Omicron: Sanwo-Olu Shelves Lagos Peace Walk by Nobody: 11:06am On Dec 09, 2021
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has shelved the Lagos peace walk planned for December 2021.

The Governor, in an address on November 30, 2021, had invited some known faces of the EndSARS protest in the state in October 2020 to a peace walk for “the healing of Lagos” later this month.

But in a press statement on Thursday, November 9, 2021, Sanwo-Olu said he is “constrained to stand down all preparations for the Walk for Peace” so as not to “endanger the life of any Lagosian” amid the outbreak of the Omicron COVID-19 variant.

He said, “Between Tuesday 30, November 2021 that I made my address and now, we have seen a significant rise in cases associated with the Omicron variant of this pandemic.

“Given this development, I am constrained to stand down all preparations for the Walk for Peace. I will not endanger the life of any Lagosian in my sincere search for peace. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support the initiative received from far and near. The deluge of support is, however, indicative of one thing: our people know the strategic place of peace to our quest for development.”

Best decision Gov. Sanwo-Olu. A good leader will always consider the consequences of his/her action.

That's a wise decision. Omicron is spreading like wildfire.

Omicron or fear of hijacking by touts, seeing what happened at Ojudu. Young boys and girls throwing stones.
At least thank God wisdom has prevailed.

But in a press statement on Thursday, November 9, 2021, Sanwo-Olu said he is “constrained to stand down all preparations for the Walk for Peace” so as not to “endanger the life of any Lagosian” amid the outbreak of the Omicron COVID-19 variant.

November 9? Typo error or Mr. Jags or Mr. Akosile didn't read through before issuing!

Omicron or not security wise that walk is not a good idea, what if he got attacked or anything bad happens, most especially now that many things keeps happening in Lagos almost everyday.
Let him channel that energy into something else better.
That walk is more of show up and nothing more, where were the so called organization when the whole shit was going on even MURIC.
May God give Nigerians brain and sense to vote in leaders with human feelings.

There's no Omicron involved in the cancellation, the so-called peace walk was always dead on arrival. The major participants who would've given the walk the credibility he so seeks turned down the invite.
