The governor of Lagos state Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the Consultative Forum On Rebuilding Lagos held in Alahausa Ikeja on Monday urged the National Assembly to set funds aside in the 2021 budget to assist Lagos and other states struck with violence recently.
These were his words: “I would like to appeal to the National Assembly to take steps to set aside funds for this task of Rebuilding and Restoring Lagos in the 2021 Appropriation Bill being deliberated upon currently by the Assembly.
“This Fund does not necessarily have to be for Lagos alone, it can and should also take into consideration other states also impacted by the recent spate of violence,” Governor Sanwo-Olu pleaded.
“We seek to restore the infrastructure that was destroyed, to revive the energy and confidence of everyone who has been affected by these losses, to help restore the confidence of the people of Lagos in the infinite potentials of Lagos.
“But the state government cannot do this alone. We need all the help that we can get, which is why we have invited you all here, and are grateful that you have honored our invitation,”
Governor Sanwo-Olu told the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and lawmakers present at the event…
“We require the assistance of the Federal Government, from both the Executive and Legislative branches,” he added.
