Barely 24 hours after a seven-storey building collapsed and killed six people in Lekki, the Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development in the State, Idris Salako, has resigned.
The state commissioner for information and strategy Gbenga Omotoso announced this in a statement posted on Twitter on Monday.
“The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, has accepted the resignation of the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr. Idris Salako.
This is a prelude to the restructuring of the Ministry and its agencies. Governor @jidesanwoolu thanks the Commissioner for his services to the State and wishes him success in his future endeavours.
“The Governor warns all players in the sector to respect the law or face the consequences of any indiscretion, no matter who the perpetrators are,” the statement said.
Salako’s resignation is believed to be connected to the building which collapsed on Sunday in the Oniru area of Lagos.
