Oba of Lagos Rilwan Akiolu Reportedly States Igbo Leaders Will Die if They Don’t Vote for Ambode – HEAR AUDIO

Oba of Lagos NEW

According to ThisDay, the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, stated on Sunday that Igbo leaders in the state would die if they failed to to vote for APC governorship candidate, Akinwumi Ambode in the governorship elections scheduled to hold on Saturday, April 11th.

Akiolu reportedly made the threat while speaking at a meeting with Igbo leaders.

Here is what he allegedly said:

On Saturday, if anyone of you goes against Ambode who I picked, that is your end. If it doesn’t happen within seven days, just know that I am a bastard and it is not my father who gave birth to me.

Jonathan is my son and I speak to him everyday. By the grace of God, I am the owner of Lagos for the time being. This is an undivided chair. The palace belongs to the dead and those coming in the future.

On Saturday, if anyone of you, I swear in the name of God, goes against my wish that Ambode will be the next governor of Lagos State, the person is going to die inside this water.

I’m not ready to beg you. Nobody knew how I picked Ambode. Jimi (Agbaje) is my blood relation and I told him that he cannot be governor in Lagos for now. The future belongs to God. I am not begging anybody, but what you people cannot do in Onitsha, Aba or anywhere, don’t do it here.

If you do what I want, Lagos will continue to be prosperous for you. If you go against my wish, you will perish in the water.

I am for the progress, growth and development of Lagos. Ambode is highly cerebral, he’s a symbol and he is going to deliver the message which I, the Oba of Lagos, have said. And he will govern the state for another eight years.

He is going on a mission and God will give him the wisdom and knowledge to fulfill that mission. Almost a year ago, I declared that Ambode will be the next governor of Lagos and it will not change.

From time immemorial, the previous occupiers of this house will say what they wanted after consultations with other people. And this hasn’t changed and it will not change at this time.

According to reports, Igbo residents in Lagos largely voted for PDP candidates during the presidential and National Assembly elections held on Saturday, March 28th. Reportedly making reference to this, Akiolu is said to have stated:

The mistake of last Saturday was caused by everybody, not only the Igbos. It is not only the Igbos that were responsible for the votes. But we have learnt our lesson. Saturday’s election is going to be a different thing and Ambode is going to win.

Everybody knows that when you fail the first time, you cannot afford to fail again. We are going to tell our people that Ezes from the 20 local governments and 37 local council development areas are here and that we have sworn with the Oba that we are going to make sure that Ambode wins next Saturday’s election.

However, many are questioning the veracity of the reports. Here is what some are saying:

Update:

An audio recording purported to be of Oba Akiolu making the aforementioned statements has hit the Internet:

    Who mad him god? I believe only a medically unfit person would make such wicked utterance and go free…what if he doesn’t live to see dat day?? What if the entire lagos doesn’t vote his candidate? Some people get so power drunk they forget they re mere mortals and only God has the final say……A man of his calibre should only speak peace/unity…..Really disappointed

      Have you seen the flier that Jimi is sharing in the Igbo populated areas? Chai, if you see it. That alone is enough to start a war! Jimi is the one playing politics of tribal division . He has been spreading fliers around trying to turn the Igbos against APC . Both sides need to stop this right now

      Just shows you the type if leader agbaje plans to be-a polarizing leader. Good he has shown his true colors. Lagos needs a leader that will integrate us not disintegrate us. Lagos is a very complex multi ethnic state-we need a diplomatic sensible man not an opportunist.

    • Hmmmmm

      April 6, 2015 at 4:05 pm

      This is such a low class interview done by the oba, if it’s a reliable source. He’s not God, he has no power to control other people’s destiny. And, whatever juju power he depends on will fail. Whoever is right to lead Lagos chosen by God and the people will be the governor whether it’s the candidate he endorsed or not. It’s interesting how Igbos like to claim Yorubas hate them yet they settle freely and build their lives in Yoruba states with no problem. Something they can’t try in Northern states or among themselves. neither can Yorubas settle freely in any of their states. They refuse to focus on developing their own states but whine and cry about been the center of attention in other states. Its ridiculous. Whether Lagos is multi ethnic or not, Lagos is part of the Yoruba states that has open it’s arms to all people. Igbos need to appreciate and stop running their mouths about constant victimization. I don’t support discrimination but hate the victimization card and ungrateful card Igbos play all the time.

      Im sorry @hmmmmm …….that was quite an ignorant statement from you……it seems that some yorubas believe that no yoruba lives outside lagos….I lived in PH and on my street we had more yorubas living there as well as other ethnicities and they are doing very well for themselves and living in peace …. there are also other states like calabar, akwa ibom, delta, Enugu, etc where there are yorubas working and living in peace. It seems that some of you forget that some multinational companies are based in lagos and when you apply, pass their interview etc and get the job should you now turn it down just because lagos is a yoruba state? some of us minorities are there because of work, just as some yorubas are also working and earning a living in other states….this ignorance would not get us anywhere. That is how my friend came to Abuja and did not believe it when she heard some yoruba women talking in the language because according to her she didn’t realise there were this much yoruba people living in abuja. True story, she’s lived in lagos all her life. While I totally understand where you are coming from, there is also some form of ignorance in your comment.

      APC propaganda. Where is the evidence that it is from Jimi. I saw the document and there is no proof it is from the Pdp.

