The Presidential candidacy of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the re-election bid of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, received a big boost on Tuesday following the endorsement of the Apex Igbo leadership a.k.a Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State led by the amiable President, Chief Solomon Ogbonna Eugene.
Our Source gathered, that the endorsement was declared at the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Secretariat in Surulere, Lagos, where the critical Igbo stakeholders converged and made the declaration.
Top dignitaries who attended the declaration included the Chairman of the Supreme Council of Traditional Rulers in Lagos State, Eze Lawrence Nnamdi Eze, Ezendigbo Lagos State, Eze Christian Nwachukwu, top traditional rulers from various Local Government areas in the State, captains of Industry including market leaders, men, and women across the Local Government areas in Lagos.
The President of Ohanaeze, Chief Aguene, explained that Ohanaeze Ndigbo Political Forum was inaugurated to give the Igbo in Lagos State direction politically because Ohanaeze is an apolitical organization, which showcases Igbo culture and tradition in Lagos State.
Eugene, however, noted that Ndigbo has benefitted much from the Lagos State Government and has huge investments in the State therefore, it will be unwise not to support the Government of Lagos State since they have accommodated the Igbo, especially Governor Sanwo-Olu and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over the years.
He said that it was not for him to declare the stand of the Igbo since he had formed the political wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Lagos State and directed the Chairman, Chief Chris Ekwilo, to speak on the decision of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in the coming election in 2023.
At that point, Chief Ekwilo explained that it was the first time the Igbo were getting it right in Lagos State and stated that the Igbo in Lagos State will give both Asiwaju Tinubu and Gov Sanwo-Olu block votes in the coming election.
He explained that the Igbo had done it before and will do it in the coming election while asking the Lagos State Government to work with Ohanaeze through the political wing under his leadership.
Chief Ekwilo explained that the political actors that made up Igbo in APC had merged under the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Political Forum and they were ready to work and deliver block votes for the ruling party in Lagos State.
Eze Christian Nwachukwu also spoke in favor of the endorsement and commended the President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Aguene, for creating the Political Forum.
He stressed the need to work as a team to deliver Lagos to the ruling party in the State and asked the Government to compliment the efforts of the Igbo in the State.
He advised the Igbo in Lagos State to ensure that they have their PVCs, which they will use to vote APC in Lagos State.
Eze Lawrence Eze also supported the decision and urged the leadership of the Lagos Ohanaeze Political Forum to reach out to the traditional rulers in the State to know the roles to play in supporting the Lagos State Government during the election.
The Deputy Chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Political Forum, Chief Anselm Udoka, stated that the Igbo have gotten it right by creating the Political Forum and the appointment of Chief Ekwilo as Chairman. He noted that with the political actors in various Igbo political groups in the State, namely United Coalition, Mandate, Vision, and Southeast collapsing their structure into Ohanaeze Ndigbo Political Forum, he is sure Ndigbo will get block votes for Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu.
Other speakers at the event included the founder of Igbo Vision, Chief Babatata Uche, Women Leader, Lady Africa, Secretary of Ohanaeze Political Forum, Chief Smart Onyia, Chief Solomon Chukwu, and others, who equally spoke in favor of the decision taken by the Ohanaeze to support Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu in 2023.
