As protests spread in some parts of the Lagos state over the scarcity of Naria notes, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Friday appealed to Lagosians to avoid protests. He said the government is working to ease the sufferings precipitated by the rejection of old notes and the scarcity of new notes in the State.
Sanwo-Olu made this known in a statement released on Friday by Lagos state Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso.
He assured Lagosians, that the Lagos State Government understands their pain.
The Governor added;
“The protesters are said to be angry over the Naira redesign and its consequent scarcity that has caused so much hardship and confusion among our people. There is no need for violence as the Supreme Court is looking into this controversial matter and will make its position known on February 22. The government praises Lagosians for showing understanding, despite the pains that the Federal Government’s measures have brought. Residents should continue to be law-abiding by shunning any form of incitement by mischief makers.”
