The Lagos State Safety Commission has reiterated that application for its Register To Open exercise for hotels, clubs and event centres is totally free.
In a statement signed by the Director-General of the safety commission, Mr. Lanre Mojola, it read: “The attention of the Lagos State Safety Commission has been drawn to a message making the rounds to the effect that hotel and restaurant owners are required to pay various sums of money to enable them reopen for business.”
“We state categorically that the malicious message did not originate from the Safety Commission neither was any person or group of persons authorized to send that message on behalf of the Commission.”
“For purpose of clarity, it is again reiterated that the Register to Open exercise is absolutely free. No business owners, including hoteliers, restaurants, club owners etc. should pay to anybody for that purpose.”
The commission had recently stated that business owners put in their application on time to avoid last minute rush and give time for the process.Follow us on social media
