Why Lagos State Government Is Suspending The Reopening of Churches And Mosques

Lagos State government has announced that it will no longer go ahead with its plan to reopen churches and mosques this weekend.

Recall that on June 3, the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced that religious centers will be allowed to open for worship provided they follow the COVID-19 guidelines. He said Mosques will be allowed to resume worship on June 19 while churches in the state will be allowed to conduct services from Sunday, June 21.

However at a press briefing this afternoon, Governor Sanwo-Olu said the reopening of worship centers has been suspended. He said the decision is based on the rising number of the coronavirus pandemic cases in the state.
