Lagos Assembly urges state govt to compensate victims

The Lagos State house of assembly has urged the State Government to see that people who lost their loved ones as well as those whose properties and businesses were vandalised by some miscreants who hijacked the peaceful ENDSARS protest across the state are compensated.

This statement was made by the house during the 8th Constituency Stakeholders Town Hall Meeting held across all 40 local governments in the state.

Speaker of the House, Mr. Mudashiru Obasa while commending Nigerian youths for their resilience in the face of the changing socio-economic, assured that reports by the Ad-hoc committee set up by the House to investigate the level of damages will be relayed  to the state government with a view to preventing a recurrence of the mayhem.

Mr. Mudashiru Obasa said while the country is faced with COVID-19 pandemic, the civil unrest has unleased mayhem on the state by destroying the means of livelihood of citizens along with significant number of private and government properties.

“There is no gainsaying the fact that Nigeria and Lagos State in particular is currently facing three shocks of the pandemic including dwindling oil and tax revenue, contraction in global trade and economic recession

“These realities coupled with recent youth unrest are negatively impacting on the economy of the State, hence the need to rethink our revenue generation model as a top priority in order to keep the economy of the state afloat.

In his keynote address on the theme: “Post COVID-19 Pandemic: The Challenges and Prospects, the lawmaker representing Eti-Osa II, Mr. Gbolahan Yishawu, urged the citizens of Lagos State to support the government by performing their civic roles.

He said that, efforts by the government to ease the negative effect of the pandemic on the citizens can only be possible with the support of the citizens.
