The Lagos state government has dismissed reports that the lockdown in the state due to the Coronavirus pandemic has been lifted for the Easter celebration this weekend.
At the press briefing today, the state Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso, said the lockdown is still in full force. He said it is only the Federal government that can lift the lockdown order.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has not relaxed any lockdown. The lockdown is still on and we appeal to Lagosians to continue to obey the directive to continue to be responsible because that is the only way the experts have said we can fight this disease.
The lockdown is still on. If it is going to be extended or relaxed, it is the business of the Federal government. The announcement is not going to be made by Babajide Sanwo-Olu because he did not impose it in the first place” he said
President Buhari on March 29th, announced a lockdown on the state as part of measures to curb the spread of the ravaging Coronavirus.
