Easter Celebration: Lagos Govt Denies Lifting Ban On Movement




The Lagos State Government has denied speculations that it has lifted the ban on movement due to the Easter celebration.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotosho dismissed the rumour, adding that the government had not relaxed the restriction.

Recall that the Chairman of the Lagos State Chapter of the Cherubim & Seraphim had called on the state government to allow both Christian and Muslim faithful carry out their spiritual responsibilities to God from Friday through Sunday, this week, as God plans to cleanse the land of all forms of illnesses including the ravaging Coronavirus.

Addressing journalists during the inter-ministerial media briefing attended by select members of the Lagos State Executive Council in respect of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr. Omotosho dismissed the claim.

According to him, the governor has not made such a decision because it was President Muhammadu Buhari who initiated the lockdown in the first place.

“There’s a rumors going around that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has relaxed the lockdown in the state, in the first place, the lockdown is not a device of the state, it’s a directive of the federal government.”

“It was announced by the President himself, so if it’s going to be relaxed it will be Federal Government that will announce to either relax it or extend it.

”Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has not relaxed any lockdown and we implore you all to continue to be responsive and abide by the rules, we have been told by experts that’s the only way we can fight this,” he added.