      Jimi has been the better man for this whole . campaign. Acted like a gentleman ignoring all the lies anand propaganda by apc, particularly fashola

      With what we have heard from the oba it is most likely f from the apc.

      @ hmmmmmmm, you are such a nincompoop for saying ibos play the victim card and that we can’t develop our states obviously you are a slave of lagos state and havn’t traveled out of the state and if you feel that the greatness of lagos lies solely in the hands of the Yorubas, you must have Alzheimers. Ibos are hard working people and any state would be lucky to have them settling there. What they’ve done in Lagos they’ve done in the north too but for a select Muslim fanatics who keep running them out. I don’t want to play the tribe card because I have well meaning and sweet Yoruba friends and it would be an insult to their person and heritage.

      @Hmmmmmmm, since the Igbos need to really stick to their own States & stop traipsing in and out of other people’s territory, I’m also thinking the Niger Deltans should be allowed to keep their crude oil and not have to share its proceeds with the remainder tribes of Nigeria. Wait, no? You don’t agree? What’s that you say? One Nigeria??

      @Hmmmmmm you are very ignorant to make the kind of comment you just posted here. For your information, Yourubas did NOT develop Lagos! It was the white colonial masters and European/British residents that once lived in the state that made Lagos what it is because the state was once the capital of Nigeria. If you are challenging the Ibos to go and develop their states I dare you to point out a Yoruba state that is developed as Lagos and I can assure you you cannot find not even ONE!

      April 6, 2015 at 9:33 pm

      Lololol….as usual Igbos getting mad when the TRUTH is presented to them. They only want people pampering them and listening to their Biafra stories how they are discriminated against. Never once, did they have self reflection. Obviously, comprehension and acceptance is the problem here. I didn’t say Yorubas don’t live in other states. The fact remains, there’s a high number of Igbos living in Yoruba states than the other way around. Since Lagos is a sensitive topic, and all of a sudden it belongs to oyibo people just to digress from the truth. So, what about ondo state. If these Yoruba states are not developed why are you guys coming to settle there then? You can’t compare the number of Igbos who has lived and settled down in all of ondo state to Yorubas who settled in places like Anambra or owerri. Answer the question instead of speaking out of emotions.

    This day is a south south paper, the Oba did not give such interview. We ought to be careful what we publish at such sensitive times. Linda ikejia too tried to pull a similar stunt over the weekend by inciting people with Biafra babies pictures. That is a new low. An Igbo man has been the commissioner of finance in lagos for many many years now. What other non-SW state has a Yoruba person in their state government. I am sure the Oba will sue the paper and take it to the cleaners at the right time. Nduka is an idiot. He hardly pays his employees and he pulls a dangerous stunt like this….he and koro at work.

      As long as you can’t forgive and reconcile you will continue to carry a negative emotional weight around. That is very unhealthy. What is done is done, that was the past, move on…this is a new world. Many northerners have been slaughtered by BH recently, we don’t see any grudges or eternal blaming. Faka patience jonathan is killing more igbos as we speak j. Rivers state,what would you say to that. Thousands if Ukrainians have been killed recently, 154 high school student just got murdered last week.. People die, life goes on. Biafra Lessons have been learnt, move on! Look for a fine Hausa or Yoruba chick, marry her-but move the hell on!

      April 7, 2015 at 1:23 am

      Wale, the difference is that BH are Hausas killing themselves, while the Civil war is Nigerians killing innocent people who asked to be out of a state that did not want them. The later is more severe than the later. Healing apparently have not taken place because the killing have not stopped even after the civil war. It has become periodic even after the war. Remember BH started with Igbos. The discrimination have not stopped either.

      Stop telling lies….The commissioner for finance in Lagos state is Mr Ayo Gbeleyi. ….how is he an Igbo man?
      Lagosians are just bitter that 2 non-yorubas got elected into the national assembly representing Lagos state…..If it’s unconstitutional please contest it in court.
      APC is just a joke…..clamouring for change …..We want change in Lagos state too…..APC is another form of PDP even worse…..you think you can win by bullying and threatening violence?

      If Buhari is an in corrupt non-biased leader as you preach…then he should not punish Lagos because their governor is in the opposition party.

      This lie that ibo’s are free to settle in yoruba states when yoruba’s dont settle in theirs is one big lie. There are many Yoruba’s in Rivers State which is an Ibo+ ijaw state, am Ijaw by the way and we do not discriminate against them. I have plenty yoruba friends that were born in PH, BUILT THEIR HOUSES THERE ANd nobody discriminates against them. For your information PH was the political headquarters of Eastern Nigeria. So stop acting like Yoruba’s are the only people that welcome non indigenes. There are even 200 year old established Hausa communities in ph.

      Excuse me bb rivers state IS NOT an ibo state. Maybe you are referring to the ikwerres and other indigenes whose dialects have similarities with the ibos? Anyways, I think it is high time ibos stop chopping all this bs and go back to their own states to develop it. The insults are getting too much imo. I am not ibo and i am pained. If you want to know the real indigenes of a state visit it during Christmas.

