We Cannot Have A Lagos Where The Igbo Cannot Stay & Where Markets Are Getting Burnt- Pastor Akinyemi

Speaking out the ongoing crisis in Lagos over the governorship election, A Nigerian professor of political science, Pastor Bolaji Akinyemi said we cannot have a Lagos where the Igbo cannot stay & where markets are getting burnt. He also lament that political decisions in the forthcoming governorship and House of Assembly elections should not lead to war in Lagos State.

He made this statement while speaking at a new conference in Lagos, where he urged his followers to desist from ethnic and religious bigotry among Politicians

In his own words, Pastor Akinyemi said "I doubt if we are going to have an election on Saturday in Lagos if we do not douse this narrative that is gaining momentum. We cannot have a Lagos where the Igbo cannot stay in Lagos, where markets are getting burnt. That is not the kind of Lagos we want to live in.

“We have lived with each other as good neighbours and that must continue. We must not allow anybody to throw spanner in our wheel of progress that we have made as an example to the rest of Nigeria"
