ABEOKUTA – As a result of the fourth wave of COVID-19 in the country, the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has said he will not host any get-together to mark the new year 2022.
In a statement issued on Saturday, January 1, 2022 in Abeokuta by Kunle Somorin, Chief Press Secretary to the Ogun State Governor and made available to www.startrendinternational.com, the announcement has become necessary to clear the speculations that the Governor will be hosting a party on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at his Iperu-Remo home.
“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 statement continued.
Governor Dapo Abiodun enjoins the residents of the State to celeberate in moderation and observe all COVID-19 protocols.
He expresses hope that the 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.
Abiodun once again, wishes all a happy and more prosperous new year, the statement concluded.
