Sanwo-Olu has ordered the closure of all markets in Lagos following the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus. He made this known during a live press briefing today the 24th of March, 2020.
He said, “It is not a total lock down, we still want people on essential services to go about their normal activities. “We are trying to de-centralise markets in Lagos. This is why we want to use some of our closed schools as markets, so people can buy food and medicine without going a long distance.
“It is only when you are alive that you can talk about economics and finance.”
