“ I am of the view that you should see the Yorubas that you lived with for years as your brothers more than your tribes people that you see only once or so in a year or not at all for decades. The interest of the APC government led by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and our leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to continue to develop all part of Lagos state is the best interest of all of Lagosians including the Igbos. In spite of negative electoral result from some areas against APC, the government has not discriminated against any section in bettering the welfare of all Lagosian” he stated.

“I can say and I am aware that Governor Ambode has not discriminated against any group in delivery of dividends of democracy. He has not abandoned areas that did not vote for him and his party in 2015. The coming 2019 election is time to show appreciation and encouragement for the APC in Lagos State” Senator Adeola stated.
Earlier on Eze Ezebuadi said they decided to come to Abuja to present the award to him for his effective representation of Lagos West Senatorial District at the Senate that they watch regularly national television adding that the voting pattern of the last election was the result of non recognition of relevant and progressive Igbos with long history of working with the progressives of Lagos State.
