By: Ogunleye Oluwapelumi


Following the uproar and disagreement going on in Lagos about the just concluded general election, the executive governor of Lagos state in a statement has called on all lagosians to live in peace and shun anything violence, believing that unity is key and supreme.


” We have seen emotions arise across the country and in our melting pot, Lagos. I acknowledge these feelings because this is the beauty of true democracy—we all have different views. However, we accommodate those differing views thoughtfully and peacefully.


” Lagos remains the greatest city in Nigeria and one of the largest economies in West Africa. Despite sitting on only 1% of Nigeria’s landmass—a third of that being water—we house 10% of Nigeria’s population. Together, we’ve always been able to overcome and thrive, not because of the challenges but despite them. Together, we united to support and protect each other during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in doing so, we kept our citizens safe and our casualties low.


” Together, we nurtured a creative industry that has taken over the airwaves globally.

Together, we contributed to fostering a vibrant start-up community that creates new unicorn businesses. The constant drive to succeed and build is the beauty of the melting pot that is Lagos” Sanwo-Olu added.


The governor reiterated how committed he is to accelerating the development and pushing lagos forward towards being the 21st-century economy.
