Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed that he rescued a man who wanted to commit suicide at the Third Mainland Bridge because he has a debt of N500,000.

The governor made this known while speaking to journalists after he visited the Lagos Island Maternity Hospital, Broad Street and some other hospitals in different parts of the State, to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir with in-patients and health practitioners.

Sonwo-Olu narrated his heroic act while making reference to his recent response to a viral video of a boy begging his mother to calm down while punishing him for an offense he committed,

Governor Sanwo-Olu said he believes strongly in paying attention and creating time to little things because there might be somebody somewhere who needs a help.

“You look at big things but you need to certainly create time for little things as well. That is the difference. You know, you are going to build a bridge and it is nice but you have somebody who is just somewhere who needs a help.

“Just this morning (Friday), we rescued somebody who was planning to jump at the Third Mainland Bridge all because he said he has a debt of N500,000. We had to rescue him and we paid the debt. Those little details are what make the difference.

“I don’t have two heads, I don’t have 15 fingers. We are still same human beings. So, we need to show that human part of us while we are not losing sight of the big picture. The big picture is that we want to build roads, bridges and new schools.

“But we also need to pay attention to little one like the young boy on that video. By the way, I have spoken to him and his mother. They are doing great and I will see him one of these days very soon,” he said.

KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Sanwo-Olu had expressed his desire to meet the little boy who was seen in a viral video asking his mom to ‘calm down’ after offending her.
