Following the uproar that arose from the recent anti-Igbo remarks by the
Oba of , President-elect, Gen. Buhari has appealed to Igbos in state to bury the
hatchet and vote for in the April 11th
governorship election in their own interest, saying they will benefit
from his government if they do so. According to him, all tribes are well

represented in Lagos state and there is no Northern or
Southern Nigeria, we have only One Nigeria. Gen Buhari said this while
campaigning for APC Governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode in Lagos
yesterday April 7th.

“I admire what your governor has done in
terms of mobilising revenue to sustain Lagos development. I have a lot
of respect for Governor Fashola for his hard work, commitment to the
state and the country. There is no doubt that Lagos is a mini-Nigeria.
We are all here and it has been mentioned by previous speakers that
everybody (tribe) is adequately represented in Lagos. So, I assure you. If you vote for the
continuity of APC in Lagos, you stand to gain more. It is in your
interest that you vote for the APC. Please when you go home tell your
neighbours, relatives and even the opposition to please bury the
hatchet. Let them fall in line and vote the APC. When we were coming in our bus, Fashola
told me how Lagos State had been spending to maintain the federal
infrastructure here such as buildings, roads and other institutions. I
had promised before that if I won the election and became the President,
I would make Lagos my priority. Governor Fashola is already holding to
me to that promise so I would like the incoming governor to listen
carefully and make sure he makes me honour my undertaking.” he said
