I Have not Been Able to Speak to Buhari since Lekki Toll Gate Shooting- Sanwo-Olu


Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday declared that all efforts to reach out to Buhari after the shooting of protesters at Lekki Toll Gate were futile.

Sanwo-Olu noted that he made attempts twice to reach President Muhammadu Buhari but were abortive.

He said the first calling, the President was not in the office, adding that the second time, he was said to be at the Federal Executive Council meeting.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed this during an interview on Arise Television, monitored by our correspondent.

He said:

“I made phone calls to the President. I made calls twice yesterday (Wednesday). The first time, he hadn’t come to the office and the second time, he was at the FEC meeting.”

“So, indeed, I have not spoken to him directly. I actually did call to speak with him. But like I said, he was at the FEC meeting and probably had his briefings.”

“He was the one that asked the Chief of Defence Staff to call me and I think it was when he got my message.”

“He (CDS) said to me, that it was the President that asked him to call. I don’t have a report to say. We haven’t spoken.”