      Is the number of Yorubas living in Port harcourt as high as Igbos in Lagos or other Yoruba states? Are Yorubas elected officials in Igbo states or towns? Are Yorubas claiming port harcourt is not an Igbo land despite how multi ethnic it is? And the fact that, port harcourt people don’t call themselves Igbos but just river state. stop getting too emotional and think before typing nonsense.

      you will never know the value of what the Igbo are until you lose us.
      when you know a man past you do not need to throw him to this limit which reminds of him of past and you still expect him to move on just like. This is case for Igbos and if the Igbos are value less why are your guys afraid to let us pull out of nigeria. yoruba travel to UK as prefered place to reside. UK citizens do not harass you the most people do about Igbo people interest.
      There are yoruba indigens in other parts Igbo land and you never see them being maltreated
      in any way. Rather we ensure they are protected and no discrimination .

My point is don’t get peeved when history is thrown at you. You cannot deny the underlining tribal issues in Nigeria and its cause. You cannot wish it away. My grandfather died of starvation in my mothers arms during the war, im guessing if you tell mama “move the hell on” she’ll drive a stake through you. Yes it happened, yes we ought to move on but like I said shouldn’t we know our history instead of sweeping it under the rug… But then again old things have passed away and all things are new… Lol okay maybe I vote for the latter.

    Ambode has always been very respectful to Igbos and other all other tribes. His campaign song centers around the fact that Lagos belongs to us all so I will definitely vote for him and so will my family and friends simply because he has more experience , no amount of propaganda will make us loose sight of the real issues. This is what I hate about Nigerian politics, when you can’t beat your opponent fairly then you result to lies. This is shameful, Thisday is a PDP newspaper so I am not too surprised anyway.

This is our home (at least when I am in Naija) we can’t afford to let it fall into the wrong hands. Voter turnout is very important, we’ve seen what difference a few points can make.

    ThisDay copied freedom online, the rest copied ThisDay! If you read the reports from 3 different newspapers, the whole thing reeks of copy and paste. Let’s be careful. Be cautious about what we report, I doubt he would make such a bold claim, Amean this is an educated man! I don’t think he can threaten a whole ethnic group and if the meeting was yesterday, I sure as hell would have heard an uproar on the streets from the Igbo traders yesterday. All of these just reeks of propaganda to me and you’ve just helped to spread that. APC doesn’t bank on tribalism or religion at the end of the day. But for the benefit of doubt, if he said that then it is highly irresponsible. Let me wait for him to refute this story!

    But what interests me in all of these the most is that, we are mad that an Oba (one man) said a whole ethnic group should not vote a party. Same people condeming the act are the same ones telling the same ethnic group to not vote APC because a man whose son even lost in the primaries as an APC person APPARENTLY said such. I blame the people that started using tribalism as a way of campaigning . I also wonder what people have to say abut the Jimi Agbaje flier that is being circulated to traders about how APC doesn’t work to favour the Igbo traders. Buhari has a lot of work to do in terms of reducing tribalism. If Lagos that is meant to be the melting pot of NIGERIA is this divided, then i don’t know. But please don’t buy into the hype…Lagos for all! Quilox and escape for everybody! TURN UP! #Ambo2015 #LagosDecides

      Sorry for not addressing you by your screen name, I respect women to much. If you recall sometimes last year when ambode did his book dedication and the Oba said Ambode was his guy even before they had the primaries people asked him to avoid being partial, this Oba hasn’t outered a word on politics since then. He is not one to talk recklessly and this purported interview is not the pattern of his “talk”. We have all gone through a year of electioneering in nigeria and we have seen, heard and experienced from the weirdest, to the ridiculous, to wicked outburts, to just plain entertainment. All these people FFK, Fayose, okupe etc what did they do after Buhari won. They all did a 360;suddenly Buhari and Tinubu became their long lost brothers etc. The point I am making is that this seems to be a letter fayose or koro wrote and sent to thisday, nduka the publisher of this day, has never had a relationship with lagos state. In fact, remember Fashola snubbed him a few years ago(can’t remember the details) might have been something to do with one of the many unneccesary awards. Nduka has had it in for Apc since then. In any case, nduka is just another influence peddler would do anything to fund his expensive lifestyle.
      The important thing is that after this very exciting historic elections intelligent Nigerians can now separate the truth from opposing party paid propaganda. We should first ask ourselves the source of the article and then what the sources’ agenda is? Lagos will do much better under Ambode-he has government experience. Voter turnout is very important, we should vote. Lagos belongs to us all and if lagos gets into the hands of bode George and koro, then we are doomed. All those fancy outings that appear on BN etc will become KAPUT!, because the jaguda, Omo Ita street urchins would take over lagos night life. Agbaje cannot handle lagos with bode George and koro breathing down his neck. Then patience Jonathan and the likes, in fact all the pdp losers will make lagos home and they will just be sharing money. Very soon BH will set in…lagos will become a disaster. Is anyone scared, yet?

We are practicing Democratic System of Government and any states or cities can vote for their choices Abeg.
    Oba Of Lagos my be biased towards APC bcos of what we faced in the hands of PDP in SW during the OBJ’s regime, but he can never make such a ridiculous statement.

    The real problem is Jimi, have you seen the tribalistic fliers he has been sharing around in Igbo communities trying to incite Igbo voters. The flier is tittle “THE EVILS OF THE BROOM PARTY” it goes on to try and turn Igbos against the APC. This type of politics is dangerous, it’s like Jimi wants to burn Lagos for his selfish ambition. Why should a politician start sharing fliers claiming opposition party hates a particular tribe? That is evil

    The impression one gets after reading this article is that the Yorubas are doing a great favour to Igbos, by allowing them to live in Lagos.
    Is this true? Thought Lagos, was Nigerian capital, developed with resources from other parts of Nigeria, including the SE.
    I don’t believe the Obama made this statement!
    In fact, no right thinking Nigerian should.
    As for those, who are against the story of Biafra being told, what are you afraid of?
    When the North keep telling the world how they are impoverished, it is important to let the world who marginalized who. Who should be crying wolf.
    Religion and ethnic diversity are two major reasons we are not progressing as we should. The sooner we begin to do something about them, the better. There’s no need pointing fingers. We are all guilty.

