Nigerian prolific rapper, Folarin Falana widely known as Falz has called out Lagos state governor, Babjide Sanwo-olu for soliciting for funds after he made a pledge to set up a 2 billion naira relief fund for the victims of Abule-Ado explosion in Amuwo Odofin local government area of the state.
Sanwo-olu had visited the site for on-the-spot assessment of the explosion was widespread as it hit schools, houses, and office complexes, leading to the death of many while others suffered injuries
However, he decried the Lagos state government’s inability to solely raise the funds, hence his decision to call on well meaning Nigerians to donate to the cause.
A day after making the pledge, the governor revealed that N250 million has been pumped into the fund as he released bank details to which well-meaning donors will deposit the remaining N1.75 billion for the victims of the Abule Ado explosion.
But Nigerian musician, Falz who believes that the state is financially buoyant enough to come up with the 2 billion naira called it a joke.
Falz, wrote: on his Twitter account;
“What kind of joke is this? Who are you asking to donate?”
