Banky W: Resumption of collections at the Lekki toll gate shows lack of empathy by LASG


Nigerian singer and actor, Olubankole Wellington, well known as Banky W, has criticized the Lagos State Government for the reopening of the Lekki toll gate which has been closed due to the likely shooting of unarmed protesters by men of the Nigerian Army during the October 2020 #EndSARS protests.

On Monday, LCC had  announced that the tolling activities will resume at the gate next month.

Banky W tweeted, “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.

“The government was “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.”