      April 6, 2015 at 7:34 pm

      It is a favor. Lagos is part of Yoruba states which became the capital and the melting pot but still doesn’t take away from the truth. It’s like saying just bcos America is now the melting point, it doesn’t belong to the native Americans who were there originally. The truth doesn’t mean you are been tribalistic, it’s simply the truth that many Igbos don’t want to talk about or accept. But want to go around talking about Biafra, using victimization/discrimination card and wrong entitlement. How many northern states have Igbos settled in freely like how they settle in with open arms in Yoruba states? They dare not insult the northerners the way they constantly insult Yorubas. Yet Yorubas are still welcoming. In ondo state that’s not Lagos, Igbos are all over and they’ve been there from generations with no problem whatsoever. Some fled and settled there after the Biafra war. Abuja is claimed by the northerners and they feel entitled to it despite been the capital. Igbos like to talk about how they discriminated against in Nigeria but don’t talk about how close minded they are. How many Yorubas settle down freely in Igbo states? How many Yorubas are elected in your states or towns?

      @truth hurt for comment is the most ignorant comment of all time baby.it is very obvious you havent left lagos.lemme tell you something,lagos was once a capital of Nigeria and so it was developed by the Britons.people from far and wide came to settle down.the igbo people you are criticizing create a big revenue for the state.you see how empty lagos get during Christmas season I dont think the state can afford dat loss if there is a massive migration from lagos.I remember during a roadtrip from portharcourt to lagos the onlyplaces I saw development(mordern houses and facilities)was from port Harcourt to asaba there was nothing facinating in ondo state and ogun state was all bush so if u think igbo people don’t develop deir state thenhunnynyfollow dose peeps todeirirvillages ull be surprised.I’m not igbo bit I think most igbo people are so industrious and they deserve a fair part of lagos because dey contribute a lot to it even more than lagosians so hunny next time try to educate yourself.

      Your analogy doesn’t hold water. You implying that Lagos is for Yoruba people is like saying DC is for Washingtonians? In case you don’t know, an Arizona senator has a say in DC policies, because it is the Federal Capital. Making Lagos a fed capital meant resources from other states were spent towards building it, which made everyone a stakeholder. Just as we all are to Abuja now.

    This is simple- if the Oba didn’t say it, then he should deny it using the authorised channels or office. I can’t believe he didn’t say it just because a blog visitor called it a smear campaign by PDP.

      Following the statement credited to the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, where he was alleged to have threatened the Igbos in Lagos to vote the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Akinwumi Ambode or die in lagoon, the monarch in the statement below made clarification on the alleged threat.

      THE PALACE MAKES FURTHER CLARIFICATION ON THE STATEMENT BY THE OBA OF LAGOS.
      My attention has been drawn to a publication in a national newspaper where HRM Oba Riliwanu Akinolu was alleged to have threatened Igbos in Lagos to make them vote for Ambode.

      Last Sunday, all honorary Eze Ndigbos in Lagos paid a courtesy call to HRM Oba Akinolu. At the meeting the visitors praised the Oba for his fatherly support for and cooperation with Igbos in. Lagos. They assured him of their continued good neighborliness with other tribes in Lagos and support everything that’ll further strengthen that harmony.

      Oba Akiolu on his part acknowledged the enviable performance of Governor Fashola and his contribution to the growth of investments in Lagos. He gave the assurance that he is not disturbed or angry with South-East and South- South votes for President Jonathan as perceived by the Eze Ndigbos. The Obas thereafter called on the Igbos chiefs to show appreciation to Lagos State by supporting his candidate Mr. Ambode for continuity of excellence as they have earlier promised.

      He assured them of his continued support? and assistance where needed and the meeting ended with the traditional breaking of kolas, alligator pepper, and bitter kola and pouring of liberation on the ground. It was within this context that that the tradition of Lagos with regard to the lagoon came up. It was noted that whoever works against the throne and the interest and peaceful co-existence of Lagos would end up in the lagoon as per tradition.

      2.Oba Akiolu stated further that the Igbo people have not betrayed the throne. Lagos has also not betrayed the Igbo people. Lagos has done so much to make the Igbos comfortable and to prosper. For this, we expect reciprocal respect and understanding. The Oba of Lagos prays that the Lagoon and the throne will continue to bless and protect all those who reside and visit Lagos.

      3. Oba Akiolu is the father of all irrespective of tribe, religion or political persuasion. In Lagos, we have an old traditional proverb that relates to the Lagoon. The Lagoon is unique to Lagos. The proverb stresses the need for unity and understanding when you do business in an environment and in this case when you live and do business in Lagos.

      Oba Akiolu prays for peace for the land of Lagos and prosperity for all its inhabitants.

We need a Lagos for US. We need transparency. Jimi Agbaje is the only candidate capable of providing us this transparency.

