Lagos State governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has called for calm following the defeat of his political godfather and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu by the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
Sanwo-Olu in a personally signed statement advised Lagosians not to take laws into their hands.
The statement read in part:
“We have got reports of friction in some parts of Lagos this morning. All is calm now.
There is no need for violence, which is not part of our culture.
I urge all Lagosians to go about their businesses without any fear of harassment. Law enforcement agencies have been asked to ensure that there is no breakdown of law and order in any part of the state.
” I have been your Governor for almost four years, promoting harmony and friendship across ethnic and religious lines without any form of discrimination whatsoever.
Let us remain calm. All will be well. We are a peaceful people and so we shall remain”.
