The Lagos State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has noted that an Igbo man will soon be a governor of the state.
Sanwo-Olu’s comment came recently at the National Stadium in Lagos when he was honored by his Igbo friends with the “Ugochinyere Eze Ndigbo” title.
Also, he hailed the business ingenuity of the Ndigbos and their contributions to the economy of the South-West state.
“One day, your son will stand here as the governor of this state, a senator in Lagos or any other top political office,” he said.
“No Lagosian will fight an Igbo man because he is part of us. Lagos will be land of milk and honey to you.
“We know that you are very relevant in this state considering your activities in the area of commerce.”
