Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that people need to adapt to changes in lifestyle as the COVID-19 pandemic is still ravaging.
The Governor said this while declaring open a 2-day virtual training for members of the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO) on Protocol, Security and Etiquette on Friday.
He said “It is important that we keep re-strategizing and position ourselves for optimum performance in the future. It is important because life, as we used to know it, has been drastically altered and we need to adapt and innovate with the changing times and we can only do this effectively when we are willing to review, adjust and innovate to suit changing times, priorities and needs. In the new normal, this is an absolute must!”
“I must say that much of this year has gone by in a blur amidst the global Covid-19 pandemic that has ravaged much of the world, to date, with Lagos State and Nigeria at large, not being spared. We are, however, emerging slowly out of the perilous season, even though there is still so much we do not know about the virus or the rate of contagion.
“It is therefore apt and pleasing to note that this conference is being conducted virtually, a sign of our new season and times and it is the third in a series of the seminar organised for COWLSO members.
“I want to thank the First Lady, Lagos State, Dr. Mrs. Claudiana Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu and the wife of the Deputy Governor, Mrs Oluremi Hamzat for not allowing the pandemic to slow them down. They have taken advantage of the difficult times we face to educate members of the Committee,” the Governor said.
