Igbos Should Not Betray The Trust, Love Yoruba Have For Them – Oluwo

Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdul-Rasheed Adewale Akanbi, Telu I, has charged the Igbos resident in the state not to betray the trust and love of the Yoruba for them.

Reminding them of the strategic position of Lagos to the national economy, he said the Igbo should recognise the leadership structure established by the All Progressives Congress stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, since 1999, which, according to him, was beneficial to all residents of Lagos, irrespective of their ethnicities, religions and political affiliations.

The Oluwo, who spoke with reporters in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, condemned the recent political ethnic division being promoted by some politicians in Lagos State.

He noted that it was barbaric to trade national unity for politics.

Oba Akanbi acknowledged the performance of Lagos State government and the socio-economic status of the state from successive administrations since Tinubu’s tenure in 1999.

According to the first class Yoruba monarch, Tinubu as a visionary and courageous political leader with a high sense of mission has repositioned Lagos for great performance and future advancement.

Oba Akanbi maintained that as “Nigeria’s number one unifying force, no other individual has sustained the national unity agenda and political structure like Tinubu”.

The Oluwo said, as a royal father, he has adopted a cross-cultural posture for national integration and unity since he came on the throne.

He, therefore, described the recent political statements designed to breach the peaceful coexistence in Lagos as unpatriotic.

He advised the Igbo community in Lagos to identify with Tinubu’s political leadership structure, which “he established since 1999 for the collective interest of Nigeria and Nigerians”.
