The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that an Igbo man would someday become the governor of the state.
Sanwo-Olu pointed out that Igbo people were already stakeholders in Lagos project.
Sanwo-Olu stated this at a reception where he was honoured by his Igbo friends with the title: “Ugochinyere Eze Ndigbo” at the National Stadium in Lagos on Wednesday.
The governorship candidate said the Lagos would remain home to Igbo people.
He said this is because they had contributed to its economic growth through their various businesses in the state.
He noted that Igbo people had not been found wanting in that area.
“One day, your son will stand here as the governor of this state, a senator in Lagos or any other top political office.
“No Lagosian will fight an Igbo man because he is part of us.
“Lagos will be land of milk and honey to you. We know that you are very relevant in this state considering your activities in the area of commerce,” he said.
Sanwo-Olu pointed out that the peaceful co-existence between Igbo and Yoruba people would be worthy of emulation.
