The Governor of Lagos state has taken to his official twitter platform to urged Lagosians to calm down in this festive period. The governor making reference to the viral boy who negotiated his way out of punishment with his mum telling her to calm down.
The governor further request to meet the boy in the viral video
The governor wrote :
I saw a video of a charming young boy online asking his mom to ‘calm down’ as she was set to punish him for a 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.
I urge every Lagosian to ‘calm down’ and not get carried away. Like the rest of the world, we are still in the middle of a pandemic and need to remain extremely careful to keep the gains of the sacrifices we have all made in the past months.
Let’s calm down!
As an aside, I would like to meet the young boy since we both now have exclusive rights to the phrasal verb ‘calm down’.
