Popular comedian, Mr Macaroni has given reasons he rejected Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s invitation for a peace walk in Lagos State.
Sanwo-Olu in a speech on Tuesday on the Lekki shootings of October 20, 2020, said, he will be leading a Walk for Peace in December to herald the healing of our land.
The Governor who invited Falana, Adebayo, Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalink), Adedotun (Just Detoun), Seun Kuti; Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu; and Commander of Rapid Response Squad CSP Yinka Egbeyemi was quoted as saying “Let me use this occasion to extend an open invitation to our youths, members of the diplomatic corps, civil society groups, students and the media as well as other stakeholders to join me.”
But Macaroni, in a tweet on Tuesday, said he declined the invitation because recommendation made by the Lagos State panel on End SARS has not been implemented.
“ I humbly decline the Invitation of Mr Governor. The Government themselves set up a panel. The panel has made recommendations. I believe that genuine peacemaking will begin by first implementing the recommendations of the panel. Then we can begin to trust the government.
“Finally, I’m not at war with anyone. Not with the Government, police or politicians.
“All we are asking is that our leaders place value on our lives as citizens and lead us with love, fairness, truth and justice, to enable all Nigerians live a better life in peace and unity.”
