Lagos armored personnel carrier opens fire as NDP demands Sanvo-Olu’s resignation
The Lagos branch of the All Progressive Congress responded after the People’s Democratic Party called for the resignation of Governor Babajide Sanvo Olu for the killings and violence in the state.
The NDP of Lagos, in a statement by its advertising secretary, Taofik Ghani, said the governor was stunned by the current problems facing the state and asked him to step down.
“This advice is good faith and meets the general interests of the state. If this condition continues to unravel over the next 72 hours, a state of emergency could be declared – a move that is likely to deprive everyone.
“The PDP is even more timely for the governor to take advice to step aside now that the Nigerian military has exposed him as the man who invited the soldiers to go and quell Lekki’s protests. Obviously, the Lagosians can no longer trust the governor, who denies his conspiratorial actions to the government, ”he said.
In response, Lagos APC, in a statement from its spokesman, Seye Oladejo, accused the NDP at the planning stage “of running Lagos State from the back door after a persistent refusal to vote remains a nightmare.”
APC’s PR secretary said: “The resignation call remains the desire of a disaffected opposition struggling with its ongoing collapse.
“The NDP in Lagos State, which suddenly revived last week, owes innocent members of the public a detailed explanation of its shameful and damning role in the chaos.
“Periodic lies about government in the state have fueled an unsuspecting public, fueling a fire of unprecedented violence that left behind pain, tears and blood.
“The sunshine killing of police officers and the destruction of several stations across the state is undoubtedly putting a strain on our security architecture, but the state government is working hard to provide temporary housing to prevent violations of law and order. We are convinced by the governor’s firm assurances that our losses will be recouped in the shortest possible time. ”
