Lagos Will AccommodateThe Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode in a meeting with the Lagos State Council of Obas on Friday has said that the state is supporting the Federal Government in keeping the unity of the country.

He said that him and the Council of Obas are ready to do everything to support the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and the Federal Government.

“I also want to join the Chairman of Council of Obas and Chiefs in Lagos State to reiterate our support for the Federal Government to keep the unity of Nigeria and also uphold the tenets of the Constitution. We are very happy that all our traditional rulers in Lagos believe in oneness of Nigeria.

“We are happy also that we are very accommodating. We are also happy that we allow people from other tribes to live with us and we are ready to do everything to support the Acting President and the Federal Government in general that every effort they make, we will ensure that Lagos remains peaceful and then Nigeria remains peaceful.

“I want to thank you for your support in terms of security. You are part of the security architecture of Lagos State because without you, we will not get the information we are using to reach out to the police and I also want to thank you for supporting our Neighborhood Safety Corps initiative.

“Like I said, it is about neighborhood safety and we have seen the hands of all our monarchs in the operation of the corps. We believe strongly that we need to put more efforts in the Neighborhood Safety Corps to make sure that this issue of kidnapping and other criminal activities become a thing of the past within the shortest possible time,”  he said.

      Write more in Igbo. We need more of Igbos speaking and writing this beautiful language. Igbo kwenu.
      Lagos is a central city, where all meets but we can’t deny Yorubas of their territory. I love Lagos, grew up there. I speak Yoruba than my native language.

      To Her, Igbo is the new English. Nigerians must learn to read, write and speak Igbo or no election in 2019!

    The law allows every Nigerian to reside in any part of Nigeria. He is not doing anymore a favour if he accepts other tribes. That is the law.

      Igbos want to be able to reside anywhere when it benefits them. But be shouting Biafra to make noise. If you guys are so independent, and can survive on your own why the constant fight to reside in other regions and not your own. Other tribes accommodate Igbos everywhere especially the west. You guys even need to be more welcoming and accomodating to other tribes and even among yourselves in the East.
      Whether people like it or not, Lagos is located in the West and it’s a yoruba region. Even New York that people like to compare that it belongs to everybody bcos of the diversity and different hustle, NY belongs and still run by the early immigrants who arrived there.
      I can understand how the government belongs to everyone but you can’t say there’s no owner

      @Agu Picture this – a man brags loudly to another, I spent 80% of my life earnings and savings to contribute to the building of your house. I have not even started the foundation of mine. Two things can be said about this man, he is either very charitable or very unwise. You decide!

    @Agu & co-travelers. You guys are a bunch of ingrates. When they chase you from the North, let’s see where you’ll be headed. They say Yorubas are dirty, Yorubas are lazy, Yorubas are foolish, Yorubas are treacherous, Yorubas are cowardly. Yet, they will not leave Yorubaland, including the interiors(ilu-Okes). Was it Yorubas that organized the 1966 pogroms, or the 1966 counter coup or even the killings that continue till this day? After the war, was Awolowo the head of state and commander in chief? Why is all the blame on him? Was there any ‘abandoned property’ in Yorubaland? Was it not your so-called neighbors in Rivers that refused to surrender your properties? Why are you mistaking Yoruba hospitality for weakness? I can go on and on? How many other tribes, including foreigners like Lebanese or Indians are thriving in Eastern Nigeria? Don’t repeat the lies that Yorubas don’t travel to other places because we all over the world and doing very well. Please be careful and don’t poke the bear!!!!!
