Sanwo-Olu cancels Independence Day parade

LAGOS State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has cancelled the parade which is usually a part of ceremonies marking the Independence Day celebration in the state.

The governor issued the directive according to a statement on Wednesday by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy Gbenga Omotoso.

Mr Sanwo-Olu said the planned parade and other activities that involve the gathering of more than 50 people should be cancelled due to COVID-19.

He also urged Lagosians not to relax their vigilance against COVID-19 so as not to reverse the gains that the state has made in fighting the disease.

“They are to keep embracing social distancing and washing of hands with soap and water. Anybody who feels unwell should stay indoors and contact health authorities,” he said.

According to the statement, the police and other security agencies have been directed to ensure that nobody flouts the directives given in the interest of all, especially now that the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) is warning that a second wave of the deadly disease could occur.
