Igbo stakeholders in Lagos State on Saturday officially endorsed the PDP’s Governorship Candidate, Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran and his running mate, Ms Funke Akindele.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that leaders of Ndigbo declared their support for Adediran at an event tagged “the Igbo Communities in Lagos Official Endorsement of Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran (aka Jandor)”.

Eze David Nwosu, the Eze NdIgbo, Ikorodu North, who spoke on behalf of the Council of Ezes Ndigbo and the Igbo Communities in Lagos State at the endorsement in Oshodi-Isolo area, said the Igbos had declared support for Adediran.

Nwosu, who raised the hands of Adediran jointly with other Ezes in attendance, briefly said, “Ezes NdIgbo and Igbo communities in Lagos State endorse Jandor.”

Responding, Adediran, who described his Governorship battle as the Lord’s battle, expressed confidence that with the support of the people, the state would celebrate freedom by March 11.

“This battle is beyond physical. By this time next week, all of us will be out of that government suppressing us. The battle before us is about coming out en mass to vote.

“When they (APC) are having godfather, Jandor holds on to God the Father, we will call on Him and believe that He will heed our cry.

“The days of APC in Lagos are numbered. Next week, we will put an end to its existence in Lagos. Please, make no mistake.

“Put out the votes. I am ready to protect them. I am ready to deploy security both conventional and unconventional for next Saturday’s elections,” he said.

NAN reports that the event was attended by various Ndigbo groups and communities in the state.

Some of the Ezes that attended the townhall meeting included Eze Jude Nnaemeka Arinze (Ezigbo of Oshodi Isolo), Eze Joseph Mba (Eze umu okorobia), Eze John C. Nwosu (Ezigbo of Mushin), Arinze Jude Maureen (Eze ndigbo of Oshodi Isolo) and Eze Edwin Orji (Ezigbo of Mainland). (NAN)
