Lagos Governor, Sanwo-Olu wants To Meet Little Boy Who Asked His Mom To “Calm Down” In Viral Video

Babajide Sanwo-olu wants to meet the little boy who was seen in a viral video, asking his mom who wanted to beat him, to calm down.

The Lagos State Governor commended the young boy for his sobriety and urged Lagosians to emulate and demonstrate his sense of self-restraint at this time the world is combating the scourge of COVID-19.

In his words;

“I saw a video of one charming young boy online asking his mom to ‘calm down’ as she was set to punish him for his 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.

The exchange was indeed funny, but it depicts the efforts parents put in moulding children into responsible adults. I want to assume that his mom indeed calmed down because the appeal was moving enough to make anyone change their mind.

Interestingly, the video inspired this special message to the good people of Lagos State because of the deeper meaning it conveys. Fellow Lagosians, we need to ‘calm down’ as we enjoy the coming holiday and festivity.

It is a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim’s heart of sacrifice and faith in Allah.

We need to emulate and demonstrate his sense of self-restraint at this time the world is combating the scourge of COVID-19.

We need to be moderate in our celebration and also observe prescribed protocols towards defeating the deadly coronavirus, which are, maintaining social distancing, washing and sanitizing our hands, and using our face masks.

The world needs responsibility and commitment of its people to oust coronavirus.
