Group Dares Lagos Protesters – Says , Protest In Lekki And Get Kicked

Published

on

Akèté Legacy Group (ALEG) has taken action prior to the notice of protest by some unknown persons staged to happen again at the Lekki tollgate on the 13th February, 2021, to counter to judicial panel’s decision on the reopening of the Lekki plaza.

A communique duly signed by them goes thus:

We have received the notice of a planned public protest by some groups of people, which is slated to hold on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at the Lekki Toll Plaza. According to information going round, some groups of persons are planning to re-enact the unruly method of public demonstration employed by some youths in the last October protest against SARS brutality.

The social media, in the last few days, has been awash with the details of the protest, while the organisers have been talking to some youths to gather support for the planned action.

The rationale for the protest is not clear to us and to every law-abiding citizens of Lagos.

Instructively however, we observed the notice of protest was issued almost immediately after the Judicial Panel of Inquiry, raised by the Government of Lagos State to probe human rights abuses and action of the military in the infamous October 20, 2020 incidents, issued a re-possession order to Lekki Concession Company (LCC) to resume tolling operations at the toll plaza.

We strongly believe the timing of the planned protest is not coincidental, but deliberate and confrontational. It is an attempt to push Lagos to the edge on destruction once again. This informed our emergency meeting held at Campos Mini-stadium on Monday, where we deliberated on the issues. We wish to communicate our stand.

We resolved as follows:

• As a law-abiding socio-cultural organisation that unshakably stands for the peace and progress of our dear state of origin, we have widely dissected the possible grievances of those attempting to embark on another round of protest and we believe their complaints are what the courts of the land can entertain and adjudicate on. The Judicial Panel, which gave the re-possession order to LCC, subjected its decision to a vote, and the verdict came 5-4 in support of the order. If the panel’s decision did not go down well with anyone, we advise them to approach the court, not blocking the highway in protest.

• We make passionate appeal to the organisers of the protest to shelve the planned action, as it is needless in this period. Peace in Lagos is still fragile, months after the bloody End SARS violence.

• Lagos is yet to recover from the monumental loss it suffered last October when the End SARS protests degenerated to violence. Rampaging arsonists who burnt down our state did not spare our cherished cultural heritage and centuries-old legacy inheritance. Lagos has not come back on its feet; organising similar protest in such unruly fashion at Lekki tollgate or anywhere for that matter within our state will not be tolerated this time.

• The Commissioner of Police and other police formations must be alive to their responsibility and protect our state from those bent on bringing it down.

• In the event that security agencies fail to nip the protest in the board, we will be forced to march to the Lekki Toll Plaza on February 13, 2021 and halt the needless protest. Those planning the protest must not test our resolve.

Tinubu Peter Obi

The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has listed conditions his counterpart from the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, must meet before engaging in a debate with him.

Tinubu said he would engage Obi in a debate after he released his manifesto for Nigerians to scrutinize.

Speaking through the spokesman of his campaign team, Festus Keyamo, Tinubu said Obi should also list his achievements during his tenure as governor of Anambra State before any debate can hold.

Keyamo said Obi should name any political party he formed.

He said Obi should disclose those he had mentored in politics who are still with him before asking for a debate.

“Before Obi can stand shoulder to shoulder with Asiwaju to debate, he should first release a manifesto for scrutiny; then he should list his tangible achievements as Governor of Anambra State compared to the tangible achievements of Asiwaju as Governor of Lagos State.

“Then he should list those he has mentored in politics from the days of his being Governor who is still with him now; then he should tell us any political party he has either formed or partnered to form and which he still belongs to today.”

Okocha

Nigerian legend, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, has hailed the Teranga Lions of Senegal for their ‘heart’.

According to Okocha, Aliou Cissé’s side are fearless, and believe they can beat any team at the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Senegal booked their place in the World Cup Round of 16 on Tuesday night after beating Ecuador 2-1.

The AFCON champions will face England in the knockout stage this weekend.

Speaking on SuperSport, Okocha said,

“One good thing that this Senegalese team has got right from years back is heart. They are fearless and they believe they can beat anybody.

“Also, the character of their manager has been passed on to this team. I managed to play with him, he was not the most brilliant player, but he had heart.

“You can see from this Senegalese team that what they’ve going for them now is team spirit because they’re missing crucial individual players like [Sadio] Mane, who finished second in the Ballon d’Or.”

Chelsea are close to agreeing a £13million deal to sign midfielder, Andrey Santos from Vasco de Gama.

According to Le10 Sport, Chelsea have moved quickly to wrap up a deal to sign Santos in the January transfer window, provided the 18-year-old does not have a late change of heart.

The report added that Paris Saint-Germain have been monitoring Santos’ displays for several months, while Barcelona and Newcastle United have also kept tabs on the 18-year-old.

It’s reported that Chelsea’s proposal ‘was considered more consistent with Santos’ expectations’ than the project put forward by PSG.

Santos made his first-team breakthrough with Vasco de Gama earlier this year.

He has quickly established himself as a regular player at the heart of their midfield.
