The Deputy Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Wasiu Esinlokun-Sanni, has condemned the destruction of lives and property in Lagos Island and other states economy.
Esinlokun-Sanni, decried that the hoodlums did not only desecrated the judiciary by burning the Igbosere High Court and Magistrates, (the former, which was the oldest court in the country), but also carried out disrespectful attack on the palace of the Oba of Lagos, as well as secretariats of the local governments.
The Lagos Island Lawmaker noted this during a Constituency Stakeholders Meeting, he hosted at the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Hall, Adeniyi Adele, as held across all the 40 constituencies in the state, with the theme, Post COVID-19 Pandemic, The Challenges and Prospects.
According to the Deputy Speaker, the states economy had been under severe strain from the impact of the COVID-19, which led the government to adjust the current budget in line with the dictates of the vicious pandemic.
Eshinlokun-Sanni, who decried that the state was just getting out of the pandemic, when it was again visited by a violence that set it back by about a trillion naira by the government estimate, noted that it would be outrageous of anyone, to doubt the existence of COVID-19 as it has suffered the most devastating attack that cuts across all strata of the society.
Announcing a N6 million scholarship for 60 indigent students of higher institutions of Lagos Island descent, the DS assured that the Cheque presentation to beneficiary-students would held in the first week of November.
The Constituents, who made demands and inputs into the quality of representation by the lawmaker at the legislative chamber, charged the Lawmaker to continue to offer quality representation.
They called for more robust proactive security that would sanitize the entire Lagos Island and mop up miscreants and hoodlums tarnishing the image of Lagos Island.
Among the Stakeholders presented at the Meeting were the Vice Chairman of Lagos Island Local Government, Wadud Bashorun.
Bashorun urged the state government to storm all the dark spots in Lagos Island, insisting that no respite would come to the Lagos Island until miscreants and hoodlums are weeded out.
