A member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adamu Garba has urged Igbos in Lagos State to be responsible and reasonable, and should not provoke things that may affect their peaceful coexistence or opportunities that are not available in their ancestral land.
Garba said the Igbos can’t assume to be the owners of a place where they are visitors doing business.
In a tweet, Garba accused the Igbos of playing the ethnic card in Lagos State.
He wrote: “On the contrary, I like the Igbos more than many here. I want Igbos to be reasonable & responsible. You can’t go to a place to make a living and assume it has become your land against your host. You are still a visitor.
“Most of you are being deceived by those living abroad.
“If anyone is playing an ethnic card, it is not more than you. You do not provoke things that may affect your peaceful coexistence or opportunity that is obviously not available in your ancestral land.
“You must live in harmony & peace with your host & eschew all forms of acrimony.”
