Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola yesterday Thursday February 27th renamed a hall initially named after him, to “Peace Hall’’, in memory of slain Yobe school children.

Vanguard reports that the hall was constructed by the Lagos Zonal Council of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), located at Fadeyi in Lagos.

Fashola said at the inauguration of the hall earlier named after him by NUPENG that he changed the name to honour the slain secondary school students.
"I appreciate NUPENG’s gesture but I will rename this edifice `Peace Hall`, in memory of the lives of the children that were brutally slain in Yobe by insurgents. The Children will soon be forgotten but as a reminder to us and the need to stand up for what is right, I ask that the hall be re-named as NUPENG’s Peace Hall, as we all search for peace across Nigeria. While we pray for the repose of the souls of these young ones, it is also a moment we must stand up as a nation. Whatever language you speak, whatever faith you practise, whatever ethnic/tribe you claim, this is the time it will not show. No matter how diverse we are, we are still one people, this is a time when colours and flag do not matter and political ideologies mean nothing. This is the time we must show and respect the values of the lives of fellow Nigerians’’ The governor said.

I welcome this development. We as a nation need a memorial to keep the memory of these slained students alive.

However, with the French promising to help Nigeria get rid of this militant bloodsuckers - Boko Haram- I am wondering whether inviting an army from a christian country - the French- to help eradicate Boko Haram will not been seen as a "crusade" and eventually do more harm than good!

But then again I understand no Islamic nation is ready to help as they all appear ti have their own insurgents committing the same atrocities.

All we can do is sit down and look and hope and pray!!!

Why are you all hiding the truth, why not tell the northerners what they are fighting for, which is their own country where they can practice their SHARIA and no western education as they want. Tomorrow they will still kill more

If they want their own country, Fine..
Let them go and leave Nigeria alone.
We are tired of these killings.
May the souls of the departed young students rest in the bossom of the lord.
