“I humbly decline the Invitation of Mr Governor”, said comedian Debo Adebayo, aka Mr Marcaroni hours after the Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu invited him to a peace walk for the healing of Lagos on December.
Sanwo-Olu had in his press briefing on the Endsars panel report, invited Folarin Falana (Falz), Debo Adebayo (Mr. Marcaroni), Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalinks), Adedotun (Just Detoun), Seun Kuti; Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, and Commander of Rapid Response Squad, RRS, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi and others to join him in the “historic march”.
But in a riposte on his verified Twitter handle, Marcaroni argued that ‘genuine peacemaking will begin by first implementing the recommendations of the panel’.
@mrmacaronii: 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.
On his own, Mr Folarin Falana, aka Falz, described Sanwo-Olu’s invitation as a joke, nothing that it is disrespectful to invite him for a peace walk, while justice has not been served since the alleged killing of protesters at Lekki Toll Gate.
His words: @falzthebahdguy: This suggestion of a “walk for peace” sounds like a joke and a very disrespectful one at that.
“People were murdered in cold blood and absolutely no iota of justice has been served more than a year after. How can there be peace without justice ? #EndSARS”.
