Happy New Year in advance!

Dec 31, 2020, 12:29 PM

As we bid farewell to 2020, generally, the year has been a memorial year in the sense it coincided with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

The worldwide outbreak of the virus has definitely presented challenges for state and local health officials, who have been trying to balance the need for safety against people’s individual freedoms and the health of the economy.

We all know the passage of another year and arrival of a new year causes many people to contemplate reform. But we must not forget the fact that the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic is one of the most complicated health challenges out of time. Since the first reported case in the country in March 2020, many have been asking when lives would return to normal.

We therefore would thank the Almighty God for guiding and seeing us through 2020 as a nation, families, individuals, corporate bodies and entities.