      This tribal voting system is what led to the disparities in Kano and Enugu. Which yoruba state had such great margins? If the VP had been Amaechi or Rochas, people would have still voted for APC because that will mean there is still senate presidency to aspire towards. Plus GEJ was grossly incompetent and had no interest in leading. Get off this tribal rubbish and face the real world

    • Hmmmmm

      April 6, 2015 at 10:24 pm

      Same applies to Igbos and south voting for GEJ. It’s that simple. Both playing tribal games. But, nobody talks about the northerners voting for themselves. I guess, nobody wants the northerner wrath.

    I certainly do not believe the Oba of Lagos will stoop that low. As a former Police man he should have known better not to use scary means to force his subjects to vote for candidate of his choice period. I clearly urged the Igbo people to vote their conscience on April 11, 2015. Please, please do not allow anybody including the king of Lagos to tell you whom to vote for. It’s your vote use it wisely. As a Lagosian, a Yoruba man, and a friend of the Igbo people, Lagos Nigeria belongs to all Nigerians period. Let us all come together to make it a better place for all. Lagos belongs to the almighty God not to the king of Lagos. The more you know. A word is enough for the wise. I ‘ m just saying.

They are worse than PDP, so I choose the lesser of two evils. Start a business in Lagos and find out just how horrible APC government is. They are nothing but Mafia thugs out to swindle people, they create new agencies almost every month for steal from hard working Nigerians and fund their pockets. When they build roads they put a toll on it, so why are we paying unreasonable taxes? They do not account for the taxes we pay or have proper regulations. They send out touts to harass you daily until you close up your business. Be wise, vote them out, tell them they do not own Lagos or own your soul! Let us have a governor who is accountable to its people, voting them out will show even Jimi Agbaje that Lagosians are paying attention. Enough is Enough, we want change from touts and harassment from area boys! Change from being tear gassed when we protest about putting up tolls for roads that they should build. They enrich only their own pockets. Vote them out!

    April 6, 2015 at 3:48 pm

    Oba or no Oba; the case for Ambode:
    For the 1st time we would have an apc man at the villa in Abuja, the senate leadership and in lagos. All the financial struggles lagos has had because the nation govt under pdp had refused to help lagos with extra assistance would now be certain. Everyone comes and wants to settle in lagos, hence the need for extra resources from the national government. If for anything we need to experience how much better lagos will be with these extra funds and policies.
    Ambode the better of the two candidates will get running from the time he is elected, agbaje will be doing on the job training.

    Agbaje a pharmacist has only owned one corner chemist, that 1 store in his entire professional life, AND he couldn’t even grow that one store into a multimillion Naira outlet, talk less of multiple locations .I am not even going to go into the bit about paying his taxes for that one tiny little store.
    Ambode on the other hand created and engineered the budget and internal revenue generating system that most states in Nigeria have now adopted and some countries in Africa have emulated.
    Ambode is from humble roots, but he is an “igi iwe”,very smart man. Yes, he can’t speak phoneh etc, but if you wake him up at 3am in the morning he will quote you lagos figures, stats and the situation and state of the State. Ambode is highly credentialized. You see he has been well seasoned for this role for a long time. He even went to Harvard to acquire all the necessary skills to augment his buoyant knowledge of public administration. If there is anyone in Nigeria or world for that matter, that knows and understands the inner workings of the lagos state government better than Ambode, let that person come forward. No one! Ambode is lagos in blood and sweat. He is young, able and agile. Ambode will restore lagos and keep it going in the right direction. Forget the Oba-let us face the matter at hand.
    Lagos is too important, precious and complicated for trial and error! For once people should go out and vote!!!
    Bode George, koro and his friend fayose will ruin lagos.

      Dear Wale, now there is an audio and a video recording out, you have suddenly gone silent on that aspect of the matter. I urge you to stop mixing up issues. Irrespective of your political affiliation, what the Oba said was wrong, and everyone (APC, PDP, every well meaning Nigerian) should condemn it strongly and demand that he apologises.

      If you truly cannot see the need for the above, or sweep it under the carpet as the ranting of an old man that should not be taken seriously, then I am afraid the change we seek, and which APC proclaims, is still far away for Nigeria.

      Let us call a spade a spade, and let the right thing be done at all times in fairness to all. That is why our black brothers in America take offence when the word nigger is used by a white, or when they sense racism. You cannot tell them to sweep it under the carpet or to stop being too sensitive, because you cannot wish away decades of hurt. Or a woman who has been raped in the past, to take kindly to rape jokes, with the comedian claiming it was just harmless fun. Please note, words from influential people have started wars in history, and in fact still start killings bombings in the north in our dear Nigeria.

      To truly move forward hand in hand with others, you must take the time and patience to understand them, and attempt to walk.. not a mile, but just a metre in their shoes, at least in your mind’s eye.

      I truly hope and pray for a Nigeria where we are really united. I also pray for our generation, that we do not continue in the ways of our fathers that have brought this country to its knees in tribalistic and ethnic division.

    When women who are breadwinners and widows pay 2,000 to enable them sell crayfish under the sun/rain at Oyingbo ,Oba switched off!

    When gala hawkers were harrased daily Oba didn’t mediate!

    When Tinubu refused to obey the Federal Govt order to remove Lekki Ikoyi toll for using taxpayers money for its construction Oba was silent!

    Where was Oba when each house contributed 2.5 million in Lekki to build my street???

    How come Oba Akiolu now want to cage and drown a whole tribe???????? What insolence?????

