What Lagos Govt Plans To Do For Suvivors Of The Collapse Building At Ikoyi, That's Commendable

A recent story of how a 21-storey building collapsed in Ikoyi, Lagos State, has trended in different social media platforms. This sad incident has led to the death so many as confirmed by newsmen while others are allegedly trapped in the building.

The whole blame is on the owner of the building because reports from newsmen confirmed that the owner violated the government's approval of a 15-storey building and built a 21-storey building. As a result of this, the owner of the building has been arrested and would definitely face the law for risking the lives of innocent citizens for selfish interest.

The Lagos State government has promised to take care of the medical bills of the rescued victims.

I sincerely commend the show of love by the deputy governor of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, for making out time to visit the survivors of this sad incident. And also commend the State government, for promising to take care of their medical bills because this would help to relieve the victims of so much thoughts on how to go about the bills. It would allow proof to them how much the government cares about them.

What do do you have to say for this show of love by the State Government?
