Queens Park popular event center closes in Lagos, license revoked
The Lagos State government, through the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, revoked the Queen’s Park Event Center Oniru license for violating state COVID-19 protocols.
Tourism Commissioner. Uzamat Akinbile Yusuf, who confirmed the seal, added that the step to revoke the license was taken in the best interests of the state.
So he pleaded with other event centers and venue owners to abide by government orders or they risk losing their chances of doing business in Lagos.
Akinbile Yussuf reiterated that the fight against the virus can only be successful “if we all follow established public health and safety protocols.”
The director general of the Lagos State Security Commission, Lanre Mohola, also said that such measures arose after an event that occurred at the headquarters on December 26, 2020 and contradicted all security protocols established by the state.
The CEO also warned all other event centers and facility owners who violate state security protocols to immediately abandon or risk sanctions, stressing that “this is not normal. Thus, they must comply with state protocols, otherwise there is a risk of losing a license to work in the state. “
He also said that the commission initiated a lawsuit against some rebellious business owners who removed the state seal and continued to work.
Mohola stressed that the state supports zero tolerance for those who do not follow the rules, arguing that people should take responsibility.
He urged residents to work with the government to effectively reduce the spread of the virus, which is still destroying the world and the state in particular.
