Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Wednesday signed an executive order for the rebuilding of the state as a result of the massive destruction inflicted by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protests.

Sanwo-Olu also constituted the Lagos State Rebuilding Trust Fund to oversee the rebuilding of every aspect of the state and also look at the future and healing of wounds.

Sanwo-Olu, while briefing the press on “Rebuilding Lagos,” at the State House, Alausa, Ikeja, said the committee, which will be headed by Yemi Cardoso, will be responsible for the reconstruction of the state.

Sanwo-Olu also constituted an 8-member Board for the new Lagos State Rebuilding Trust Fund Committee (LRTFC).

The committee, whose membership cuts across the private and public sectors as well as international bodies who had offered to assist in rebuilding the state, according to him, will not only oversee the rebuilding of every aspect of the state but also look at the future of the state and see to the healing of wounds.

The 8-member board will be chaired by Mr Yemi Cardoso, while other members are: Prof Kanyisola Ajayi, Mr Gbenga Agboola, Mrs Bola Adesola, Mr Sam Egube, Engr. Jimi Hotonu, Mr Abubakar Suleiman and a member of an international donor agency.

Governor Sanwo-Olu also announced the setting up six other committees to assist in quick recovery from the present situation.

They include; Business Continuity Committee, Assessment Committee, Planning Committee, Execution, Measurement and Evaluation Committee, Security and Enforcement Committee and Communication and Community Engagement Committee.

Governor Sanwo-Olu said though a Bill on LRTFC will be presented to the House of Assembly in few days’ time for passage into law, he had to issue an executive order and set up the committee on rebuilding the state because of the deluge of offer of assistance both locally and internationally.
