The Senate has come under criticism for rejecting a special status and grant for Lagos metropolis.
Almost all the listeners who participated on a Rockcity FM Programme ’Quick-Take’ condemned the senators for rejecting the motion tabled by senator Oluremi Tinubu for a special grant and status for Lagos.
Listeners on the Rockcity FM Programme were asked if they support or not, the position taken by the senate on the motion.
Out of 37 persons who responded, only one caller said the senate was right in rejecting the motion.
36 other callers disagreed with the senate for denying Lagos a special status and grant.
The only caller who backed the senate, said granting Lagos a special status would create a distraction, at a time when the government is facing agitation in the Niger delta region.
Most of other callers, however said such a special status is necessary to enable Lagos effectively play its role as Nigeria’s economic hub.
