Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo Olu has urged Nigerian living in the state to comply with the 12am-4am curfew imposed by the Federal Government as churches hold their Crossover Services on December 31.
Speaking at a media briefing on Thursday, Sanwo Olu urged Lagosians to observe the protocols instituted to contain the spread of COVID-19 as the second wave of the disease dawns.
“There are not meant to be any gathering. The curfew set by the NCDC (Nigeria Centre for Disease Control) and the PTF (Presidential Task Force on COVID-19) is still active. There is a national curfew from 12 midnight to 4am and that has to be respected. No night vigils in any form.
“The instructions are there and all of the restrictions are in place as set by the PTF and the Lagos State Safety Commission.
“So, there are no vigils anywhere. This is just one Christmas, we will have many Christmas. So, you can have your prayers at home,” Sanwo-Olu said.
