The Lagos State Government says its final decision on the possibility of another lockdown will not be based solely on the outcome of the online public polls on the issue.
The state government, through three of its social media platforms, namely; Twitter: @followlasg, Facebook: Lagos State Government and Instagram: @lagosstategovt, on May 12, instituted a poll to determine the perspective of the public on the possibility of another lockdown of Lagos.
"Yes, we agree that the decision of the government on another statewide lockdown should not be solely based on the outcome of the polls, but criticisms that had trailed the issue will make the government feel the pulse of the masses being governed.
"As evident on the three social media platforms, some of the online users voted in favour of another lockdown while some voted against it and a few others remain neutral.
On social media influencers on the polls, Thorpe called for patience with the state government, assuring that whatever decision taken by the government would represent the views of the majority, especially the vulnerable.
