The Igbo Movement in Lagos State says it is behind the Lagos state Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, especially on his plans to run an inclusive government.
Naija News reports that the Nigeria’s ethnic group in Lagos during a brief chat with newsmen over the weekend, pledged to support Sanwo-Olu.
Leader of the movement in Lagos, Chris Onyekachi while speaking during an interactive session in the Nigeria’s commercial city, said that the running of all-inclusive governance would be of great importance to the citizens in the state.
Onyekachi said the Igbos in the state believed in the competency of the incoming Governor of the state, and stressed that their believe for Sanwo-Olu was the reason the Igbos campaigned for him vigorously in several markets in the state to ensure his emergence as governor of Lagos.
“We campaigned in Ketu Market, Mile 12 Market, Ladipo Spare Parts Market and others to ensure his victory and the result was massive. Now that God has made him the father of Lagosians, he should carry everybody along and he should manage all. He should remember the Igbo people who campaigned for him,” he said.
Onyekachi urged the incoming Governor to ensure that there is no form of sentiment in his administration, he said that all citizens in Lagos are expected to live like one big family saying that “we are all one in the presence of God.”
“I appeal to him to see that everybody is carried along, we, Igbo are business people, he should make our environment conducive as we pay our taxes. We will cooperate with Sanwo-Olu’s administration; we need a sense of belonging, last election, we went out and voted for him; God has made him our governor because it is God who crowns all,” he said.
