Igbos in Lagos deny calling for Sanwo-Olu’s resignation

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Lagos State on Thursday denied calling for the resignation of Governor Sanwo-Olu.

The group’s President, Chief Sunday Ossai issued a rebuttal at a press conference by the Lagos State Leaders of Thoughts.

Ossai also said the people of South-East were supporting Sanwo-Olu’s re-election because he had fulfilled his campaign promises to them.

The Igbo leader declared that any vote outside of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on March 11 would amount to a waste.

“I am a representative of Ndigbo in the state and as their mouthpiece,” NAN quoted him

“I hereby debunk the so-called statement that the Igbo body asked Sanwo-Olu to resign.”

President of Igbo Speaking Community, Chief Sunday Udeh; President of Yoruba Council Worldwide, Aare Oladotun Hassan and State Women Leader, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr Chioma Okoro also addressed reporters.

    They are only entitled to their votes.
    They can't impose any candidate on Igbos nor force anyone on who to vote.
