Ohaneze Lagos Chapter Explains Why They Voted For Gov Elect Sanwo Olu...

Solomon Ogbonna, the President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Lagos State chapter has said the reason he mobilised people of the Southeast region residing in Lagos to vote for the All Progressives Congress, APC, in last month’s governorship election in the state was to liberate them from opposition politics.

According to him, the solution to the challenges the Igbos are facing in Lagos lay with joining the politics of the ruling party in the state as against playing the opposition role.

He stated this on Saturday in an interview with Daily Independent newspaper.

Ogbonna said, “When you look at what is playing out in the country politically, you will agree with me that there was need to guide our people.

“It is because of the Igbo people and what they stand to gain that motivated us into taking the decision.

“No money exchanged hands. We wouldn’t have done so because there was no need for that. We wanted our people to enjoy their stay in Lagos. So, we wouldn’t cheapen ourselves by collecting money.

“The people intimidating Ndigbo in Lagos are not those in government or influential people, but those who do not have any stake in Lagos.

“I live in Lagos and I know the challenges that Ndigbo have in Lagos. Jimi Agbaje has been my good friend. I have known him before I met Sanwo-Olu. In 2015 when he vied for the same position, I supported him. I travelled overseas to buy materials for his campaign. I attended rallies with him, campaigned with him.

“This time, we decided to move beyond the party and focus on individuals. We have been in opposition for years and we have not fared better. If the party decides not to recognise us after all the support, I would just say it is one of those things.

“I will also tell you that when I met Sanwo-Olu, I saw some leadership qualities in him which I admired. He strikes me as a Christian who has conscience. He has been coordinating youth activities in Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries (MFM) for many years.”

  1. Ah!

    Iyam not understanding ooo.

    Like igbos voted for APC in Lagos 😂😂


    1. Dont mind them, liars! They didnt even vote at all. There was voters aparthy in Lagos. Most people decided to stay away from the polling units,this one is now out saying trash. And so many of them travelled to their home towns to vote. Don't worry Sanwoolu doesn't need you pple or your purported support.

  2. I read lies in your words Solomon Ogbonna. If you and all Igbos unanimously agreed to vote for the ruling party in Lagos which wasn't a bad thing or idea, then why was the attacked on Igbo residential areas that very day? We saw places like Okota, Odofin and so been attacked by some unscrupulous element, and votes destroyed.

    The election in Lagos is over and the opposition isn't challenging the outcome. I hope you get the desire result as you pointed out in your words.

    1. Don’t worry, you will continue ranting about APC’s wins in Lagos and other parts of the country with your unfriendly grammar everyday. You sense lies in his assertion but yours is the truth right? You have not told us about your unforgettable lies about what happened to el-Rufai which you are shying away from after public shame on you. Next you will start telling us about Saraki smarter than Tinubu.
      Your comment here doesn’t even speak to Ogbonna’s premise of thought yet you are crying over nothing. The opposition isn’t challenging the outcome because the loss was very glaring and convincing.

  3. The Epileptic thinking of some zoological friendly people on here is so appalling.

    Put them on a platform and they become clueless, all they can do is type from their fingers and not their brain.

  4. Don'afraid. We know you all voted for PDP but the peoplpeople's candidate won.
