A massive crowd of Ndigbo in Lagos State APC on Tuesday stormed Ikeja for a town hall meeting in support of Sen. Bola Tinubu,  the party’s 2023 presidential candidate and Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the crowd, comprising APC members of Igbo extraction only, converged at the Blue Roof of the Lagos Television (LTV) for the meeting.

NAN reports that the group was made up of Ndigbo from the 20 Local Government Areas and the 37 Local. Council Development Areas of the state.

NAN also reports that it was a carnival of sorts as members of the group were seen in different regalia,  dancing to songs while others were singing and chanting songs in praise of Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu.

Addressing the gathering, the state Chairman of the APC, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi said that the massive turnout of Igbos in APC for the town hall meeting, the party had reassured the party of their commitment and dedication.

“Today is an affirmation to assure the APC that Igbos in Lagos state are for Asiwaju,” the party chairman said.

Also speaking, Mr Kolade Alabi, Chairman of  Bariga and Conference 57, consisting of 20 LGAs and 37 LCDAs in Lagos state, said that the gathering was an attestation that Igbos in APC are solidly behind the party.

Alabi who was represented by the Chairman of Igbogbo/Bayeku LCDA, Mr Sesan Daini said the massive gathering was proof of Igbo support for the APC.

“Lagos state has been good to people of other extractions including the Igbos.  We have Igbo, Hausa in the state cabinet. Therefore, a vote for APC is a vote for development of all,” he said.

He urged them to go to work to rally massive Igbo support for the APC and its candidates.
