Oyewole, who is the Managing Director, Consumers Top Brands Ltd., said the postponement was in line with the social distancing aimed at containing the spread of the virus.
“In light of the recent developments concerning COVID-19, Magodo Cultural Festival 2020 will now be taking place on June 12th which happens to be the Democracy day and June 13th.
“All our participants and partners have always shown keen interest in the promotion of our cultural heritage which the festival is all about.
“In spite the increase in Coronavirus cases globally, none of them has lost interest, our motivation is not money but to see our culture being promoted.
“No one has lost interest and I see no sign of such. Bearing in mind that health is wealth, our health comes first and we must do all to be saved,’’ she said.
Oyewole commended government for placing a travel ban on high risk countries and suspension of crowded gatherings which she described as the best decision now.
“I would say that government has taken very excellent steps in checking the spread of the virus.
“The ban on high risk countries is the best for Nigeria, although it is coming late. All the cases we have today are from abroad but we still appreciate the Federal Government for taking that decision,’’ she said.
