Lagos state govt suspends reopening of churches and Mosques
Governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Sanwo-Olu, has suspended the initially planned reopening of religious centers round the state.
On June 4, the state governor Sanwo-Olu announced that religious centers will be allowed to open for worship provided they follow the COVID-19 guidelines. He said Mosques will be allowed to resume worship on June 19 while churches in the state will be allowed to conduct services from Sunday, June 21.
However during a press briefing this afternoon, Governor Sanwo-Olu said the reopening of worship centers has been suspended. He said the decision is based on the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the state.
Lagos state has the highest number of Covid-19 cases in Nigeria, with a total of 7319 confirmed cases.
