COVID-19: Lagos State Governor directs worship centres to suspend all night services


The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has directed worship centres to suspend all night services including vigils and crossover events, noting that the Federal Government-imposed curfew between midnight and 4am would be enforced.

According to him, “All over the world, Christmas period is associated with gathering, merriment and traveling, which all, sadly, contribute to the spread of the virus. We must now seek to minimise as much of these activities as we can, at this time. Let this Christmas be a period of sober reflection." 

“The quicker we are able to tame this raging virus, through responsible behaviour, the higher the likelihood that we will enjoy a 2021 that is not as restrictive and challenging as 2020. By acting responsibly, we are not doing only ourselves a favour, we are doing other people a favour as well, especially those among us who are elderly or medically vulnerable.”

The Governor said that there has been an upsurge in the number of COVID-19 as Lagos was now recording 18 per cent in positive results from daily testing. He appealed to the residents to join in the effort to tame the virus by strictly adhering to the public health guidelines issued by the State Government.

The Governor on Thursday afternoon, cheerfully walked out after 14 days in self-isolation after he caught the Coronavirus.

As at the time of this report, Lagos state has recorded 22,562 coronavirus cases and 220 deaths. Nigeria as a country, has recorded 81,963 cases with 1,242 deaths.
