President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has urged Igbos in
Lagos State to forgive the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu
for recent comments made against them.
Buhari made the plea on Tuesday, April 7, 2015, during
an All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship rally in
the state.
The President-elect also described Lagos as a home for
all saying that the time had come for Nigerians to look
past ethnicity in the general interest of peace and unity.
Buhari paid a visit to the state on Tuesday to boost the
campaign efforts of the APC candidate, Akinwunmi
Ambode.
“I admire what your governor has done in terms of
mobilising revenue to sustain Lagos development. I
have a lot of respect for Governor Fashola for his hard
work, commitment to the state and the country. There
is no doubt that Lagos is a mini-Nigeria. We are all
here and it has been mentioned by previous speakers
that everybody (tribe) is adequately represented in
Lagos,” the President-elect said.
“Please when you go home tell your neighbours,
relatives and even the opposition to please bury the
hatchet. Let them fall in line and vote the APC,” Buhari
added.
The President-elect also said that Lagos was too
important to the country to become an opposition
state.
