#ENDSARS protest: Senate solicits special fund for Lagos, others

by Kunle Awosiyan

The Senate has called on the Federal Government to render a Special Economic Assistance to Lagos and other states most affected by the wanton destruction and vandalism recorded during the #EndSARS protests in the country

It, therefore, wants the Federal Government to set aside one percent of all revenues collected as Value Added Tax (VAT) for the purpose.

The suggestion followed the consideration of two motions sponsored by Senators Biodun Olujimi and Gershom Bassey

The Senate also seeks compensation and assistance to victims of hoodlums and banditry in all parts of the country
