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.
These were Governor Babajide SanwoOlu’s words of advice to Lagosians, immediately after the results of the State’s Presidential election was announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
According to a statement personally signed by the Governor himself, “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. “
