It was gathered that selected members of the Senate and House of representatives who were present at the meeting include, the Senate president, Ahmad Lawan; deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Ahmed Idris Wase among others.

In another report, 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.
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.
