The Lagos State Government has denied relaxing the lockdown in the state as the Easter celebration starts this weekend.
This is coming after speculations and rumours that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will relax the curfew this weekend for the Easter celebrations, but the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotosho has said the lockdown has not been relaxed.
Mr. Gbenga said this on Thursday, April 9, 2020, during a joint ministerial briefing on COVID-19 intervention in the state.
According to the commissioner, the extension or relaxation of the lockdown will be made by the Federal Government, enjoining Lagosians to celebrate Easter in their various houses.
The commissioner emphasized that if the lockdown would be extended or relaxed, then, it is the business of the Federal Government and not the Governor.
