Let There Be An Immediate End To The Covid-19 Scam In Lagos State - Aac by sowore2019: 9:58pm On Apr 06, 2020

(Being a press statement of the African Action Congress, Lagos Branch)

The Lagos Branch of the African Action Congress (AAC) is appalled by the ongoing scam in the state which is being executed under the pretext of distributing relief materials to Lagosians.

We have reliably gathered that the Sanwo-Olu administration has been distributing relief materials meant for millions of Lagosians to members of the APC and their cronies in the State whilst several homes are facing untold hardship.

It is our contention that Lagos does not belong to APC alone, and so the politicisation of relief materials at a difficult time such as this is uncalled for, callous and totally unacceptable.

Since we uncovered the cruel politicisation of the relief materials, the Lagos State Government hastily began to distribute one derica of rice, N100 bread, street by street! Assuming without conceding that this last-minute desperation was sincere, how can a 21st century state reduce itself to such embarrassment and utter derision? This show of cruel, crass, and crude undermining of the people tells the kind of party APC is as well as the kind of governor Sanwo-Olu is! We must be ready to stand up against these anti-people elements.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is on record that Lagos has benefited from the ongoing donations than any other state in Nigeria, yet the disbursement of these funds to contain the pandemic has largely remained shady.

Whilst our party is in total support of the fight to permanently eradicate Coronavirus from Nigeria, we believe that this can only be effective if citizens are not locked up in their houses to be left at the mercy of hunger. In light Governor Sanwo-Olu’s plan to extend the ongoing lockdown, we have not gotten an explanation on how he intends to care for Lagosians, especially those who depend on daily struggles for survival.

If the lockdown is eventually extended, and appropriate measures are not put in place to transparently care for the people, the government will be committing genocide by fighting one deadly virus and enabling a deadlier one in the process.
