Fashola bans religious activities in Lagos secretariat

The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola has placed a total ban on all religious activities within the premises of the state secretariat located in Alausa area of the state as a preemptive measure to avert bombings of worship centers within the secretariat.

 The directive, which is contained in a circular with Reference No. EO/BRF/003 of 2012 obtained by Daily Sun was personally issued and signed by the state governor.

 To ensure prompt compliance, the circular was sent to all ministries, departments and agencies with the subject matter and it was expected to end the daily conduct of prayers by Muslim faithful behind the Ministry of Justice and behind the Ministry of Tourism and Intergovernmental Relations.

 Fashola, not willing to leave anything to chance, instructed henceforth that all Muslim and Christian faithful use the Central Mosque and the Chapel of Christ the Light respectively to conduct their religious affairs.
 He also ordered that only vehicles bearing the official state government sticker, produced by the Public Service Office would henceforth be allowed to park within the secretariat.
 The directive entitled, “Improvement on security measures within and around the Lagos State Secretariat” was dated Wednesday, February 15.