    Has any Yoruba man contested in SE and let it be that he wasn’t voted for?

    I never really bothered who rule Lagos but as it come Saturday I will vote Jimi of PDP as it’s obvious they are the only ones who will treat people faily and equitably!

    How did Oba compensate Igbos for voting Tinubu and Fashola all along!

    Now Oba people will vote who suits them and you will do absolutely nothing. Igbos are not objects nor your property so you have no right to coarse them against their choice!

      What compensations were ibos waiting for? The removal of touts or fixed roads are not enough? Or were you selling your votes for money or rice and pasta (as PDP did in march 28)? The safer and better Lagos in the past 8 years is not enough compensation? We will sha hope that tribalism, especially for selfish gains, will end one day

      Sorry dear you missed at nene+ point she was not literally asking for compensation…..she is saying that since the Oba is targeting the igbos to vote for apc, which btw doesn’t make sense as i don’t believe just ibo votes alone is enough. Basically if he is targeting the igbos now to vote for apc as reported if not they would die as he sees it as a favour they must do…then all these while the igbos have been voting for apc and supported fashola what does he have to say then… no compensation for following orders?…..now he wants people to vote against freewill?…what of the Yorubas that support Jimi? and to think people were actually going to support Ambode, JK might just have a chance now……anyways may the best person win

    For everyone’s information, Yorubas did NIT build Lagos State! Lagos development is the collaboration effort of all ethnic regions of Nigeria. Since the state was made the capital of Nigeria before Abuja, all effort to start developing Nigeria by the British commonwealth was concentrated on Lagos and was enhance by funds from the British Government Azikiwe an Igbo man and the first president of The Federal Rebulic of Nigeria. If the Yorubas are pushing down other tribes claiming that “they” developed Lagos State and they are such developers, I challenge them to show to show all Nigerians especially the Igbo they are bitter against, one Yoruba State that is as developed as Lagos!

    • Hmmmmm

      April 6, 2015 at 10:11 pm

      See, you are the ignorant one. Just bcos Lagos is a different ethnic development doesn’t erase the truth. Lagos, is not owner less where it’s in the middle of the ocean, it’s part of other Yoruba states on the map. It’s like saying oh, since Different ethnic groups developed America, it’ never belonged to the native Americans.. No matter how many ethnic groups live in America, it originally belong to native Indians and that’s the case with Lagos whether u like it or not. Anyway, My problem is, Igbos want to freely claim, talk anyhow and nobody holds them accountable. In their states no group can pull what they do yet they will be crying of not belonging. Igbos talk the most about being the best, Yorubas hating them, not liking Yorubas, Yoruba this or that but when Yorubas talk they are quick to attack and cry. It can’t be one sided. I’m not sure if it’s an insecurity issue bcos those who shout the most is more of their problem than the other person or people.

As for the Biafra story, that is the most untold Nigerian story in history and it should be put forefront even more so now that there is a Northern propaganda that will be ruling, let them know they cannot silence my brothers in the East no matter how they try!

    I have never really cared for either Ambode or Agbaje. For one, Ambode got fired (if true) and Agbaje’s primaries was rigged (if true). One thing i’m sick and tired of is the religious and ethnic divide the PDP has been using. Whether or not the oba said this is not the issues, the issue is how have the candidates reacted? Afterall, obas are irrelevant these days, didn’t Jonathan pay a lot of them? Where did he end up? Obas are garrulous and money grabbing people who will say anything but what have the candidates said to relax people’s minds? Ambode has come to talk about every tribe and divide being important to him but all we hear is that Agbaje is sharing tribalistic division flyers to ibos in Lagos. Really? I was beginning to lean towards Agbaje after the debate then oga Fashola came up with the he doesn’t pay tax bit and even though Agbaje denied it, he could show us his tax receipts. I have family that work in LIRS so i know that they treat those receipts seriously so if you don’t have one then you probably paid someone to 419 the report for you (yes the ordinary nigerian worker is corrupt, yet we blame the govt). This made me realize that being an orator doesn’t mean you are a doer. Talk is cheap, show us action. Now tribalism? That is how i started to think the fired candidate might be better sef.
    Also, I have been hearing “Tinubu is a thief” for way too long but is Bode George better? Someone who was planning to go into exile just because Buhari won (a sinner runneth where no man pursueth). What suddenly led to the change of heart where they have decided to take Lagos by force? So federal reserves have been drained and the opposition should face the restrictions of depleted funds but Lagos reserves should now be enjoyed by the same wasters? Both are thieves but which of these thieves will actually produce results?
    Fashola deported ibos, didn’t he deport other yorubas first? Check oyo state and the rest? Where did all the yoruba thugs go? I understand the civil war and all but seriously let us be objective here. If Agbaje wins, will he come back and reward ibos extra? It is this tribal politics now that might be costing ibos the senate presidency seat. Ask yourselves, what can you get from both candidates and their parties track record, not just responding to tribal instigations. How i wish the KOWA woman was running for lagos state governorship self. This tribalistic divide has to stop. Tribe has never been the issue in Lagos, people should using it to do divide and conquer. If it was tax people were complaining about now, i would have said okay it is understandable but remember that when PDP was playing party favoritism, APC needed money for development. Think of the effect a fair federal government will have on reduced taxes in Lagos not this tribal things by obas whose weight carry nothing. I means how MANY obas collected Jonathan’s money? Come on!

