Lagos not ‘no man’s land’, it’s insulting to think so- Igbo Group


Ndigboamaka progressive markets association, a group made of traders from 58 markets across Lagos, says the state is not a “no man’s land”.


During a recent conference themed: “Catalyzing partnership with traders through innovation, technology, analytical and sustainability,” the group asked Igbo traders in the state to disregard the school of thought that Lagos is a no man’s land.


Chinedu Ukatu and Anthony Okeke, president and secretary-general of the group, in a communique cautioned Igbos that “while they live in Lagos and do business and make a living, they should not in any way suggest that Lagos is a no man’s land”.


“The conference agreed that it is erroneous and insulting to think so.


 “The conference also expressed sadness at the occasional diatribe between Yoruba and Igbo in Lagos state as is currently the case.”


The group also called on the government to address multiple taxes by agencies at ports and at various markets, and urged traders to make use of technology in their daily activities.


The group commended Benjamin Kalu, deputy speaker of the house of representatives; Ohanaeze Ndigbo; Peter Mbah, governor of Enugu state; Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo state; and Alex Otti, governor of Abia state; for their efforts in ensuring that there is harmonious relationship and understanding between the Igbos and Yorubas in Lagos.
