Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that he and his government will never walk alone 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.
The President of the Student Union Government, Comrade Oladipupo Uthman Badmus and Speaker of the Students Union Representatives, Rt. Hon. Mustapha Adejuwon, who led hundreds of students to welcome the Governor described him as Youth-Centric Governor. They commended the Governor’s giant strides in Lagos State, especially in the education sector.
The student union president however announced that all students of the State-owned tertiary institution have resolved to walk with the Governor for peace and prosperity of the State.
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.”
