In an interview on the 23rd of October, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat stated that the genuine protesters were peaceful and demanding for something everyone can understand.
He therefore called for a reconciliation amongst residents.
“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.”
“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.”
