The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has announced the setting up of a joint working committee to resolve issues surrounding the recent demolition of properties in some markets in the state, especially the Alaba International Market.
He made this known while speaking to the press after a meeting with Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Ben Kalu and some Igbo market leaders in Lagos on Friday.
Some individuals and groups have raised concerns following the recent demolitions in Alaba International Market, Lagos, with some accusing the state government of targeting people from a section of the country.
However, Sanwo-Olu said that some of the misconceptions surrounding the actions of the government have been cleared in the meeting, adding that the committee will go round to verify things and put out information to correct “negative media reviews”
