#EndSARS: Sanwo-Olu Opens Trust Fund to Rebuild Vandalised Property
Nwolu Obiajulu

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has opened a Trust Fund for the rebuilding of public infrastructure that was vandalised during the violence that followed the #EndSARS protest in the state.

The governor who made this known on Wednesday said the state had received offers from foreign bodies to reconstruct the affected property.

“Instead of wallowing in our pain, we have chosen to positively move forward. We will embrace new standards of governance; we will build stronger partnerships, stronger people, stronger institutions, and a stronger state.

“In the last few weeks, we have been inundated with local and global offers of assistance to rebuild our state and recover all we lost to arson and violence in October. It is obvious that we can no longer wait to begin the onerous task of reconstructing Lagos State. In the next few days, our government will send a bill to the Lagos State House of Assembly for the establishment of a trust fund to rebuild Lagos.

“However, with the deluge of offers of immediate help and assistance that we have received locally and internationally, we can no longer wait until the bill is passed. It is expedient that our enumeration, recovery, and rebuilding efforts start as soon as possible,” Sanwo-Olu said.

According to the governor, the trust fund committee would be tasked with getting the detailed cost of rebuilding the vandalized property, identification of the state’s most critical needs, and other pertinent needs.

He added that the committee will cease to exist when the bill became law, while its mandates would be handed over to a newly established trust fund.
