SOUTHWEST 

As the one week deadline given to Ministers to interface with their governors, stakeholders and protesting youths by President Muhammadu Buhari expired on Wednesday, Ministers from the South-West geopolitical zone have called for a thorough investigation of the involvement of the military in the shooting at the Lekki Toll Gate.
The Ministers, who submitted their report to the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting in Abuja, also recommended that the Federal Government supports the Lagos State Government in efforts to replace damaged facilities in the State.
They also urged the Federal Government to consider short and medium term support to small and medium businesses affected by the looting and arson that took place in Lagos and other parts of the country through the Central Bank Intervention Mechanism under the COVID-19 funding.
