The Chief Press Secretary to Lagos State Governor, Gboyega Akosile has rubbished claims that Babajide Sanwo-Olu relaxed the state’s lockdown order for Easter celebrations.
Akosile made this known in a chat with an24.net and described it as fake news.
The CPS while debunking the news as false asked Lagosians to ignore it.
“The lockdown order was made by the Federal Government, and the state government was carried along. The Governor will not unilaterally relax the restrictions of movement. The purveyors of the fake news are mischief makers who are only interested in undermining the efforts of the state government to combat and curtail the coronavirus disease. Lagosians should be wary of fake news at this time,” he said.
An online publication had earlier published the news, claiming the Governor directed that Lagosians should be allowed between the hours of 8am and 4am on Friday to enable them shop for the Easter celebrations.
