Igbo group lauds Ambode’s victory, pledges support
a group, the Mass Movement for National Change, has lauded the victory of Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate at the April 11 governorship poll. An executive member of the group, Chief Christian Chukwu, in a chat with The Guardian said the victory of APC both at the federal and state level is a divine victory from God.
He, therefore, charged Igbo and non-indigenes in the state to support and co-operate with the party at all tiers of government, while governments on its part should keep their mandates as promised. He further appealed to all Lagosians to pay their taxes regularly for rapid development and transformation of Lagos.
Speaking in the same vein, founder and national coordinator of the group, Mr. Uche Iheakanwa, urged the Igbo community in the state to be peace, law-abiding and support the government of day, by remaining enterprising and resourceful to their host communities.
He recalled that the Igbo citizens and other ethnic groups in Lagos have always enjoyed peaceful co-existence while making positive impact on the economy of the state through their high sense of hard work and industry, a trait the Igbo race is noted and respected for.
