Lagos State APC governorship candidate Akinwumi Ambode on Monday responded to Oba of Lagos Rilwan Akiolu’s death threats against Igbo leaders.
In a statement obtained by Premium Times, Ambode said:
Every group in Lagos will be safe in my hands as governor. I will not discriminate against any religious or ethnic group. It is our Lagos and we must build it together.
In my acceptance speech after the primaries I made this note that I will be a governor for all and Lagos is safe in my hands. I want to build on the foundation of unity, peace and progress and development laid by my predecessors.
And though tongue and tribe may differ, we stand in brotherhood in Lagos from the smallest ethnic groups to the major ones. We are all stakeholders.