    APC this, PDP that, Igbo here, Yoruba there, Muslim here, Christian there….This should never be the major factors in choosing leaders. Both parties contain literally all the different types of elements. So you would just be deceiving yourself if you think you are definitely supporting a specific group.

    I accept that’s our current level as a nation, so I don’t stress much about to trying to convince tribalists, religion fanatics and the likes (who probably make up about 80% of the country). So I am mostly talking to the ‘enlightened’ and whatever’s left of the remaining 20%. What do you do amidst all the ‘confusion’? I’ll give you the answer:

    You are enlightened and thus, deserve no answer from me 🙂 Personally, I just look to vote whoever I feel would ‘actually work and make a positive impact’. And I know we can interpret that differently depending on many many factors. Personally, I voted Buhari at the federal level because I felt the current setup wasn’t working. At state level, I am most likely voting Ambode because the impact of the outgoing administration as a factor has a little more weight to me than trusting the ‘people on the other side’ in this case. But like I said, impact is relative so if you feel there wasn’t enough impact, or Agbaje can even bring more, then feel free to drive straight ahead. But, don’t let any of the these tribal, religious or other similar factors have any impact on your decision. The 20% should be increasing, not dwindling.

    As for the 80% (probably just 50-60% in Lagos though), I acknowledge we are in this together and you likely have just about a bit more power at present. All I just want to request is no violence abeg from ‘you people’.

    Whew!

    All PDP and APC politicians/supporters that have used and are using religion and ethnicity as campaign tools are just a bunch of retards who are too greedy to stop and think about the wounds they’re reopening and the evil seeds they’re sowing.
    The whole electoral process from pre-campaign to swearing in needs to be sanitized and binding rules with hard consequences laid down. Election after election, only those who get into power are winners, Nigeria keeps losing.

      April 7, 2015 at 2:04 am

      #1 my heart isn’t filthy. #2, I have blamed PDP because their campaign tactics during this election has been divide and rule. If it isn’t tribal, it is religion. This is sickening. As a matter of fact, their religious argument made me want the KOWA woman for federal. I honestly wished they had a candidate for Lagos too cause they have been the only ones campaigning fair. Using tribal and religious arguments to get votes whether in the north, east, west or south is ridiculous and just plainly wicked. I very much believe that this obas speech is despicable and because I have igbo people in my family by marriage or people who i just love (family isn’t only blood), I have the political propaganda used in fueling tribalism. At the end of the day if Agbaje wins, won’t he still pay homage to this man? Won’t we see them calling each other family? Will the same Agbaje come back and pay the igbos separately? NO! The british did divide and conquer yet they didn’t make al Nigerians automatic british citizens. This dirty politics isn’t benefitting all of us at all. When 2 elephants fight, it is the ground that suffers and me I have family to protect, i don’t know about you.
      Also, yes I blamed PDP as a party because since the incident, only Ambode came out to speak that he wants a Lagos for all, Agbaje didn’t talk, instead the PDP as a party came out with a whole letter about tribalism and APC. So how did I lie? Wo is playing tribal politics?

Eyes on the prize and the last time I checked, that price is a great country for all of us and our children not for a select few. Do you know how many families have suffered a hit from the tribal and religious politics these parties (we all know PDP did it well) this election period. Who is suffering from the hurtful words now.

    Dear Wale, now there is an audio and a video recording out, you have suddenly gone silent on that aspect of the matter. I urge you to stop mixing up issues. Irrespective of your political affiliation, what the Oba said was wrong, and everyone (APC, PDP, every well meaning Nigerian) should condemn it strongly and demand that he apologises.

    If you truly cannot see the need for the above, or sweep it under the carpet as the ranting of an old man that should not be taken seriously, then I am afraid the change we seek, and which APC proclaims, is still far away for Nigeria.

    Let us call a spade a spade, and let the right thing be done at all times in fairness to all. That is why our black brothers in America take offence when the word nigger is used by a white, or when they sense racism. You cannot tell them to sweep it under the carpet or to stop being too sensitive, because you cannot wish away decades of hurt. Or a woman who has been raped in the past, to take kindly to rape jokes, with the comedian claiming it was just harmless fun. Please note, words from influential people have started wars in history, and in fact still start killings bombings in the north in our dear Nigeria.

    To truly move forward hand in hand with others, you must take the time and patience to understand them, and attempt to walk.. not a mile, but just a metre in their shoes, at least in your mind’s eye.

    I truly hope and pray for a Nigeria where we are really united. I also pray for our generation, that we do not continue in the ways of our fathers that have brought this country to its knees in tribalistic and ethnic division.

      Actually, Ambode already distanced himself from it when it was released.
      “Every group in Lagos will be safe in my hands as governor. I will not discriminate against any religious or ethnic group. It is our Lagos and we must build it together. In my acceptance speech after the primaries I made this note that I will be a governor for all and Lagos is safe in my hands. I want to build on the foundation of unity, peace and progress and development laid by my predecessors. I am your best choice for a Lagos that must continue to thrive. And though tongue and tribe may differ we Stand in brotherhood in Lagos from the smallest ethnic groups to the major ones. We are all stakeholders.

