Easter: Sanwo-Olu Breaks Silence On Relaxing COVID-19 Lockdown


Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has asked residents of the state to dismiss rumours that the two-weeks Coronavirus lockdown has been suspended.

In a series of tweets on his Twitter handle on Friday morning, the governor also rejoiced with Christian faithful on the occasion of Easter, a significance of the birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Sanwo-Olu urged Lagosians to “think long term” and stay safe while the state and federal government are tackling the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

He advised Lagosians to spend time with their loved ones at home as the federal Government has announced a public holiday.

He said: “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 said

“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 added.
