"Lagos State Needs N1Trillion for Reconstruction" - Femi Gbajabiamila

Femi Gbajabiamila on Sunday 25th October 2020 While on an assessment visit to the Lagos State Governor visited some torched and destroyed areas of the state made the announcement that the state will need a total of One Trillion Naira for reconstruction from damages.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, also has revealed that Lagos state will need the money to restore the operation of the properties which were destroyed in the state after hoodlums hijacked the peaceful EndSARS protest.

In his words, “We stand in solidarity with Lagos state government and the people of the state This is indeed a difficult period. This is not Lagos of our dream. Its indeed very sad. 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". Also he commended the act of the youths who stood for their right, in his words, he said they have fought a good fight and the National Assembly and government have listened. What has happened has happened, however, we want to know what exactly happened at the Lekki Toll Gate. The judicial panel must reveal this. I want to encourage Nigerians to allow peace to reign.

The issue of confusion came up when he said he learnt from the Lagos Governor that it will take that amount to rebuild. According to him, “I learnt from the governor of Lagos State that it will take N1 Trillion to rebuild what had been lost and asked him what’s the budget size of the state he said about N1,Trillion. Now the people do not know if it was the decision of the NASS OR the demands of the state governor.
