The Ikale Heritage Development, IHDA has commiserated with the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and National leader of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over the wanton destructions in Lagos State during the EndSARS protests.
In a message signed by the Chairman of the Heritage, Otunba Sola Olatunji, the EndSARS destruction of both public and private properties in Lagos is a huge setback to the economy of the state.
Olajunji said in the message: “The Ikale Heritage Development Association shares the pains and griefs of Lagosians over the EndSARS wanton destruction in Lagos State. We condole with the government and Lagosians over the unwarranted death and monumental destructions of government and private assets during the peaceful protests which were hijacked by miscreants and hoodlums.
“No doubt, the wreckage was massive, coming at a time when Lagosians and Nigerians were just coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic which has already crippled the global economy – Nigeria and Lagos inclusive.
“We condole with the Governor with his team over the carnage and commend the resilience he puts up during the crisis and the strategy adopted to bring down the tensions in the State. Mr governor, God will continue to give you the enablement to rebuild Lagos.”
Also commenting on the destruction of the Television Continental, TVC, and The Nation Newspaper owned by Asiwaju Tinubu, Olatunji said the country needs to do something urgently about fake news as the APC leader has done nothing wrong to warrant such treatment.
“We again condone with our Leader and father of Progressives politics and democracy in modern Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over the destruction of his private investments and the trauma he went through in the hands of fake news promoters who were hell bent to take over Lagos through the back doors,” he said in the message.
“Our dear Asiwaju, continue with your good works as nothing can change your date with history and destiny in 2023.”
According to the governor of Lagos State, destructions in the state which includes BRT Terminus in Oyigbo, BRT buses, police station, Oba of Lagos Palace and many more will cost the state billions of Naira to put back.
