The Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, has said that he is more Igbo than any other person since Lagos is a cosmopolitan place.
Ambode spoke when Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi hosted him and his entourage at the Government House, Enugu alongside other dignitaries, who were in Enugu ahead of the burial of the elder statesman and former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme in Oko, Anambra State yesterday.
He said: “I am not too sure whether I can cross any street in Lagos without having an Igbo brother or sister and if you want to govern Lagos properly, you have to abide by the rules and conditions of business men and women and which the majority happens to be our brothers.”
Ambode commended Chief Ugwuanyi for his development strides despite the nation’s economic challenges and the meager resources of the state.
He applauded Ugwuanyi for the peace in the state, emphasizing that where other states seem to be having problem, there is dignified peace and stability in Enugu.
