#EndSARS: Reconstruction of destroyed facilities in Lagos to gulp N1tn
NEWSMAN, Ikeja – Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has disclosed that Lagos state government would need One Trillion Naira (N1tn) to reconstruct damaged facilities following destructions caused by hoodlums who hijacked the #EndSARS protests.
Gbajabiamila who spoke while fielding questions from State
House correspondents after a tour of some of the destroyed assets in Lagos said
“the House of Representatives will do all it can to compensate all those who
suffered brutality, including policemen that lost their lives in the process”.
“However, we want to know what exactly happened at the Lekki Toll Gate. The judicial panel must reveal this. However, I want to encourage Nigerians to allow peace to reign.
“I learnt from the governor of Lagos State that it will take N1trn to rebuild what had been lost and asked him what’s the budget size of the state, he said about N1trn. You can see we are moving backward. Hence, we must consider the consequences of our actions before embarking on any venture”, Gbajabiamaila said.
He therefore appealed to youths to allow peace reign henceforth, saying he still believes in the unity of Nigeria.
