Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Anya Ndigbo, Dr. Uma Eleazu, has reacted to Bayo Onanuga's Anti-igbo Comment. According to him, Igbos are in Lagos to earn a living and to contribute not to cause a war or fight, adding that Igbo is not in any battle with the Yoruba for Lagos.
He made this statement at the delegation of the Former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, in Lagos
In his own words, Uma Eleazu said "There is a development we noticed in the last election, it turned out to be a do-or-die affair. If you do a content analysis of the just concluded elections, the words that were used were worrisome.
"The Igbo people are not in Lagos for a war or a fight. We are in Lagos to earn a living and to contribute to the development of the place where we are making a living. Some faceless people are going round fomenting trouble for Igbo people.”
