Governor Sanwo-Olu calls for calm, directs security agencies to prevent breakdown of law and order

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has directed the law enforcement agencies to ensure there is no breakdown of law and order in any part of the state as it calls for calm among the citizens.

This is a reaction to the reported threats of violence in the state after the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, defeated his All Progressive Congress (APC) counterpart and former governor of the state, Bola Tinubu, in the state.

According to a series of tweet posts from the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on New Media, Jubril Gawat, Governor Sanwo-Olu on Monday, 27 February 2023, urged Lagosians to go about their businesses without any fear of harassment.

While acknowledging receipt of reports of friction in some parts of the state on Monday morning, the governor said that there is no need for violence as it is not part of the culture in the state.

Lagosian should remain calm

  • The statement from Governor Sanwo-Olu reads, ‘’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.’’
