The South East/Igbo APC Progressives Roundtable (SIAPRO) has appealed to their Yoruba brethren and compatriots in Lagos State to overlook any provocations, disrespect, or insults that they may have endured from the recent election cycle in the state.
Addressing a press conference Tuesday in Abuja, the convener, SIAPRO, Uche Diala, said Lagos State is “no less Yoruba land as Anambra State is Igbo land and just like Lagos is not a no man’s land, the way Ebonyi State is not a no man’s land.”
He said any contrary view is as irresponsible as provocative and unacceptable in the interest of societal and national development.
According to him, Igbo have been known for ages to be noble guests who add value to their hosts in a symbiotic relationship and have never been known to be a burden to their hosts across in Nigeria and elsewhere in the world.

He noted that nowhere else in Nigeria is that bond of friendship, deep integration, and all-round success more pronounced and enduring than in Lagos State.
