Lagos State government has said event centres, cinemas, restaurants and social clubs should not pay to anyone to get Safety Compliance Certificate for the reopening of their centres, as it is offered by the state government free of charge.

The Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission, Mr Lanre Mojola stated this at a press briefing on the reopening of religious and social centres.

He said if any agents of the state government or person ask for money to get the Safety Compliance Certificate, such persons should be reported to the state government through the whistleblower numbers.

He said the process for online registration with the agency would not take more than five minutes to complete. He added that over 1000 social and event centres had applied and their registration has been processed, with each registration process completed under five minutes.

Mojola asked that religious bodies should comply with all the guidelines rolled out by the state government for the reporting of worship centres.

He further said his agency would be collaborating with security agencies to move around to ensure compliance.

He said also the state government would not tolerate disobedience to the guidelines, imploring churches and mosques to put in place appropriate Coronavirus safety protocols.
