The Lagos State government led by Sanwo-Olu has reiterated that the total lockdown in the State was put in plcae by President Muhammadu Buhari and therefore, the State will abide on it except order came from Aso-Rock.
Lagos government was reacting to a report on some media houses (Not Sunrise News) that the Covid-19 lockdown has been relaxed in the state for the sake of the Easter celebration.
The Chief Press Secretary to Lagos State Governor, Mr Gboyega Akosile made the position of the State known on Twitter that it is not true that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has relaxed the state’s lockdown order for Easter celebrations.
“The lockdown order was made by the Federal Government, and the state government was carried along. The Governor will not unilaterally relax the restrictions of movement. The purveyors of the fake news are mischief makers who are only interested in undermining the efforts of the state government to combat and curtail the coronavirus disease. Lagosians should be wary of fake news at this time,” he said
