Chairman OSU R’ Urhobo, OSU IV, High Chief Vincent Ahwi

Lagos State South-South traditional ruling council has demanded for the appointment of South-South people as commissioners, special advisers, board members, and chairmen of boards during a courtesy visit to the council by members of Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organisation led by the Director, Ethnic Affairs, Hon Adelana Wale.

Chairman OSU R’ Urhobo, OSU IV, High Chief Vincent Ahwi said the Urhobo and entire South-South are core stakeholders in Lagos State’s affairs and consequently deserve dividends in all ramifications.

The council, therefore, demanded an end to marginalisation of the group and urged empowerment of South-South people in Lagos state.

Wale said Lagos State has continued to create an atmosphere for all ethnic groups to relate peacefully.

With the slogan ‘Our Lagos’, he noted that the contributions of non-indigenes to Lagos State’s economic development could not be undermined. He commended the South-South people’s calmness and promised to relate details of the meeting to appropriate quarters.
