Independence day Parade Cancelled In Lagos

The Lagos State Government has declared the celebration of the 60th Independence Anniversary due to the ravaging effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still with us.

Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has announced that the planned parade to celebrate independence and other activities that involve the gathering of more than 50 people should be canceled especially now that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) is warning that a second wave of the deadly disease could occur.

The governor according to a statement signed by the state commissioner for information and strategy, Gbenga Omotosho, congratulated Lagosians on the occasion and strongly advised that they should celebrate quietly at home and pray for the country.

He urged the people in the state not to relax their vigilance against COVID-19 so as not to reverse the gains that the state has made in fighting the disease by maintaining social distancing and washing of hands with soap and water.
