“This decision is not cast in stone and is subject to review of our ongoing modelling and what procedure comes out from the Ministry of Health,” Sanwo-Olu said.
In a statement by the Governor, he stated that the decision was based on indications that the pandemic has peaked in the state, as the number of new cases continues to steadily decline.
