Walk Of Peace: Mr Macaroni Declines Sanwo-Olu's Invite, Says Government Should Be Sincere

Comedian Debo Adedayo popularly known as Mr. Macaroni has followed in the footstep of Folarin 'Falz' Falana as he declined Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu's invite to partake in the 'Walk of Peace.

Recall that Governor Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State in a live broadcast held at the State House, Alausa on Tuesday announced he will take the lead for ‘A Walk for Peace’ in December to herald the healing of the land after the disturbances that trailed last year’s protests against police brutality.

Mr. MacaroniThe Governor specifically 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 for our dear Lagos.”

Responding, Mr. Macaroni pointed to the last protest he went to in February, stating that he was brutalized and dehumanized despite not breaking any law.

Referencing to part of Sanwo-Olu's speech that 'to be a center of Excellence, we have to be a Center of Truth', Mr. Macaroni urged the government to be sincere and must accept their wrongdoings and be prepared to correct them before there can be healing.

The 28-year-old activist reminded the Governor of the Judicial panel's recommendation, stating that he believes peacemaking will begin by first implementing the recommendations.

He clarified that he was not at war with anyone but only wants the government to place value on the lives of Nigerians and lead with love, fairness, truth and justice to enable the citizens to live a better life.

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.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos StateMr Governor has said it in his speech. That to be a center 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.

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.

Finally, I’m not at war with anyone. Not with the Government, police or politicians. All we are asking is that our leaders place value on our lives as citizens and lead us with love, fairness, truth and justice, to enable all Nigerians live a better life in peace and unity.
