The uproar caused by the Oba of Lagos’s alleged threats to Igbos residents in Lagos before the keenly contested gubernatorial elections in Lagos state seems to have dissoluted as an Igbo group in Lagos known as the Igbo Progressives Leaders Council (IPLC) is reaching out to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode openly. 

The group which drafted a seven-point agenda for the governor, sought his cooperation in their quest to join hands with him to take the state to greater heights.

The publicity secretary of the IPLC, Dr. Harris Chuma, announced the agenda at the post-inauguration dinner and thanksgiving lecture held in honour of Ambode in Lagos on Sunday.

The group asked Ambode to protect the lives, properties and investments of Igbos in the state. They also asked for a place in the new government.

Chuma said, “The newly inaugurated government will continue to partner with Ndigbo in moving the state forward such that the Ndigbo in the state will continue to have a place in the government and civil service.”

Ambode, who wasted no time in appointing key staff in his administration, two days ago, announced Tunji Bello as secretary to the state government, Samuel Ojo as the chief of staff, Abiodun Bamgboye as the principal private secretary, and Habib Aruna as the chief press secretary.

Meanwhile,  Oba Akiolu has cautioned non-indigenes residing in Lagos state to conform to certain modes of conduct as expected by their hosts.
