Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has called on Nigerian youths to attend a peace walk to signal a new beginning towards the rebuilding of the state.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed this on Tuesday during a press conference held at the state house, Alausa, Ikeja.

The governor called on youths, members of the diplomatic corps, civil society groups, students, and the media to join him in the peace walk.

Reports emerged that he specifically invited Folarin Falana, the entertainer better known as Falz; Debo Adebayo, popularly known as Mr Marcaroni; Dele Farotimi, an activist and lawyer; Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya, Seun Kuti, among others, to join him in the 'historic march for our dear Lagos.'

The Governor said in part, “Nobody will build this city for us. Let us show the world who we are. We are Lagosians. A people of great renown, driven by the irrepressible spirit of Lagos.

“It is a testimony to our strength and resilience as a people that, despite the huge losses incurred because of these terrible incidents, we have bounced back, with our economy as vibrant and virile as ever. I have no doubt whatsoever that our prospects are as bright as ever and the best lies ahead of Lagos State and Nigeria.”
