“I am here to commiserate and show my concern to my brother, Governor of Lagos, over the event that happened some two weeks ago. I’m particularly touched by the level of destruction, which will hurt all Nigerians living in Lagos. This is because Lagos is home to all; as commercial city, it is a place where everyone speaks the same language.

 

“I want to particularly thank Gov. Sanwo-Olu for giving protection to our brothers from the Southeast during the crisis. This is an indication that our people and their businesses are safe in Lagos. We will continue to live as a united country. With all of us working together, we can keep flourishing.”

 

 

Speaking further, Governor Ikpeazu urged Igbos living in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria to continue to abide by the laws of the State and eschew actions that may cause mistrust between them and members of their host communities.

 

 

He noted that the political leaders have learnt great lessons from the recent Nigerians youths protests, saying Governors were now inclined to drive up inclusion in their policies and programmes.

 

Reacting to Ikpeazu’s kind gesture, Sanwo-Olu thanked the Abia Governor for taking the pain to travel down to Lagos from the Southeast to identify with the residents over the violence.

 

Governor Sanwo-Olu promised that Lagos State Government would, as usual, continue to support business aspirations of the Igbo and protect their rights to live in Lagos.
