Ekiti State Government has advised residents of the State to be safety
and security conscious particularly during the yuletide period and
avoid lifestyles that could endanger their lives.
The State Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, Hon.
Akin Omole who gave the advice in Ado Ekiti, stressed the importance
of strict adherence to laid down protocols to prevent the spread of
Covid-19 in the State.
Omole described Christmas as a season of love and peaceful
co-existence when people should extend hand of care and kindness
adding that the period commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, who is
the symbol of Christianity and should therefore be used to pray for
the State while following the footsteps of Christ.
Reiterating the commitment of the Fayemi led administration to the
general wellbeing of people in the State, Omole assured that the State
Government would leave no stone unturned to guarantee the safety of
lives and property of the people.
According to him, the peculiarity of the year occasioned by the global
pandemic and the recent spike in cases of the virus in several
countries have resulted in a call for low-key celebrations, stressing
that it would be unreasonable for anyone to flout government
directives aimed at preventing avoidable spread of the virus.
He therefore called for the continued support of all stakeholders for
the efforts of government to develop the State and make life more
meaningful for the people.
