The Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwoolu has urged Lagosians to avoid violence and be calm.
Reports arose recently that some people didn’t agree to the fact that Peter Obi, the LP presidential candidate defeated the former Lagos governor, APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and other Candidates in Lagos.
According to the INEC result, Peter Obi defeated other candidates in Lagos.
Governor Sanwoolu told the citizens to be calm and don’t fight over results.
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.
Governor, Lagos State
