The is as a result of the scarcity of fuel and the pain occasioned by the naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
This was made known by the Chairman of the APC in the state, Cornelius Ojelabi, according to a statement signed by the party’s spokesperson in the state, Seye Oladejo, on Tuesday.

According to the statement Sanwo-Olu “empathised with the general public, especially the downtrodden who are at the receiving end.”
“He expressed the view that it will be insensitive to forge ahead with the various rallies with the situation of things. He emphasised that members of the APC are not immune against the development as he had been inundated with several complaints.
“He joined his voice with those of other well-meaning Nigerians to call for the review of the naira redesign policy to give it a human face and ameliorate the suffering of ordinary Nigerians.
“He equally appealed that petroleum products should be made available in order not to jeopardise the preparation for the elections and reduce the negative economic impact.”
The Lagos APC chairmen further enjoined all Lagosians to remain law-abiding while the government makes effort to resolve the crisis.
