The Lagos State Youth Representatives on the Judicial Panel have categorically debunked allegations that they are to be paid N750,000 by the state government.
This was contained in a public statement on its official Twitter handle on Thursday to clear the misunderstanding.
The rep members, Rinu Savvy and Tope, tweeted, “Fellow Nigerians, we would like to make clear that no money has been offered by the government as remuneration for our work as Lagos State Youth Representatives on the Judicial panel.”
They further clarified that, “This is to cover costs incurred in the discharge of our duties and nothing more. A breakdown capturing who has contributed, what has been donated and so far, dispensed will be shared shortly. Thank you for your continued support. Rinu and Tope.”
According to the representatives, who were active members of the #EndSARS protest, “We also will not be collecting any money if or when it is presented.
“A group of individuals have come together to support us with legal, strategic and now financial aspects of our work to the tune of N50,000 a session,” they added.Follow us on social media
