Narrative Of Igbo Taking Over Lagos Is Baseless – LP Deputy Gov. Candidate

The Labour Party Deputy governorship candidate in Lagos State, Princess Abiodun Oyefusi has called on Lagosians to discard the narrative of Igbos taking over the state.

Oyefusi who spoke to journalist on Monday described such statement as mischief and unnecessary at a time when the unity of the country is much needed.

She oted that unity, peace and progress amongst the different ethnic groups of the country are the major determinants of the growth and development of the State.

She said: “I would like to use this opportunity to call on well meaning lagosians to overlook the narrative of Igbos taking over Lagos.

“This narrative or statement is mischief and unnecessary as it divides us rather than unify us as a nation because no doubt lagos is a reflection of the existentiality of Nigeria.

“I am bold to say that unity, peace and progress amongst the different ethnic groups of the country are the major determinants of the growth and development of the state.

“I therefore urge the purveyors of such statements to desist from such as it is capable of setting the state specifically and the country generally on fire.

“Perhaps many do not know that i am the daughter of late Ayangbure of Ikorodu and so i am a lagosian to the core.

“Anyways, i want to appeal to the electorates to come out en masse come March 11 and vote for the party in order to take lagos to an enviable status.

“Dont relax yet! Obidients still have this to do for the freedom of all.

“I want to assure you that the administration of Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour will deliver its promises and also do well in unifying all the cultural inhabitants in the State,” she said.
