Olubankole Wellington, also known as Banky W, has reacted to the Lagos State Government’s intention to begin toll collecting at the Lekki Tollgate on April 1.
The ‘Selense’ singer took to Twitter to say that the government’s action demonstrates a fundamental lack of humanity.
According to him, the timing is also inequitable because many Lagosians are barely surviving due to current hardships.
Recall that the Toll Gate was shut down following the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020, and has been closed since then.
“The intended resumption of collections at the Lekki toll gate is yet another example of a serious lack of empathy by the Lagos State Govt. Life in Nigeria has been extremely difficult. All things being considered, the timing of this decision is just unfair.
Lagos State is exhibiting a blatant disregard – not just for the pain felt by all the young people who were hurt by the events of #EndSARS, but also the pain and difficulty being experienced by the majority of Lagosians just trying to survive in these difficult times.”
