Some of Igbo-Lagos dwellers were of recent deported back to Igboland (Onitsha to be precise), though most of them are Ebonians who are currently finding it difficult to make both ends meet, it was only one out of the five Igbo governors that reacted to it.
I hereby ask if governor Elechi of Ebonyi State did not hear of the illegal trend or that he did but was busy carrying out his duty.Whatever he was busy doing that made him to have acted nonchalantly is no excuse not to have reacted badly to this. Could it be that the octogenarian is afraid of Mr. Fashola of Lagos State!
To the eastern governors and especially the Igbos, if we continue this way, I bet you that we will never have our feet strongly standing on Nigerian soil. To Mr. Fashola, I dare ask; don't you think that what you did might cause ethnic war among Nigerians.
When did it lawful for a governor of a state to deport a particular tribe whom he thinks not doing well wherever they are residing? If you are of the opinion that those deported Igbo race were destitute here in Lagos, and you therefore were trying to get Lagos State get rid off fugitive and vagabond, then you should have also deported the Yoruba counterpart as well.
But because you, Mr. Fashola is having a skeleton in your cupboard, you couldn't. Am not talking about the impossible fugitives of Lagos State, am talking of those from other western state-like Osun, Oyo, Ekiti, Ondo etc. What stopped you Mr. Fashola from deporting your own people from the Nigerian London-Lagos?
As if you will ever get hood-lumps off Lagos state, you were only marginalizing Ibo right in the name of cleansing Lagos of destitute but I still don't blame you because Ibos have refused to stay-back in their house and develop their land, though if Nigeria is to become one, Mr. Fashola has illegally committed a serious crime that if not yet signed into law, should. Ibos! can't we learn from these? it is high time we did!
