The Lagos State Government has announced that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will not participate at The Platform Governorship Debate of January 29, 2023, following violence that erupted in Surulere area of the State.   

A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso said, the decision was made after the shocking video of a group of suspected People’s Democratic Party thugs shooting in broad daylight in Surulere.

The debate is organised by Covenant Christian Church, led by Pastor Poju Oyemade.

The Lagos State Government explained that Security agencies are investigating the video, which has gone viral on the social media.

It also expressed belief that they will fish out and prosecute the evil actors, who are believed to be henchmen of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“We condemn this savagery that has portrayed our State, the safest in Nigeria, in a bad light. That is not who we are; we are civilized and cultured”, the Lagos State Government said.

“Following advice from competent sources, including elders and respectable Lagosians, we will henceforth shun any forum that may require us being together with PDP and its agents of violence”, the Lagos State Government added.

“Mr. Governor cherishes future opportunities to engage the congregation and render accounts of his stewardship to them as integral parts of the Lagos electorate”, LASG added.

It concluded, “We will never be found in the company of those to whom the lives of innocent Lagosians mean nothing. Mr Sanwo-Olu won’t share a podium with them”.
