The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu met with the leaders of
Ohaneze Ndigbo group led by Chief Ralph Obioha, chairman of the
Caretaker Committee, to resolve issues bordering on the threat he made
to the Igbos resident in Lagos concerning tomorrow’s governorship
election and his demand that they vote for his chosen candidate, APC’s
Akinwunmi Ambode, or be ready to swim in the lagoon…:-)
According to The Sun, the Oba said people were
just making a mountain out of a molehill. He explained that he had no
hard feelings towards the Igbos in his kingdom, adding that majority of
them who are traders use his shops at Isale Eko. He pleaded that the
Igbos should just respect his feelings as he sees Ambode as a son who he
wants to see in power. The Oba who had to break his siesta to meet the
Igbo leaders said everything would be settled after Saturday’s

On their part, the Igbo leaders promised they would not hold any grudge or animosity against the Oba.

Other Igbo leaders at the meeting included Chief Onwuka Ukwa (Ebonyi
State); Chief Haruna Ajah (Ebonyi State); Chief Ignatius Okamene (Imo
State) and Chief Mrs. Pat Udoye (Enugu State).
