The Anambra State Government, today, 31 December 2020, reiterated the ban on Night club in the states. The Governor has placed a ban on nightclubs in the state for one month to ensure the safety of lives of its citizens across the state.
The latest event was made known to the public, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) by Mr C-Don Adinuba, Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightment.
Adinuba urged all night club operators to comply to the new directives. He further stated that the ban was made in response to the increase of COVID-19 related cases within the state, and the rise of a new strain of the virus in many other parts of the world.
We need to make precautionary steps to guard against any form of Coronavirus spread, as we may have returnees from outside the country with high incidences of COVID-19 to celebrate the Yuletide.
“The state government has decided to act swiftly to avoid a situation where a lockdown will be inevitable with its attendant challenges,” the commissioner said.
Adinubu also stated that the state will also begin suspending many other activities and that the night club ban was only the first of the series of measures, the Government is taking to curb the spread of the virus.
