Kwara Government has said that football viewing centres are not allowed to open yet, as such facilities could lead to the widespread transmission of the coronavirus among viewers.

Rafiu Ajakaye, Chief Press Secretary to the governor and spokesman of the Technical Committee on COVID-19 in the state, said in a statement on Tuesday in Ilorin.

Ajakaye said that the government was aware that the English Premier League would begin on Wednesday.

“This is to state clearly that viewing centres are not allowed to open under any guise during this pandemic.

“Doing so will promote the spread of the virus, endanger people’s lives and further stretch public resources to the limit.

“The government fully appreciates and apologises for the inconveniences this restriction means for some businesses and football enthusiasts,’’ he said.

Ajakaye said that the government has a duty to ensure that lives are protected and “this cannot be compromised’’.

He said that the government also warned against mass gatherings at weddings, clubs and partying of any kind at this time.

He added that violators shall come under the full weight of the Kwara Infectious Diseases Regulations 2020. (NAN)
