SAN FRANCISCO, June 04, (THEWILL) – The Lagos State Safety Commission said it has opened a register for religious and social centres in its domain in preparation for their full reopening in furtherance of the Register-to-Open initiative of the state government, as directed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The commission explained this in a statement by Lanre Mojola, its Director-General saying: “Further to the directive of Mr Governor with respect to the Register-to-Open initiative of Lagos State government, we hereby confirm that all religious and social centers (social clubs, event centres, restaurants, bars, night clubs, spas, cinemas and gyms) within the state can commence the registration process on the designated portal immediately.”

The governor had said the state government was considering full reopening of the economy, including critical sectors like tourism and hospitality, sporting, event centres, cinemas, entertainment, and religious gatherings.

He, however, said businesses in these sectors would have to undergo re-registration before reopening and that the Lagos State Safety Commission and Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) would be visiting offices and business premises to assess the level of their readiness to resume operation.
