National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu on Saturday declared that the insinuation in some quarters that Ibos were planning the political takeover of Lagos State was laughable.
Speaking with journalists after casting his vote at a polling unit in Alausa on Saturday during the governorship election, he described the insinuation as a farce.
‘Here in Lagos, we don’t discriminate against anyone whether it is on health, education and access to every good things of life.
‘If Lagos is not good will they come here? Our own slogan in Lagos is ‘o to pe’ meaning it is time to rejoice. Because we have shown good governance since my days as governor, APC will continue to be in charge.’
‘Mimicking those touting that Igbo will take over Lagos political structure he simply said in Yoruba language that ‘oro ye di e’ meaning it was laughable.
Expressing confidence that the APC governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu would win the election, he said the choice of the party was the best for the state because there was no need for experimental governor.
