Makinde has faced backlashes from Nigerians for allowing a mega rally by the Peoples Democratic Party to hold in the state’s capital as the country battles with the Coronavirus outbresk.

The Lagos state government had confirmed five new cases of the deadly coronavirus that same day, leading the state to ban gatherings of more than 50 persons.

“Between yesterday and today, a lot has come to light in Nigeria regarding COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus Disease, which has been ravaging the world for the past few months,” Makinde said in a tweet.

“I have received your complaints about the rally that was held yesterday, and I feel obligated to state in clear terms that we acted based on the information we had at that time. In retrospect, it should not have happened and I take responsibility for that lapse in judgement.
