Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has insisted that the state cannot afford another lockdown.
Sanwo-Olu stated this in a statement released on Saturday.
This comes a day after he ordered schools to close indefinitely and civil servants to work from home, as the second wave of COVID-19 sweeps across Nigeria.
“Yesterday, we issued guidelines to help us in the next phase of our battle with the virus. Lagosians have relaxed and the effects are evident with increasing cases and unfortunate deaths
“These guidelines will affect us all but we need to be strong and we need to persevere.
“We cannot afford another total lockdown so I enjoin us to keep observing the prescribed protocols and the required lifestyle adjustments that will help us enter 2021 stronger, healthier and safer,” part of the statement read.
