COVID-19 2ND WAVE: 12th Okunmadewa Get-together Breakfast Bash Condenses


As concerns over the second wave of coronavirus infections in Nigeria are agitated, the 12th edition of Prof. Foluso Okunmadewa's annual breakfast bash, the coming together of family and friends of the host for the purpose of exhorting God in thanksgiving and prayers was merely a condensed version of what had been the established modus operandi. 

Some usual faces were not seen as some regular attendees had to cut back on travel plans while avoiding crowded places. At the 12th edition, greetings with handshakes were dropped for elbows bumps as facemasks were given freely to all participants after thoroughly sanitizing the hands.
