Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State governor, earlier said that the state is moving to fully reopen its economy and this will be done through the “Register-to-open” initiative.
Mr Sanwo-Olu said government agencies including the Lagos State Safety Commission (LSSC) and the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) would assess the level of readiness of businesses and duly register them before they are allowed to operate. “In the coming days, we will be starting what we call Register-to-Open, which means all players in the restaurant business, event centres, entertainment, malls and cinemas will go through a form of re-registration and space management. “There is a regulation that will be introduced to supervise this move. “We will be coming to their facilities to assess their level of readiness for a future opening, ” Mr Sanwo-Olu said.
Following the directive of the state governor, the safety commission said on Wednesday that it has started the e-registration in view of the Register-To-Open initiative of the Lagos State Government, targeted at gradual reopening of the economy amidst the pandemic.
Businesses that can go through the re-registration procedure include religious centres, event centres, bars, night clubs, cinemas, spas, gyms, and restaurants.
