Easter: Lockdown remains in Lagos, Sanwo-Olu warns


Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has asked Lagosians to dismiss the speculations that the two-week Coronavirus lockdown has been suspended.


He admonished the citizens to “think long term” and stay safe while the country is still combating the ravaging pandemic.

Governor Sanwo-Olu made this announcement while commemorating with the Christian faithful on the occasion of Easter, a significance of the birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

On his Twitter handle this morning, he stated that:

“The true meaning of Good Friday and Easter is the power of sacrifice. “This weekend, the sacrifice of staying at home and social distancing is required to stop the spread of COVID-19.” “Avoid fake news, the lockdown hasn’t been lifted. Think longterm, #StayAtHomeAndStaySafe.

“The Federal Government has announced a public holiday, do spend time with your loved ones AT HOME,” Sanwo-Olu warned.

“We are thankful for technology; I will be worshipping virtually with my family on #Easter Sunday. Kindly say a prayer for all our health workers,” the governor ended.
