(JUST IN) Churches, Mosques To Reopen In Lagos Effective August 7 - GOVERNOR SANWO-OLU

Worship centres in Lagos State will reopen effective August 7, 2020.

This position was made known on Saturday (today) by the governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu. 

It would be recalled that worship centres had been shut since as part of measures to curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

Prior to this time, the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 had earlier okayed the reopening of churches and mosques in the country but the Lagos State government insisted that worship centres remained shut.

Speaking during a briefing today, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said, “Places of worship in Lagos will now be opened from Friday, the 7th of August for our Muslim worshippers, and on Sunday, the 9th of August for our Christian worshippers.”

Meanwhile, as of Friday (yesterday) night, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), had declared that Lagos State had recorded over 15,000 Covid-19 infections and about 200 associated fatalities, the highest by a state in the country.
