2023: Lawmaker Seeks Ndigbos’ Support For Tinubu

A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Oshodi-Isolo Constituency II, Hon. Jude Idimogu has called on the Igbo communities residing in the state to support the aspiration of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to become the next president of Nigeria in 2023.

Speaking over the weekend at the 2021 Igbo Day celebration held at the Ejigbo Mini Stadium in the Oshodi-Isolo area of Lagos, Idimogu explained that his prayer for Tinubu is to become the next Nigeria president.

While noting that Igbos remain one big family and therefore deserve to be recognised and celebrated, the lawmaker maintained that the former governor of Lagos State deserves the office having worked for the nation.

Pointing out that Tinubu is intelligent and full of progressive developmental ideas to lead the country, Idimogu urged Ndigbos to support Tinubu, adding that he remains a detribalised Nigerian, who will work for the interest of the whole country.

Also speaking at the event, the Chairman of the occasion, Celestine Chukwunenye said that the Igbo tribe is rich in culture and traditions, which should not be allowed to die.

“This is a very wonderful occasion, very delightful, beautiful and rich in Igbo culture and traditions.

“It is something I think should be encouraged, and all cultures and traditions in Nigeria should, from time to time, set out a day where they can promote their own cultures for the sake of their children, themselves and future.

“We need this so that we don’t end up losing our cultures to the over-bearing influence of foreign languages and traditions.

“Every effort must be seen to promote the culture, language, customs and traditions of the Igbos. Chukwunenye, who is also the Chief Medical Director, Optimal Hospital, Surulere, Lagos, said.

On his part, the Eze Ndigbo of Lagos State, Dr Christian Nwachukwu thanked the Igbos for their support and urged them to further embrace unity for the development of Igboland and the country generally.

Nwachukwu expressed delight that the Igbos in Lagos came together to celebrate, adding that it was a good way to promote the culture and heritage of the people of the South East.
