Lekki Robbery: Statement by Gov. Fashola totally irresponsible – Reuben Abati


Presidential Media aide, Reuben Abati has
described as totally irresponsible the statement
made by Governor of Lagos state Babatunde
Fashola that the success of the robbery incident
that occurred in Lekki yesterday March 12th was
as a result of the drafting of all police formation in the state to protect President Jonathan who
was in the state when the robbery incident
occurred. Reuben Abati spoke to state house
correspondence “We consider the statement attributed to
Governor Fashola as grossly and utterly
irresponsible. We expect that a man of his
status who is the Governor of a state should
speak more responsibly. It doesn’t make any
sense whatsoever that the entire police formation in a state would be deployed to
protect the president of Nigeria. The visit of
the President or any part of the country does
not necessitate the depletion of the police
force active in that particular state or its
environment. The President has a defined team that protects him anywhere he goes
and again President Jonathan does not need
the entire police force to protect him in a
state where he is loved by the people and
where as we have seen, he enjoys
overwhelming support to the leadup of the 2015 presidential election” he said
