I want to be a police officer to fight corruption, says boy in ‘mummy calm down’ video
Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, a little boy who inspired the viral “mummy calm down” video, says he wants to be a police officer in the future so as to fight corruption.
The 4-year-old boy spoke of his dream career when he featured on an Instagram Live chat with City People TV on Friday.
“I want to be a police officer to fight corruption,” he said while fielding questions from Seyi Kehinde, the host.
The little boy said his comment in the video was to plead with Toluige Olokobi Babalola, his mother, not to administer disciplinary action on him.
He expressed excitement about the attendant popularity the video has brought to his family, while also lauding his mother.
On her part, Toluige, who also featured on the live session, said she never envisaged that the video clip — which was done out of sheer fun — could become an internet sensation in the blink of an eye.
“It was God that destined it this way, I never envisaged it would fetch us such popularity,” she said.
She said the development had turned her from the usual “everyday person with nothing special” and his boy to a celebrity, whom many people now crave to speak with.
The mother of two, however, dismissed claims that she was abusing the little boy in the video, noting that her action was borne out of her desire to correct him from further wrongdoings.
On how the video found its way online, Toluige said she had shared it with her sister in America to catch a glimpse of Ore’s trademark theatrics whenever she wants to spank him for wrongdoing.
She said unknown to her, her sister, who could also not contain her laughter after watching the video, shared it to a group she belonged to and consequently hit the internet.
She also revealed that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos state — who earlier requested to meet Ore — had already reached out to inform them he is working something out for him.
Toluige enjoined Nigerian parents to always dissipate attention into discovering the inherent potentials in their children, adding that such could be their ticket to stardom.
Lagos govt set to ease home ownership

Lagos State Government says it is upscaling its housing delivery performance and subsidising the cost of the homes to reduce the barrier to home ownership in the state.
Lagos State Commissioner for Housing, Mr Moruf Akinderu-Fatai, made this known on Friday in a statement signed by Mrs Adeola Salako, Spokesperson of the ministry.
The commissioner said this was a response to the growing gap in housing demand in relation to the available accommodation in the state.
Akinderu-Fatai said the government was committed to the provision of affordable mass housing units in spite of the increasing cost of building materials occasioned by the current inflationary trend.
He said that Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu had directed that cost of homes built by the state should be lower than the market price to make home ownership easier for the people.
Akinderu-Fatai said that the government was pursuing the agenda of housing provision with increased vigour to ensure that more homes are available for residents before the end of the year.
“We are engaging multinationals along with other Ministries, Departments and Agencies to build and support the financing of buildings in the state.
“This is the viable option, given the fact that land is a limited resource in the state,” he said.
He said with population upsurge, meaningful impact could be achieved through space maximisation by the construction of high-rise buildings where progress was being recorded.
According to him, the state’s housing schemes, located in Odo-Onosa Ayandelu, Agbowa, Sangotedo Phase 1, Gbagada and Omole Phase 1, will be delivered soon.
The commissioner explained that the projects were being financed through direct budgetary allocation for the benefit of low and middle-income earners to come on the home ownership ladder.
He said this would be accomplished through a convenient mortgage system where homes shall be allocated through the Rent-to-Home Scheme and whereby the tenure of payment would be 120 months.
Akinderu-Fatai said that an initial payment of five per cent of the value of the homes by the allottees was required before spreading the balance.
He listed other schemes that were being constructed through direct budgetary allocation to include Egan-Igando, LASU, Ita-Marun in Epe and Ajara.
The commissioner said though these schemes were inherited from previous administrations, the government was committed to speedy delivery in line with the THEMES agenda.
“Housing provision is pivotal to the transformation of the lives of the people,” Akinderu-Fatai said.
