Everything With Be Ok, Be Patient; Oba of Lagos to Nigerians

The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu I, has urged Nigerians to be patient in spite of the hard times in the country. He said all will be well in the course of time.

"I amm confident that Nigeria's economy, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, will change for good because our president is focused," Oba told newsmen yesterday in his palace during the celebration of the Isese Festival at Isale Eko area of Lagos Island.

The present hardship in the country, according to him, is a prelude to a better tomorrow.

“Let us cooperate with the government. Do not take the law into your hands and always inform the security agencies wherever there are criminal activities,” Akiolu said.

He appealed to the Niger Delta Avengers to stop bombing oil facilities and put their grievances on the table for the government to address.

He added: “I agree to some extent with them that certain things have to be done for them, but they just have to give peace a chance and things will work for them.

“They should stop and put their grievances on the table and the government will address it. It is not too late to mend.”
