Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, revealed this to State House journalists during a virtual National Economic Council (NEC) meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Sanwo-Olu stated that Osinbajo told him that the NEC would hold an emergency meeting on the revival of COVID-19 if the necessity arises.
“The chairman of the council (Osinbajo) mentioned to us that if there is a need for an emergency meeting, he will call one.”
