The management of Ovation Media Group, organisers of the yearly Christmas fun/musical fiesta, The Ovation Carol, has cancelled the 2020 edition of the event.
According to a press statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the group, Chief Dele Momodu, the event, which was scheduled to hold on Sunday, December 13, 2020, was cancelled as a result of the growing concerns raised about the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic, and after due consultation with the lead sponsor, The Esther Ajayi Foundation.
Momodu noted that as a responsible organisation, the safety of the guests is seen as of paramount importance and must receive top priority.
He said that though preparations were in top gear, the event has to be called off, however, efforts will still be made to go ahead in supporting worthy causes and projects.
The company regrets every inconvenience it must have caused stakeholders, well wishers and friends as well as suppliers.
