Some Igbo Communities in Lagos State have officially endorsed the PDP’s Governorship Candidate, Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran and his running mate, Ms Funke Akindele, ahead of Saturday’s election.

Leaders of Ndigbo declared their support for Adediran at an event tagged “the Igbo Communities in Lagos Official Endorsement of Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran (aka Jandor).

Eze David Nwosu, the Eze NdIgbo, Ikorodu North, who spoke on behalf of the Council of Ezes Ndigbo and the Igbo Communities in Lagos State at the endorsement in Oshodi-Isolo area, said the Igbos had declared support for Adediran.

Nwosu, who raised the hands of Adediran jointly with other Ezes in attendance, briefly said, ” Ezes NdIgbo and Igbo communities in Lagos State endorse Jandor.”

Responding, Adediran described his Governorship battle as the Lord’s battle, and expressed confidence that with the support of the people, the state would celebrate freedom by March 11.

“This battle is beyond physical. By this time next week, all of us will be out from under the oppression of that government. The battle before us is about coming out en masse to vote.

“When they (APC) are having godfather, Jandor holds on to God the Father, we will call on Him and believe that He will heed our cry.

“The days of APC in Lagos are numbered. Next week we will put an end to its existence in Lagos. Please, make no mistake.”

“Put out the votes, I am ready to protect it. I am ready to deploy security both conventional and unconventional for next Saturday’s elections,” he said.

Describing what happened at Feb. 25 Presidential elections where PDP lost as inconsequential, Adediran said that he was determined with the support of God and the people to win Lagos State.

“From May 29, you will have a governor that understands that your coming into Lagos is to add to our prosperity.

“If anybody says today that Lagos is a rich state, it is because of your contributions in Alaba International Market, as well as in Ladipo, Aspanda, Trade Fair and other markets.

“We are the owners of this land. Everything that will bring prosperity, we will encourage it,” he said.

According to him, Igbos should remain calm as he is poised about giving them a conducive environment for ease of doing business.

He promised to stop the difficulties associated with the Ndigbo businesses in the state, while also pledging to run the government with them.

Adediran said that he had long been identifying with Ndigbos in the state, saying that the forthcoming election was for the freedom of residents of the state.

“Tell everybody that we are going to provide enough security, both conventional and unconventional.

“We will be our own army, we will protect our votes and ourselves in this election,” he added.
