EndSARS Protest: Gbajabiamila Wants FG’s Intervention Fund To Rebuild Lagos.

The Speaker House of Representatives has disclosed that, Lagos will be rebuilt with all the resources at the disposal of the state government and other stakeholders.

He was quoted in a statement on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi while speaking at the inauguration of the Board of Trustees of the Rebuild Lagos Trust Fund.

He said that, he was heartbroken after going round the state for an on-the-spot assessment of the devastation that followed the #EndSARS unrest.

Gbajabiamila tasked Lagosians to put their heads and resources together to rebuild the state after the destruction of properties worth billions of naira.

“I believe more than ever before that saying, Eko o ni baje, and the quick reply is, O baje ti’.

“I believe in my heart, that this saying can never be truer than now, that Eko o ni baje, o de baje ti. (Never will Lagos go bad, never).

“We will rebuild this state with everything that we need, with all the tools at our disposal, we will rebuild Lagos. This is the time to prove it, that Eko o ni baje,” he said.

He said in rebuilding the state, there should be a public-private partnership, which he said would be one of the best ways to face the task.

“I think it goes beyond budget or appropriation. It will call for a special intervention from the Federal Government to make sure that monies are devoted, not just to Lagos, although Lagos bears the major devastation.

“So it’s going to be panoramic; it’s going to be for all the states, but we all know that Lagos bears the brunt of the devastation,” he said.

Gbajabiamila said the House is ready to support the interventions of the Federal Government to rebuild Lagos and other states worst hit by the recent EndSARS protests.
