By Centus Nweze
It may take over 10 years for Lagos to recover from the damages brought about by last year’s #EndSARS protests, Babajide Sanwoolu, the state governor, laments.
The governor made this claim in Abuja to newsmen at the presidential Villa where he came on official visit to see President Mohammdu Buhari.
Sanwolu said gradually, the state has started offering assistance to most of the businesses that were affected to enable them bounce back.
“It it also some of the things I discussed with Mr President. Its work in progress. To take something down it takes one day, to rebuild it take 10 years.
“It’s a journey, not a destination. And so its going to take a while.
“We are carefully taking a proper study to know what we need to do, taking our time to get it right but we’ve started something.
“Businesses that were affected, some businesses that were affected, somebody having their shops looted or burnt or something.
“We’ve been able to directly begin to support such businesses, especially on a micro, small level using the Lagos state employment trust fund,” he said.
