The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has asked residents to cooperate to maintain the state’s political stability.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, the Lagos State governor made the appeal while speaking with representatives of the Ohanaeze Political Forum and the Lagos State branch of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, both of which are chaired by Chris Ekwilo and Solomon Ogbonna, respectively.
The governor insisted that the 2023 general elections for residents of Lagos, especially the Igbos, should be about those who have the interest of the nation at heart in a statement released by Sanwo-spokesman, Olu’s Gboyega Akosile, titled, “Sanwo-Olu to Ndigbo: Let’s remain united for peace, political stability in Lagos.”
He said: “There is no part of this state that one form of development is not happening. We will continue to push development in every nook and cranny of the state. This is the most peaceful state in the country. We spent so much on security to keep all of us saved on a daily basis. So, if people now come and want to divide us, we shouldn’t let that happen.
“We all have a responsibility to continue to ensure that Lagos continues to remain politically stable for all of us so that we can continue to enjoy the peace that we are all experiencing. All the things we are doing are natural for us to do because God has created us to make life better for our fellow human beings.
“Don’t let us begin to divide what has held us. Let us be careful and let our people know that what is holding us together is bigger than wanting to divide us. For me, it is not just about coming back; it is just because we want the development to continue in Lagos. We will do our best. We will convince and carry everybody along and make sure we give everybody space. Don’t change something that is good and working.”
