When the leaders at the apex fail , it’s up to a few selected well- thinking subordinate leaders to oppose absurd and selfish directives. We all shall not perish, kudos jidesanwoolu Mad governor, you have nothing to offer for this four years.... Johndfocus Very good decision. We all return to church now and start hugging one another, speaking tongues into each other's faces and singing and dancing like God was on holiday all along. Worship him everyday wherever you find yourself!

We have two FG in Nigeria. One in Abuja and another in Lagos. Where can social distancing be really practised; religion houses or market places? Which entrance door is wider: BRT buses or religion houses? Which has bigger space to maintain social distancing; public buses or religion house? Even restaurant is spacious to maintain social dist
JUST REMEMBER, GOD WILL JUDGE BY YOUR WORDS It shows how religion has eaten deep into our system and brain in Nigeria after seeing people condemning the governor for keeping churches and mosques closed whilst, leaving the market open.Una no kuku die when churches and mosques no open for like 3months now.Misplaced priority
If reopen. Lagos will be big wahala Some turns there place of worship to something else,I believe Almighty is everywhere, anytime u called upon him he definitely answered ur hearts matters Better Sanwo, it's good to challenge ur maker, just wait for d result soon. U open Ladipo market where u make so much money abi, just wait.
jidesanwoolu , closing the churches and mosques is not the right way . the market etc are open with no social distance, why church and mosque? You can give a good guidelines like 2hrs service and not more than 100 per service . it is well cos this pandemic will end soon. God is angry with the wicked. End time is near

Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to the police station to complain. Nonsense and Covidiots Well, I believed dat we don't have Governor in Lagos state only CLASS CAPTAIN is what we have. U open market place, like mail 12, Oshodi arena market, Adeniji Adele, Adekunle where open. U give D most highly populated places pamision to function, can't we see there's a problem

ZaAlgedonicOne_ this tweet is making me laugh 😂😂 God bless you uncle Sanwo. Wisdom and knowledge is yours. Someone who is at the forefront understand better unlike someone getting reported speech. You all need to understand Church is not the building. And stop why-ing in here True God ans prayers from the heart no matter where you prayed from. Truth be told, some people's bread and butter come from the church, continuously locking it up,..... I can only imagine
Hypocrite!! This same man was bullied by the operators of PrimeroTSL BRT and now they increased bus fares and even pack 42 people inside their buses...Social distancing? Keep massaging his ego.... Transportation in Lagos state is a major concern for Us. BOGbadamosi Fantastic decision. God is everywhere. Churches and mosques are just mere building. As long as schools are closed churches and mosques too should remain close.
Sanwo!!! SanSense!!! Of Lagos!!! jidesanwoolu Gbayii baami!!!!! When the time comes for you to answer questions from God make sure you have this your nose mask on ...... iam_bamidele1 hi What do you expect? When the governor claimed a test cost 50,000. You all will be surprised soon that cases recorded daily in Lagos would soon skyrocket for them to earmark their target amount of embezzlement.
Give this man a chilled beer. A real leader I Stan Better open churches now or pastor Chris and Pastor oyedepo would come up with another conspiracy theories that would blow our heads off.. Chai..who do you.. seriously... locking up churches and mosques even schools till when...over a man-made pandemic...oya let's be watching
Small power wey u get u Don dey do pass urself Thank God winners chapel is in ogun state If this is true, Sanwo Olu is a coward! Well done sir.Nice one God would punish you. For closing the churches it seems now have two president in Nigeria 1, President Buhari 2, President Sanwolu this two super powers will be delegating different law with each other.... and now it seems President Sanwolu is the oga kpata kpata of them all, anything he says it final.

