Following the Federal Government’s directive for a low-key Independence Day celebration this year, the Ogun State Government has taken the decision to cancel all previously arranged events for the anniversary on October 1st, 2023.
A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Tokunbo Talabi, noted that the decision aligns with current national sentiment and aims to reflect the mood of the nation. The state government kindly urges the citizens of the state to observe this day with solemnity, dedicating their time to prayer for the country.
He said Governor Dapo Abiodun’s administration firmly believes that the heartfelt supplications of the people during this critical period will be heard and answered by God.
We request the understanding and cooperation of all citizens as we mark this year’s Independence Day in a low-key manner, with the unwavering hope that brighter days lie ahead for our nation.
