Tinubu’s campaign spokesman Bayo Onanuga warns Igbo against ‘interfering’ in Lagos politics

Igbo in Lagos were forewarned against 'interfering' in state politics by Bola Tinubu's spokesperson, Bayo Onanuga, on Saturday night.

Onanuga, "who serves as the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council's director of media and publicity, sent out the alert using his official Twitter account, @aonanuga1956.

"Let 2023 be the last time that Igbos interfere with Lagos politics," he remarked. "Please avoid a repetition in 2027. Lagos is similar to Anambra, Imo, or any other Nigerian state. Neither Federal Capital Territory nor No Man's Land apply here. Yorubas live there. Maintain your privacy."

"Ethnic tensions reportedly plagued Lagos in the days leading up to the governorship election," according to The PUNCH.

Olusegun Osoba, a former governor of Ogun State, "earlier cautioned Lagos residents of Igbo extract against turning the election into a tribal matter."

According to him, "With racial epithets directed at locals, the tribal movement on social media has gotten hot."

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the state's current governor, and Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party's candidate for governor in Lagos, "have both been embroiled in the web of anti-ethnic animosity."
