Support for the Peace walk
We wish to congratulate the Lagos State government for handling the incident of EndSARS skillfully, and this is another confirmation of the status of the state as the Centre of Excellence and the pride of the continent of Africa. While other states are still struggling to come to terms with the reality and destruction that heralded the EndSARS protest all across the country, the Lagos State Government set up the panel to investigate the incident, out of the 32 recommendations made by the panel in the well-publicized Report of 15th November 2021, Government accepted 11, rejected only one and accepted six with modifications, this is commendable. And to bring final closure to the incident, the Government of Lagos state has planned to embark on a peace walk.
Peace is a fundamental component for sustainable development. A pleasant business environment is central to progress. In disorderly communities, business activities are disturbed due to unreliable social services, which heighten societal problems such as poverty, unemployment, hunger, and inequality. Lagos State is the foremost economic powerhouse of Nigeria. It has been acknowledged that Lagos would be the fifth-largest economy in Africa if it were a country. Therefore, a peaceful Lagos has a direct positive impact for Nigeria and the entire continent.
In view of the above, we, the members of APC in diaspora, throws our weight behind this symbolic gesture for a peace walk, the purpose of which should also promote activities against the proliferation of dangerous rhetoric on social media, imbibing the culture of dialogue as a means of conflict resolution as against destruction of public and private properties. It is only against this background that Lagos will remain the Centre of excellence.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
