Once again, he wishes all a happy and more prosperous new year, the statement concluded
