Reports reaching Ikorodu News Network (INN) disclosed that Market women in Ikorodu took a peaceful protest to the Lagos State House of Assembly over the commissioner list sent by Governor Sanwo-Olu.
According to sources, they paraded the House of Assembly gate in the early hours of July 31st 2023.
The market women, who are part of the anxious and agitated residents, lamented over the one representative slated to represent the waterbed region in Governor Sanwo-Olu’s new cabinet and demanded more representation for their region in the Lagos State government.
Furthermore, they called on the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu to take action to address their concerns and to ensure that Ikorodu is given adequate representation in the cabinet list.
The women have vowed to continue their peaceful protest until their demands are met.
Elucidating that other regions in Lagos enjoyed more representatives in the list, they asserted that they believe Ikorodu was not given adequate leverage in the cabinet list, dubbing it a sign of marginalization.
They called on the Governor to take their concerns seriously and to ensure that Ikorodu is given a fair share of representation in the Lagos State government.
