My good people of Lagos State, I write to you all with a heavy heart at this trying period of our national existence.
Firstly, my deepest condolences to the families of those that lost loved ones, I pray God give you the heart to bear the irreplaceable lost.
To those injured, my heart is with you and I pray for your speed recoveries.
My empathy and sympathy is with those who in one way or the other were affected or hurt by the spate of arson, looting and destruction of our national heritage and private properties, as witnessed across the country last week.
I salute the courage of the Nigerian youths who have spoken up and made their agitations and demands known. I appreciate their levels of decorum and maturity.
As we much forward in our national journey, I urge us to pray for the peace of Nigeria both within Lagos and other States.
May I put it on record that no member of the NURTW has been arrested or identify as being part of the hoodlums that went about burning and looting. I commend the NURTW family for this and I urge them to maintain their good behaviours.
As we all strive to keep and maintain the peace we have now in Lagos, and among the NURTW family, I pray Almighty Allah will put an end to all occurrences of lawlessness and anarchy in Nigerian States.
Long live Lagos state.
Long live Nigeria.
To State Chairman
(NURTW Lagos state council).
