Lagos Ohanaeze’s Backing Of Sanwo-Olu, Trick —Ndigbo Says

Governor, Lagos State Babajide Sanwo Prefers To Be Addressed As Mr.Governor Not His Excellency

Some faction of Ndigbo in Lagos has described the endorsement of All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu by the Lagos State chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo as a scam. The Leaders of the group comprising Dr. Jonathan Nnaji, Dr. Vincent Anyigor, Chief Arthur Nwachukwu and Ben Akah, said the Lagos Ohanaeze chairman,  Chief Solomon Ogbonna conducted himself in a manner that does not represent the interest of Ndigbo in Lagos.

The Spokesperson of the group, Ben Akah, in a statement yesterday in Lagos said: “We just want to let people know that what has happened in the past few days is what we call a scam. The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo had earlier declared that the policy of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that is hinged on restructuring  is welcomed by the Igbo race, that power should be devolved to the various units.”

The group also said: “We also want the space to be open for people to prosper, individual businesses to rise so that poverty can be chased away, because the policies of PDP were consistent with the aspirations of Ndigbo in general. Stemming from this, the Ime-obi council under Nwodo took a decision that in this particular election, the Igbo race will support the PDP.” And he didn’t make any pretense about it as he announced it to the world.
