Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday expressed his desire to meet a young boy, who appeared on a viral video and calmed down his enraged mother.
The boy, who was a serial offender, was about to be punished for another misdemeanor when he begged the obviously displeased mother for a “last chance.”
Impressed with what he saw on the video, the governor quickly took to his Twitter handle and went philosophical on the ongoing efforts by the government at all levels to tackle the COVID-19 scourge.
He called for restraint from the citizens during this period of COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
Sanwo-Olu wrote: “I saw a video of a charming young boy online asking his mom to ‘calm down’ as she was set to punish him for a misdemeanour. I was moved by his sobriety, which reflected in his promise of ‘last chance,’ when confronted with the fact that he is a regular offender.
“I urge every Lagosian to ‘calm down’ and not get carried away. Like the rest of the world, we are still in the middle of a pandemic and need to remain extremely careful to keep the gains of the sacrifices we have all made in the past months.
Let’s calm down!
“Besides that, I would like to meet the young boy since we both now have exclusive rights to the phrasal verb ‘calm down.”