    There is a saying which goes thus: “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. Because of Ambode he went to Mecca and paid groups $250,000 to pray for him. He calls himself the owner of Lagos and declares that nobody can go contrary to what he says. I can see the corruption you people want to fight. He (Oba of Lagos) has ruined Ambode’s career. Never again will Lagosians vote for a party which issues threats to other people irrespective of their tribe… You cannot tell me who to vote for. I cannot sell my children’s future. You people are shouting Change! Change! The change is also coming to Lagos. It is not limited to Abuja. The throne can only be establish by righteousness. The Igbos have not done anything bad by voting the candidates of their choice. You cannot continue to lock up their shops and issue death threat to them by saying that they will die in the water after the election within seven days and then want their votes. You cannot eat your cake and still have it. Thank God Tinubu signed peace accord. Igbos will vote for their choice. Vote for Agbaje..

Wheather u vote for jimi agbaje or ambode does not change the fact lagos belongs to the yorubas.just like tour east belongs to you. Your villages are so undeveloped .but no you are all rushing to lagos cuz thats the capital of wealth developed by the yorubas not any other tribe. I have nothing against thr igbos.but i just feel its high time thry look at their backyard .abi una no wan go home again. Oga o.

      Lagos was not developed by the Yorubas, please pick up your history books.
      Secondly, the East is way more developed than majority of your Western states, don’t argue because we travel along those lines and we see the condition of your western states.
      Lastly, my Igbo brothers should have in Mind that people like @amh and his/her Yoruba follies exist, so please continue to develop your places back home….these people tolerate you but deep down they hate you.
      Also, you can’t blame my people from the SE and the SS for becoming tribalistic, as tribalism is in the core of majority of the northerners and south westerners, an average SE and SS indigene will not be bothered about how a foreigner prospers in their land and will not even pretend or place foolish curses but we see how these Hausa and Yoruba people result to violence and curses when they want it to go their way.

      You dont even know the history lagos as you claim to be yoruba. who told you that yoruba developed lagos. you forgot it stated from the colonial masters. Ask your great grand father they wil tell you the truth. Igbo have huge investment outside nigeria more than any tribe in nigeria. yorubas will not deny that they also have investment outside nigeria. So is what wrong about Igbo person having same investment in lagos and nigeria as you claim one nigeria for all. U need to travel out of lagos to igbo land then you will shut your silly mouth when you come back to lagos. foreign investors in Nigeria like Americans , British, Germans and chinees etc does not mean that their countries are not develop.
      how many yoruba company can employ all yorubas . It is the prayer of every country or state that wants to develop to attract and welcome any investor to boost its economy. yet some yorubas like you are not appreciative of the huge Igbos investment in Lagos. i hope you are not such an idiot or living in the dark world

Barak Obama is from Kanya become the President of the Us how much more a citizen of a country. Oba should as a matter of urgency apologize to Igbo’s and Nigerians in general. I’m from the S.E, my uncle marry a Yoruba, my grandma gave the lady almost all her wrapper that she has been keeping. And I marry a Yoruba too the same thing happened so let’s stop the hate and embrace one another with peace and love. Let’s not side him.

      So what will happen to the spouses and children of igbo people who are not igbo? This is what tribalism causes. Politicians are feeding off our distrust and way of thinking and we are letting them. The british fed off this same division in colonizing us. Hopefully one day we will all learn and grow. That is how my brother in law accused my mother of being tribalistic and told her the yorubas have failed Nigeria simply because she said she has no reason to vote a failed government back in. The woman might have even voted KOWA sef. Politics led to such careless talk to an in law that gave him her yoruba daughter to marry oh. The woman was pained but decided to take it as childish talk from her son. The wahala of mixing religion and tribalism with politics. It leads to careless talks like this where we are instigating a tribe to move back home. What is the way forward Nigeria?

    Are people outraged that he would threaten anyone with death for using their free will or outraged because the audience was Igbo?
    If he threatened these men with death, don’t you think he also threatened a Yoruba audience with death and a doomed afterlife. Biko, this is not about ethnicity just the rantings of a man who thinks he’s a demigod.

    My dear Igbos,

    Don’t risk losing out the second time in a roll.

    The last election has shown that the south south and the south east voting population cannot deliver Lagos to PDP – even with the addition of the PDP Yoruba base.

    #conclusion: Ambo will win with or without Igbo votes.

    The real concern here is that, having voted against GMB at the center, if the April 11 polls reveals a repeat of March 28 voting pattern by the Igbo dominated neighborhoods in Lagos, then the Igbos would have successfully indicated their hostility to the ruling party.

    There might be repercussions (I strongly hope not). Because if Ladipo and Alaba markets are legally filtered, half of the Igbo man’s prosperity won’t make it through..

    Lagos has been good to you. APC has been good to you. Don’t pour sand in your own garri – Buhari said he has forgiven you, Ambo might not!

    Regards
    Adebola
    Aka I love Igbos

    From all what I’ve seen &heard in Lagos abt APC & PDP, it seems that the APC has nothing to offer. Ambode is only riding on the fact that he is in APC and other blindly follow not considering what too much power does to a person talkless of a metropolitan state. He even has problem within his fellow party members.
    Truly, I believe Jimi Agbaje has BOLD IDEAS and is credible for the job. He practices what he preach and I know that from experience. So without mincing words and also in the interest of peace, it is better to vote PDP for Lagos.
    It is BOLD IDEAS
    It is a Lagos for all
    It is Jimi Agbaje
    It is PDP
    vote wisely.

    Igbos go and vote for Jimi Agbaje…. At least he is a yorubal man and you all are free to choose who you want….. This is democracy… A lot of yorubas are voting Agbaje as well….
