Following the hijack of the #ENDSARS protests by criminals, who destroyed monuments and public assets, the Lagos State Government(LASG) has called for reconciliation among residents.
In an interview on Star 101.5 FM, the Deputy Governor, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat says that the intention of the initiators of the peaceful protests was genuine until it was hijacked by hoodlums who unleashed violence across Lagos and Nigeria.
“We have to be sincere. The genuine protesters were peaceful. They were demanding for something that we all can understand and the Governor and myself marched with them.”
The Deputy Governor maintained that despite the destruction of infrastructure in the state, Lagosians must come together as a united people to rebuild society.
Speaking further, Dr Hamzat says “We must dialogue with ourselves, we must intelligently sit down and decide the best way to move our State and Country forward.”
“Let’s all calm down; let’s all relax. Let’s not destroy businesses set up to employ our people. Those who have ideas should bring them up for discussion”.
