Following the EndSARS judicial panel report, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has reportedly stated that the Federal Government will only address the areas of the EndSARS report of concern to it.
The PUNCH 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.
Disclosing this in an interview on Channels Television’s Breakfast Programme, Adesina reportedly made it known that the areas that concern the state will be left for the state while those with Federal nature will be handled by the Federal Government.
According to him, “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.”
He made it known that, “There is an Attorney General of the Federation who will advise and the needful would be done.”
Commenting on if some states have submitted their report to the Federal Government, Adesina maintained that, “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.”
