Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu

Worship Centres in Lagos State are to reopen from August 7, Governor Babajide Sanwoolu has announced.

Religious centres in the state were shut in March as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Announcing the reopening of religious centers in the state Saturday, the governor 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.

“We will only allow 50 per cent of their maximum capacities, either at the church or at the mosque. Churches who have a Saturday worship day will also be allowed to hold worship.

“We must reiterate that places of worship have their regular once a week service at designated days. For the avoidance of doubt, there will be Friday worships for our Muslim followers and Sunday worships for our Christian followers.

“We will monitor this for the next couple of weeks and see how compliance gets as we move along. They are encouraged to have multiple services on those days but they should restrict it to those designated days of worship.

(This Day)
