Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that he and his government will never walk alone. He stated this on his IG page this evening hours after students of the Lagos State University LASU pledged to join his peace walk.
Recall that on Tuesday, November 30, the governor announced plans to stage a peace walk as part of the healing process for residents of the state after the October 20, 2020, Lekki tollgate shooting. Governor Sanwo-Olu called on entertainers and activists like Falz, Mr Macaroni, Dele Farotimi, and others to join his peace walk. Many of those he invited have turned down the invitation. Some of them on their social media pages wrote “You will walk alone”.
Earlier today, the students of LASU declared their support for the peace walk, stating that they are ready to walk with the governor.
This evening, Governor Sanwo-Olu posted a video showing him with the excited students from the university earlier today. He captioned the video
“We will never walk alone! We will walk together for the peace and progress of our dear state.”
