LASG Vote: Another lockdown looms - ITREALMS

The Lagos State government may end up with another lockdown of the commercial city considering the level of support of the ongoing online voting, reports ITREALMS.

LASG, has introduced online voting to determined following reported unsatisfactory compliance to the relaxed lockdown.

ITREALMS reports that LASG Twitter handle, @officialLASG, asked that considering the level of compliance with government's directives on limiting the spread of Covid-19 in a Lagos State, “should the State Government impose another lockdown or not?”

Barely 21 hours left to the end of the voting period, ITREALMS gathered that lockdown has 49.4 per cent, don’t lockdown scored 40 per cent and neutral got 10.7 per cent.

All things being equal, if by the end of this voting session, the lockdown votes still lead, tendency is that the state governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, could declare another lockdown using the outcome of the vote as reason.

ITREALMS gathered that Lagos had been on lockdown almost five days before the presidential lockdown commenced for 21 days before it was relaxed last week Monday.

As at the time of filing this report, ITREALMS also gathered that some 74,055 votes have been casted across the three options.

Meanwhile, some of the arguments Lagosians were positing include that they did not see much effect of the lock downs before now, especially without any palliatives.

Others attributed increase in the community infection currently on the rise to lack of social infrastructure to accommodate the new order of reduced number of persons per bus.

Equally some of the voters advised LASG to consult his security chiefs and focus on more sensitization of Lagosians and improved monitoring of compliance to make a difference in the compliance.

This, they told ITREALMS, is the panacea, not another lockdown.

Yet, for those supporting another level of lockdown, they blamed Lagosians for lack of compliance.

The online voting on this trend which began since Tuesday, May 12, 2020, just as ITREALMS further gathered that even the online referendum.
