The Lagos State governorship candidate of the PDP, Jimi Agbaje has stated that the political class in the state does not like the Igbo tribe of Nigeria. He stated this against the narrative that the city dislikes Igbos.
According to Agbaje who has contested twice for the governorship seat, the utterance by the Oba Of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, is still fresh on the mind of the electorate.
”On Lagos and the Igbos: The narrative that Lagos dislikes the Igbos is extremely false. Oh yes, Lagos does not dislike the Igbos, your political establishment does. The royal utterance of 2015 is still fresh on the mind of the entire electorate.”
