Good morning! Here is today’s summary from Nigerian Newspapers:

Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Zulum, has said that the explanation given to him by the military field commanders on the attack on his convoy and general security situation in Baga town was not acceptable to the government and people of the state.

2. The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has announced that worship centres in the state will reopen on Friday, August 7. Sanwo-Olu confirmed this during a media briefing on Saturday. While churches and mosques will be allowed to reopen, nightclubs will remain shut. The Governor also increased public gatherings’ capacity from 20 to 50 people.

6. No fewer than 42 appointees of Governor Godwin Obaseki have resigned their appointments from the service of the state. There are speculations that more will tender their resignation.
