The launch of a book, “The Beauty of Marriage and You” written by Mrs. Joy Osaro-Onaiwu, the wife of theChairman of the Governors Mandate Network (GMN) has been postponed indefinitely.
The event was scheduled to hold at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Center, Wuse 2, Abuja on Thursday 26th March, 2020.
Making the announcement via a release on Tuesday, the GMN boss, Earl Osaro Onaiwu said the prevailing escalation of the coronavirus pandemic has made it inevitable to postpone the events which was billed to host top echelons of the society including governors, senator, clergy, businessmen and other VIPs.
Mr. Onaiwu said it would be unconscionable to hold such a gathering when the nation is facing serious threats of a global pandemic such as the COVID-19.
He therefore called for understanding of the numerous guests that have been invited for the occasion while urging Nigerians to obey all expert advice on how to prevent further spread of the coronavirus such as staying at home for those on non essential duties, maintaining social distance and constant hand washing.
He then said the event will be rescheduled and the date properly communicated to guests at a later date after the global pandemic is conquered.
