Aregbesola asked Nigerians to observe safety guidelines as the mark the celebration while reiterating the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

The Minister stressed that the Federal Government remains resolute in its quest to entrench peaceful coexistence, national cohesion and stability in its drive to attaining sustainable development.
