Politics An Igbo Man can be Governor in Lagos- Umeh



Campbell Umeh, leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Lagos chapter believes an Igbo mam can be governor in Lagos state.

During an interview session with PUNCH, Umeh who was APGA governorship candidate in Lagos in 2003 said he believed an Igboman can be governor in Lagos , "I believe it 100 per cent. I was born and raised in Lagos. If you are born and bred in a place and you see that the place is not well run, what do you do? You go for the government. That was why I ran in 2003. It was my candidacy that made them pick two Igbo people to be part of the government in Lagos – Ben Akabueze and Joe Igbokwe. It was just to deceive novices that Igbo people are in government. Except the Awori, nobody owns Lagos. Most of the people claiming Lagos came from nearby Yoruba states".