Not slowing still God has given you another opportunity to have sense Still forming proactive. Kano relaxed religious restrictions peep the drastic drop. Antichrist Governor.
since we've been home.. Ain't d numbers increasing? So Mr governor , let places of worship OPEN.... Haba fa, you guys can agree to open the international and local airport but can't open worship centres? Really? Are you guys kidding me right now? 🤦♀ End time people love darkness more than light bcos their deed are evil, Note:- The gate of hell cannot prevail against the church.
Very good move. A wise man once said..... Thank you o another sensible call Seriously very good Mr_JAGss is this news real? I hardly believe stories...I couldn't find something related on your TL. We are the representative and representation of God. To think I’ve invited a newly found catch to church this Sunday 😭😫 I only wanted to win his soul😕
Very good decision Mr Governor. We dey your back. I saw it coming You are the man of the moment. Kindly guide the FG, it seems they are lost. Correct Governor. A leader who is walking the walk. Serving his people. Doesn't matter, church is just a mere building but the real church is your heart Your own don dey too much ooo Egbon🙄🙄🙄
Awwww,and I was looking forward to going to church again,it is well tho. All things worketh together for our good. Good Those that were prepared for show off are so mad about this. 🤣🤣🤣 🙆🙆🙆🙆 I'm so happy. I'm already used to this home-service thing Your Excellency sir, I think you r missing it here Sir. People can go to market where their is no social distance at all and we are comfortable about it, now we can go to place of worship where we can join our voices together and combat this virus together. Sir let us be care ful
Ban4Life 🔊🔊🔊 Good... It is the best decision for now God bless u sir.. na me happy pass Oga governor sanwolu.... Pls till nxt Yr to reopen dem Dont really see this as a bad thing tho But offices shaa don open fully,, Guys stay in your hus and pray to God God knows all our heart ,, Very smart move assuming the churches and mosques were allowed to reopen The credibility and transparency of this Lagos State government would have been questioned , nice order of priorities If you want to reopen anything next let it be schools Eko o ni baje oooo
Bro olu did not try oo😔😔 People's saying not to open church or mosques are not workers or instrumentalist, they are just chair warmer in there various churches , bcos i believe if you are ones of the instrumentalist and you enjoy using ur talent to praise God , u will nt be happy with the decision Better o
Very good decision As it should be... Very good decision Case closed Meanwhile the church is more organised than the market place... Ignorance! Great!!!! IF THE TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF CHURCHES OR MOSQUES AFFECTS YOUR FAITH OR STAND WITH GOD, THEN YOU NEED TO RETHINK ABOUT YOUR CONVICTION IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Good That's my Governor talking. You are such a good leader Use this opportunity to raise alter for God in ur home and u will never regrets it NASO_E_BI We move. Sounds interesting Iberiberism of the highest order. That's the problem with Nigeria, once they join the bandwagon of Negativity, the madness no dey end: (1) Corruption, inconclusive; (2) Jos Crisis, inconclusive; (3) Boko Haram, inconclusive; (4) Fulani Terrorism, inconclusive; (5) COVID-19 Lockdown, inconclusive.
Somebody should tell BOS, jidesanwoolu that BRT buses are no longer complying with the state regulations on passengers social distance spacing in thier buses. Meanwhile tickets are now 200% hiked. Over two weeks now. Good one my governor may God continue to bless you Some people were already jubilating that they will cash out by Sunday. Mr. Governor why now🙄
Egbekegbe leadership,people can go to malls and markets without social distance and precautions but people can't go to church with moderate population, how best can you describe hypocrisy,cluelessness and confusion.Suffering people with fake Covid-19 figures exposes ur wickedness Opened or closed, Jesus still remains my LORD and SAVIOUR!!!
Choir Master. Pls endure a little while ok. Make I go collect my Agbada back from the dry cleaner. On point 👍 Nice one. Religion has been our problem in Nigeria so need for them to operate. Well done Sanwó Olú Very good decision. The numbers are spiking in Lagos yet people want to die on the altar of religion. Religion is not a necessity like business or commerce. Pray at home
ogundamisi Double standards Good decision. Soundsicario Now that's a man with a clue! Now that churches and mosque will not be opening in Lagos I just hope the woke twitter won’t continue dragging GOD on twitter. As they should Wise decision 👏 Nice one. We must do what's best to Flatten the curve! jidesanwoolu nice move. Ignore stories if truly the numbers are sincere
abdulazeeztuyor Ooin. You're doing well sir. Beautiful. As a matter of fact, when FG give a green light to economic and other activities to reopening, Lagos should be excluded. The state is not slowing down at all. Exifam Smart move sir. Why You can open balogun market and computer village but can’t open churches , these people don’t know what they are doing!!, The most clueless government.

Para mood Way to go jidesanwoolu Wahala Great decision Gov. Sanwo-Olu. Ogun State need to toe same path given the close proximity between both States and the presence of several churches/campgrounds in Ogun State with majority of attendees being Lagos residents. Wagbayi👍👍👍 Mr Governor if you can’t open church and mosque but you open other sectors like Banks, even market that social distancing is not observed then I feel something is wrong somewhere..jidesanwoolu
Why Perfecto I am not surprised at all. They're working for their father against the church. Over 100k Americans have died so far, but Trump opened the church, and Lagos has become something else. Let's watch Lagos turn into whatever they so wish. shey_drogo Thank you sir 🤝 mister_vaughan_ See me getting hyped for Sunday service already 😭😭😭
MoniOsibodu God bless you Governor Sanwolu May God protect us from VIRUS that can spread in the church & MOSQUE but not in banks, markets, supermarket etc. All thru the period in view I never heard of a place where the people tackled the govt to lift the ban on religious activities, only in Nigeria... people were rather thinking of how to go back to work. But here no work, only places of worship. Madness!
What's wrong with these man? This is one of d Best Decisions d Governor of Lagos State has taken! In fact, declare a State wide Curfew least for 15 Working Days 2 enable Health Workers Combat this Useless, but Killer Virus COVID-19 4rm China, as well as Mitigate its spread! Abbah! Let us flatten the Curve!
🤕🤕🙊 Good one, everything we can do to stop the spread is welcomed. Good decision. thatpoetclem Yes yes yes. They should remain closed..they've done more harm than good! A governor that prioritizes the lives of people. Good job. My guys were already happy, cause they are in media section LMAO This is reasonable because Lagos has the highest number of cases. However, I heard they are preparing to open the economy, that would be dangerous I think...
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 how them day take spell elaaa I want to go to kogi or Ogun state.. what is wrong with sonwo olu.. Med oh! Thank you. Man like sanwo olu 🙌🙌🙌 Nice one followlasg If religious organizations are not ready to comply with CODVID regulations. Good one sanwo eko..... LagosIsWorking T_WAYNE100 Correct man
