We uphold the sanctity of human life over everything else – we commiserate with nations that have lost citizens in their hundreds during this trying time.” Odusanwo stated further that the Main Organizing Committee will join the Nigerian Government to watch developments of the pandemic till the end of April 2020. This automatically means that the event billed for 27th and 28th April 27 and 28, stands postponed but the MOC assured that they will be working from the background; assuring that as soon as the relevant bans are relaxed; a new date will be fixed for the Summit.
