Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has asked the National Assembly to make provision for funds in the 2021 budget, to support Lagos and other states where violence was recorded recently. He made the appeal yesterday at the Consultative Forum on Rebuilding Lagos held in Alausa, Ikeja.
He explained that following the violence recorded in the state, the government constituted, by executive order, the Lagos State Rebuild Trust Fund. The governor noted that as a follow-up, a bill will be sent to the State House of Assembly, to enshrine the Fund in the laws of the land, and give it the necessary backing to accomplish its mandate.
