The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, backed Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to sanction anyone indicted over the Ikoyi building collapse should be sanctioned.
Tinubu said those who failed in their responsibilities to prevent the building collapse should be dealt with.
The former governor of the State in a statement by his Media Office, express regret over the regulatory failure that led to the incident.
Tinubu said, “The collapse of a 21-storey building on Gerald Road in Ikoyi, Lagos, is a sad and painful incident.
“This tragedy should never have occurred. I endorse Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s order for an investigation into this tragedy. There are many questions to ask, and all those questions deserve full and public answers.
“We must get to the bottom of this ghastly occurrence. It is obvious and plain to us all that something went terribly wrong.
“If indeed intentional or reckless wrongdoing has been committed, severe and appropriate sanctions should find those who have been found to have shirked their fundamental responsibilities.”
