The Lagos State Safety Commission has opened a register for religious and social centres in its domain. The registration of such centres is in preparation for their full reopening.
According to a statement issued by the commission, the directive is in furtherance of the Register-to-Open initiative of the state government, as directed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu,
The statement reads: “Further to the directive of Mr Governor with respect to the Register-to-Open initiative of Lagos State government, we hereby confirm that all religious and social centers (social clubs, event centres, restaurants, bars, night clubs, spas, cinemas and gyms) within the state can commence the registration process on the designated portal www.lasgsafetyreg.com immediately.”
It would be recalled that Governor Sanwo-Olu in his recent update on the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the state had disclosed that the government was considering full reopening of the economy but operations would be within the confines of stipulated guidelines.
“We are at a level where we are reviewing the other arms of the economy. In the coming days, we will be starting what we call Register-to-Open, which means all players in the restaurant business, event centres, entertainment, malls and cinemas will go through a form of re-registration and space management.” Sanyo-Olu had said.
