Members of a group, the Igbo Movement, yesterday embarked on a roadshow to campaign and mobilise Igbo traders to vote for the Lagos State All Progressives Congress’ (APC’s), governorship candidate, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Saturday.
They moved from Ogudu to Ojota and Mile 12, dancing, singing and distributing flyers to the Igbo in the areas. They sensitised them on the need to vote for Sanwo-Olu and other APC candidates for the house of assembly election.
The Convener of Igbo Movement, Chris Onyekachi, said the essence of the roadshow is to support Sanwo-Olu and ensure that the Igbo vote massively for him and other APC candidates in Saturday’s poll.
He said: “The essence of this roadshow is to show that the Igbo Movement in Lagos State is supporting the incoming governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, because we believe in the political ideals of our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We believe in continuity. That was why the Igbo in Lagos gathered in my house this morning to support Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Obafemi Hamzat, so that on Saturday we will vote for them. We will vote for the incoming governor and other APC candidates.”
Onyekachi added: “You can see that Igbo elders from the 20 local governments and 37 local council development areas (LCDAs) are here. We are taking this roadshow to the markets where our people are trading to motivate them to come out en masse on Saturday and vote massively for Sanwo-Olu and other APC candidates.
“The Igbo are supporting APC. This is what is happening. You can see the crowd yourself.”
