Covid-19: The battle is not over yet, Oyetola charges citizens

The Governor of Osun State, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, has charged the people of the state not to lose their guard in the fight against Covid-19.

This is also as he disabused the minds of many who still believe in conspiracy theories surrounding Covid-19 vaccination.

The governor made the statement known through his Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Olatunbosun Oyintiloye when he visited some worship centres in Ilesa in continuation of campaign against Covid-19.

In his words”We are here to reawaken the consciousness of the public to the reality that Covid-19 is still much alive and yet to be defeated.

“Although there’s hope for us as a society due to the recent discovery of Covid-19 vaccine, but this is not a reason for us to jettison all the protocols as stipulated by the government.

“It therefore behooves on all of us to adhere strictly to the rules such as the wearing of nose mask, use of alcohol-based sanitiser, social distance, among other measures that can help in averting community transmission” he added

Oyintiloye further debunked the narrative that covid-19 vaccine is harmful. He appealed to the citizens to embrace the opportunity of the vaccine, noting that it offers us hope for a safe society that is free of coronavirus. 

Speaking during the programme, the minister in charge of the Sacred Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Idasa Ilesa, Elder Apostle Michael Olatunji and Pastor Isaac Fakunle of the Apostolic Church of Nigeria, Oke Ooye Ilesa commended the Oyetola led administration for its swift action in the containment of the pandemic. He promised to support government in its quest to ensure a virus-free state.

In their separate remark, the minister in charge of Victory life Chapel International, Imon Ilesa pastor Aderanti Adewoye and Very Rev. D.I Fadugba of St. John Anglican Cathedral, Iloro Ilesa assured the state government that the church is resolute to join forces with other stakeholders in combating the notorious disease ravaging the whole world, noting that strict adherence to civil authorities is one the teachings of the church.
