Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the State Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, have initiated the move on rebuilding Lagos projects in the aftermath of EndSARS’ destruction of infrastructure across the state.

The personalities made the move at the 16th Edition of the Lagos Executive/Legislative Parley held at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Friday.

The annual parley was themed ‘A Consensus Agenda for Rebuilding Lagos’.

The #EndSARS protest which was subsequently hijacked by hoodlums witnessed colossal destruction of public and private properties in the state, estimated to cost the sum of N1.1 trillion.

Speaking, Sanwo-Olu said, “Lagos is rebuilding stronger; to rebuild Lagos is to rebuild ourselves; to rebuild Lagos is to rebuild our infrastructure.

“The parley provide us with the opportunity to set the agenda for the future of the state. It is to sustain our Lagos and put it on a pedestal of growth in the next 10-30 years to come.

“As the epicentre of the pandemic in Nigeria, Lagos was not left out of the lockdowns. This as you all know has adversely affected the socio-economic life of our people and slowed down our efforts at infrastructural development and poverty alleviation.

“As if that was not bad enough, the #EndSARS protest reared its head, culminating in a grounding of social and economic activities, as well as unimaginable destruction of both public infrastructure and private properties.

On the proposed and long-awaited Fourth Mainland Bridge, the governor said, “We did not promise 4th Mainland Bridge as part of campaign promises but we will build 4th Mainland Bridge. We shall lay the foundation before the end of the year.”

On his part, Gbajabiamila said, “We need unity across arms of government. This unity does not mean one arm subservient to the other. Nation-building is a joint task.”

He added further that every stakeholder must strive to ensure that the electoral promises are delivered to the people.

Harping on the theme, Gbajabiamila said, “Rebuilding is remodelling the way we do things; remodelling our values; remodelling is a continuous process.”

In his address, Obasa enjoined the organizers to sustain the annual programme, saying there was a need to engage policymakers and interact.

He advised that the engagement should not be limited to public officers, adding the civil societies and the youths have a critical role to play.

Other dignitaries at the event include Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Kadiri, members of the State Executive Council, members of the state House of Assembly, chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC, led by its chairman in the stare, Alhaji Tunde Balogun, among others.
