Lagos state government has debunked report that Lagosians who violate the 12am to 4am curfew imposed by the Federal Government and other protocols would be fined up to N20,000 – N500,000 when caught on December 31, Insidenaija reports.
The government in a statement on Wednesday, described the information as inaccurate and misleading.
“The attention of LASG has been drawn to an online news quoting the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso, as saying fines ranging between N20,000 and N500,000 will be imposed on violators of the curfew on Dec. 31, 2020. This is inaccurate and misleading,” part of the statement reads.
The government advised residents to comply with COVID-19 protocols because the cases are rising. The role of religious organisations in fighting the pandemic is well noted.
The Christian Association of Nigeria has issued a statement on how Churches should conduct their watchnight services.
The Sanwo-Olu administration has maintained a harmonious relationship with religious organisations and has confidence in the ability of their leaders to ensure compliance with COVID-19 protocols amid the clamour for crossover services.
