A section of the Igbo community in Lagos State under the aegis of ‘Ndigbo Friends of Sanwo-Olu in Lagos,’ has backed the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu. They also conferred a chieftaincy title ‘Ugo Chi Mere Eze,’ on him, meaning ‘Only God that makes a king.’
Sanwo-Olu received the title at an event in National Stadium, Surulere yesterday, where the leader of the group, Dr Chris Nwachukwu pledged their support for him. According to him: “We see the quality of good governance and representation in APC, its governorship candidate and the deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat.”
In his reaction, Sanwo-Olu assured all non-indigenes in Lagos that his government, if elected would continue to protect their interest, especially the Igbo and their businesses.
