The Association of Local Government of Nigeria(ALGON), Oyo State Chapter, has sent its best wishes to the state governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde , who announced yesterday thay he has contracted the dreaded coronavirus.
In a statement signed by its chairman, Prince Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye, ALGON noted that instead of trading blames as to the cause(s) or venue(s) of the infection afflicting the governor, people should concentrate more on how to combat coronavirus, the common enemy that has now become a real danger to humanity and its health and economic prosperity globally.
The statement read in part: “Coronavirus disease knows no frontier, no class, no political party, religion or ethnic origin, so we must unite for its containment and cure because no one is safe in as much as the dangerous virus is still in anyone’s cell.
“A lesson to learn now is to be our brother’s keepers in togetherness and common objective which is to see a COVID-19 free Oyo State, Nigeria and the entire world.
“We equally wish all those who have been afflicted well and quick recovery. Please let us obey all medical directives and government’s order of a lockdown. The limited sacrifice from all of us is better than mass death, sorrows and tears. God forbids. We shall definitely overcome.
“We eagerly look forward to welcoming His Excellency, Mr. Seyi Makinde, back on his seat and leadership position of our pacesetter state, hale and hearty. GET WELL SOON YOUR EXCELLENCY.”
