BREAKING: Lagos Reopens Worship Centers

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has announced that worship centres in the state will reopen on Friday, August 7.

Sanwo-Olu confirmed this during a media briefing on Saturday.

“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, the governor said.

“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.

“In addition, the following conditions must also be fully met by all our religious centres; regular gatherings are permitted to hold but vigils and other services should still be on hold for now.

While churches and mosques will be allowed to reopen, nightclubs will remain shut.

According to the governor, restaurants in the state can now operate eat-in services from Friday, August 14.
