Popular skitmaker, Mr Macaroni has come out to reject the invitation of Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to a peace walk for the healing of Lagos. He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he doesn’t buy the idea at all because genuine peacemaking should begin with the government implementing the recommendations of the panel set up months back.
Macaroni added that failure to look into these recommendations, he will never be able to trust the state government.
His words, “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.”
“Mr Governor has said it in his speech that to be a Centre of Excellence, we have to be a Center of Truth. Before there can be healing, the government has to be sincere. There must be acceptance of wrongdoings and willingness to correct them.”
“The last walk wey I do, na so dem bundle me, strip me naked, brutalize and dehumanize me. I no carry gun, I no carry weapon. As dem dey beat me, dem dey ask why I dey disturb Mr Governor. Now dem say make I come do walk. For another round of beating??”
“Abeg o. If I wan lose weight, I go go gym. Same peaceful Walk wey Nigerian Youths do wey dem kill them? Some are still in prison.. Some have gone into hiding. Their lives no longer theirs all because we decided to walk against police brutality.”
