This was contained in a notice by the state government on Friday, titled, ‘Stay At Home’. “Weddings and social gatherings must not exceed 300 people with prior clearance from the Lagos State Safety Commission,” the notice partly read.
The Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission, Lanre Mojola, said the state government is concerned about large gatherings and big weddings as the state experiences a spike in the number of Covid-19 cases.
He added that the clearance is free and prospective couples will have to go on the Commission’s website to input the details of their weddings, adding that safety marshals will be deployed to such events to enforce all Covid protocols to prevent any possible spread of the virus.
“If it is not a big wedding, maybe 50 people, 100 people, we are not really concerned. But if it is a large gathering with 300 people and above, it is mandatory that you get a clearance. It is a free clearance; no payment whatsoever,” he said.
