Fuji musician and special adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on culture and tourism, Taye Akande Adebisi, populary known as Taye Currency, has again ignored the guidelines released by the government and disease control agency to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
He performed a ‘welcome party’ at the ancient Mapo hall yesterday, see VIDEO.
OYOINSIGHT.COM had earlier reported how the musician ignored the public health advisory to Nigerians on coronavirus disease statement by the Nigeria Centre For Disease Control, NCDC, when he performed at the unification rally of the ruling party in Oyo State last Wednesday, less than 24 hours after returning from the United Kingdom, UK – one of the worst hit nations by coronavirus.
On Saturday, the musician again performed at a ‘welcome dance party’ held at Royal Park hotel, Ajah, Lekki, Lagos State.
After that, the musician also performed at another public event in Ikirun, Osun State.
These two events had in attendance thousands of people who trooped out to watch him perform.
However, his presence at both events is against the guidelines contained in a public health advisory to Nigerians on coronavirus disease statement by the NCDC dated the 15th of March 2019.
This guidelines state that “travelers from countries with widespread community transmission must undergo secondary screening at the point of entry, self-isolate for 14 days after arrival and be followed up by NCDC and Port Health Services”.
Investigations by OYOINSIGHT.COM revealed that the musician returned from the United Kingdom on Tuesday 17th March 2019 which is less than 14 days ago, so he should still be in self isolation like the daughter of the country’s president. While in the UK, he visited various cities including London, Manchester, Barking, Mottingham, and Cardiff. He also performed in the presence of a large set of people during this period.
These two events are also a disregard for the executive order of the governments of Lagos and Osun state that there must not be a public gathering of more than 20 and 50 people respectively to prevent the spread of a virus that has killed thousands globally and infected 27 people in Nigeria as at press time.
