Covid-19: Akeredolu fumes at Non Compliance in Churches amid Delta Variant
By Our Reporter
Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state has described as unfortunate the rate at which Churches refuse to adhere to the protocols of COVID-19 despite the high rate of the Delta variant of the pandemic.
Akeredolu who was at the former opening of the 3rd session of the 13th Synod of Owo Diocese held in Okeluse in Ose local government observed with worries and disappointment that delegates and clerics at the synod did not comply with the COVID-19 protocols despite the population at the church .
He however admonished the people to continue to adhere strictly to all Covid-19 protocols, particularly to ensure that the Delta variant doesn’t spread among the people of the state.
Akeredolu said “Most of us are not complying with the COVID-19 protocols, which is most unfortunate. We should not take this COVID-19 for granted.
Don’t take this COVID-19 for granted, particularly when you understand the Delta variant that is just coming which is more dangerous than what we had before.
This is my appeal to most of us, particularly if you have not taken your vaccination. Most of us here have not been vaccinated. I have had my two jabs and I still wear my mask because I am not taking it for granted.
I want advise us because that is one one the things that occurred to me when I came in. Everybody feels that it is bye bye to COVID-19. It is not bye bye to COVID-19 yet. Pls take time to obey these COVID-19 protocols, wear your masks, wash your hands because it is necessary.
I hardly use other people’s microphones because it could be dangerous. In other places, before you pass microphones to other persons, you will have to spray it.”
