Lagos state

The Lagos State government says it is considering a full re-opening of the critical sectors of its economy.

The state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, disclosed this when he spoke at a briefing after the State’s Security Council meeting held at the State House in Marina.

According to the governor, the State Government would be rolling out the Register-to-Open initiative as part of the plans that would enable it to assess the level of readiness of the players in the identified sectors for supervised operations.

The governor said officials from the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSSC) and Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) will be visiting restaurants, companies, religious houses to assess their level of readiness.

With the size of the State’s economy and numbers of businesses that operate on its domain, the governor said the Government could not afford to keep people and businesses on lockdown permanently.
