Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor, has called on Lagosians to forget about holding any vigils this yuletide season and to also respect the 12am to 4am curfew imposed by the Federal Government.
This comes as Crossover Services hold in various churches on December 31, 2020.
The Governor, on Thursday, while responding to questions from journalists at the State House, Marina Lagos urged religious leaders to ensure that their followers observe the protocols put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus as the country battles the second wave of the pandemic.
He said, “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.”
