The Lagos State Government has been closely monitoring the protests that took place in different state regions this morning.
The devaluation of the naira, as well as the consequent scarcity that has caused so much hardship and misunderstanding among our people, is said to be the source of the demonstrators’ rage.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says there is no need for violence because the Supreme Court is investigating the case and will issue its decision on February 22.
Lagos State has since joined the legal issue, all in the interest of our people, believing that the highest court in the land has the authority to rule on the case.
The fuel situation is dire.
The government praises Lagosians for showing understanding, despite the pains that the Federal Government’s measures have brought. Residents should continue to be law-abiding by shunning any form of incitement by mischief makers.
Mr. Governor is working with his colleagues to ensure that this hardship does not go on.
