Weddings Must Not Exceed 300 People - Lagos State Safety Commission.

Lagos State Safety Commission has stated clearly that, couples who intend to get married, should not have more than 300 guest in the occasion due to the rising covid 19 cases in the state.

Mojola said that they are only concerned with big weddings and big gatherings.


It read; 

“Weddings and social gatherings must not exceed 300 people with prior clearance from the Lagos State Safety Commission."

Director-General of the Lagos State Safety Commission, Lanre Mojola who confirmed this in an interview with Punch, said the state government is concerned about large gatherings and big weddings as the state experiences a spike in the number of Covid-19 cases.

He added that the clearance is free and prospective couples will have to go on the Commission’s website to input the details of their weddings. Mojola also revealed that safety marshals will be deployed to such events to enforce all COVID-19 protocols to prevent any possible spread of the virus.


Mojola said; 

“If it is not a big wedding, maybe 50 people, 100 people, we are not really in whatsoever.

“The process is not difficult, you go online and input the details of the wedding. There might be a requirement to have safety marshals on ground, depending on the size of the wedding.

“The move is to put in place some control measures to prevent super-spreader weddings and hold people accountable. It also helps us in planning. For instance, if we are envisaging 500 guests at a wedding, there will be more attention on them. We will do our regular patrols and visit such places to ensure that they comply with safety protocols.”
