Areas of EndSARS report that affect FG will be addressed —Adesina

Published:

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said the Federal Government will only address the areas of the EndSARS report of concern to it.

Sources reported that the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters, on Monday, November 15, 2021, submitted its report to the state governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The governor then set up a four-member committee for a White Paper report which will be submitted within the next two weeks for the Lagos State Executive Council to consider.

Adesina, during an interview on Channels Television’s Breakfast Programme, Sunrise Daily, on Monday, said the Federal Government awaits the White Paper report.

He said the areas that concern the state will be left for the state while those with Federal nature will be handled by the Federal Government.

“What would happen is that when the states come up with pronouncements on that panel report, that would then be of interest to the Federal Government.

“Definitely, when the reports come out, the ones that are Federal in nature will be considered. There are some things that would be Federal in nature, the Federal Government would tackle that but things that are state in nature, the state government will handle.

“There is an Attorney General of the Federation who will advise and the needful would be done,” Adesina said.

On if some states have submitted their report to the Federal Government, he said, “I am not quite sure of that, but I know that areas that would affect the Federal Government will be looked into by the Federal Government.”
