This was said by Sanwo-Olu on Monday as the declaration of Lagos as a city with refugees was signed in honor of World Refugee Day in 2022.

He said, “Refugees are not the problem, we here are the problem. We the senators, your leaders, and your community heads who refuse to agree to solve whatever disputes that occur and listen to solutions, because there will always be disputes.

“But normally, what should happen is that every form of disagreement should be resolved because not resolving them will lead to war, strife and displacement.

“Refugees are hardworking and self-motivated people; all they are looking for is a space to thrive, a shoulder to cry on and once you give them that social protection, they will blossom and be willing to contribute their own quota to their host communities.
