Igbos Will See The Full Effect Of What They Did With Peter Obi In The Guber Poll In Lagos -Dr Ahmed

The spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum, Dr Hakeem Baba Ahmed has revealed that the Igbos will see the effects of voting for Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi in the forthcoming gubernatorial elections this Saturday, most especially in Lagos State following the conduction of the last presidential election. Dr Ahmed who spoke in an exclusive interview with Vanguard Newspaper said that violence is likely to have a stronger say in major battlefields owing to what happened earlier during the presidential election.

Dr Hakeem revealed that the Igbos would see the effect of their strategy of voting against all the presidential candidates in the just conducted poll, but they didn't vote against Peter Obi and this time around in the gubernatorial elections, it would have a strong effect on the Igbos because violence might erupt if they are trying to vote against the strong holders in their regions.

He said, "I write this material three days before the gubernatorial elections. By this time next week, the potency of the primordial would have been tested. The Southeast (Igbos) which locked out virtually every presidential contestant except Peter Obi, but knocked on every door in other parts of the country, is likely to see the full effect of its strategy. Violence is likely to have a stronger say in major battlefields such as Lagos, parts of South-South and the areas where faith has pitched combatants against each other".
