Lagos monarch woos Igbos for Sanwo-Olu’s re-election
Tunbosun Ogundare, Lagos
The paramount ruler of Iba Kingdom and Chairman of the Lagos State Parks and Garages Administrators, Oba Sulaimon Raji, has urged Igbo community in Ojo, Iba and Otto-Awori axis to come out en masse this Saturday for the governorship election and vote for the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) and governor Babajide-Sanwo, who is seeking a second term.
The monarch made the appeal at a meeting he had with the leadership of the Igbo community in the axis in his palace.
He said Sanwo-Olu is the best of all the candidates who are contesting for the governorship seat in the election in the state.
He said a vote for him to retain his seat for another four years is a vote for continuity of good governance in the state.
While commending them for what he called their resilience and peaceful co- existence and engagement in their trades and businesses over the years, the monarch appealed to them to continue to co-exist peacefully with other tribes in the axis and the entire state by extension.
In their response, the igbos leaders pledged their support, saying Sanwo-Olu’s administration had really proved to them that Lagos is a land of opportunities for all and they would therefore mobilise support for his re-election.
