'Mummy calm down' internet sensation: A Lesson To Lagos; Governor Says & Wishes To See The Boy

The Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency, Babatunde Sanwo-olu, has expressed his desire, to meet with the boy in the ''mummy calm down'' viral video.

The boy, whose diplomatic and apologetic approach, in persuading and discouraging his mother from beating him, captivated everyone in a viral video.

His remorseful speech, got everyone's heart.

He says -

“Mummy calm down. Don’t be angry. I am just telling you to be calming down. I want you to be calming down, so you can now rest small..small. You must rest. You must rest a little. Just rest like this (he walks up to the chair, showing his mother how to rest, by sitting).

Mummy, are you videoing me? What are you doing? Mummy, I am sorry”.

With his mom, trying to force him into stretching out his hands, for few strokes of the cane, he quickly, went on with more apologies, to buy himself, more time.

He says -

“Mummy, I just want to ask you a few questions for once. Can I ask you questions please?”

This boy's “calm down” plea, has not only broken the internet, but, has also, melted and captivated the heart of the Governor of Lagos State.

The Governor wrote via his Twitter page:

''I saw a video of one charming young boy online, asking his mom to ‘calm down’, as she was set to punish him, for his 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. 

The exchange was indeed funny; but, it depicts the efforts, parents put in moulding children into responsible adults. I want to assume that his mom indeed calmed down; because, the appeal was moving enough to make anyone change their mind.

Interestingly, the video inspired this special message, to the good people of Lagos State; because, of the deeper meaning it conveys. 

Fellow Lagosians, we need to ‘calm down’, as we enjoy the coming holiday and festivity.

It is a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim’s heart of sacrifice and faith in Allah. 

We need to emulate and demonstrate his sense of self-restraint, at this time the world is combating the scourge of COVID-19.

We need to be moderate in our celebration; and also, observe the prescribed protocols towards, defeating the deadly coronavirus; which are: maintaining social distancing, washing and sanitizing our hands, and using our face masks. 

The world needs responsibility and commitment of its people, to oust coronavirus.

I urge every Lagosian to ‘calm down’, and not get carried away, by the ‘excitement of the moment’. 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!

 Meanwhile, I would like to meet the young boy, since, we both have exclusive right to the phrasal verb ‘calm down’ ''.
Currently, ''Calm down’' and ''this is my last chance in the world'', is now the new trending words, on the cyberspace; as, it replaces the Senator's ‘'Honourable Minister, Issokay! Issokay!!, Off your mic please''.
