- The Lagos state chapter of the PDP has advised Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to vacate office
- The party faulted the governor’s handling of the recent protests in the state
- However, the APC has dismissed the call for Sanwo-Olu’s resignation
The Lagos state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to resign over his handling of the insecurity situation in the state following the EndSARS protest.
According to Vanguard, the PDP in a statement by its spokesperson, Taofik Gani on Sunday, November 1, said the governor seemed to have been overwhelmed by the current challenges facing the state.
The party asked the governor to vacate office now that the Nigerian Army has revealed that he was the one who invited the soldiers to quell the Lekki protests.
The PDP claimed that Sanwo-Olu has lost the trust of Lagos residents for reportedly denying his own actions.
The party called on the governor to admit his fault and honourably resign from office.
However, the Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has faulted PDP’s call for Sanwo-Olu’s resignation.
The APC described the call by the PDP on Sanwo-Olu to resign as unwarranted.
Meanwhile, the Lagos state government has lifted the curfew imposed on the state following violence by hoodlums who hijacked a peaceful protest against police brutality.
The state government announced the lifting of the curfew late on Saturday, October 31.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu's aide, Gboyega Akosile, first tweeted the development on Saturday before the state government confirmed it on its official Twitter handle.
In another report, the federal government has been urged to give an urgent grant to Lagos state government over the destruction wrecked by hoodlums who hijacked the EndSARS protest.
The call was made by Senator Solomon Adeola, a lawmaker from Lagos state.
He said the grant will enable the Lagos state government to rebuild and replace destroyed public facilities during the violence.
