Vote Ambode Or Die, Oba Of Lagos Tells Igbos

The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu has
reportedly told Igbos in the state to either
vote for All Progressives Congress
(APC) governorship candidate, Akinwunmi
Ambode or prepare to perish in the Lagoon.

The monarch is said to have made the
statement on Sunday, April 5, during a
meeting with Igbo leaders and monarchs in
his palace, according to Daily Trust.

“On Saturday, if any one of you goes against
Ambode who I picked, that is your end. If it
doesn’t happen within seven days, just
know that I am a bastard and it’s not my
father who gave birth to me,” the Oba
reportedly said.
“By the grace of God, I am the owner of
Lagos for the time being. This is an
undivided chair. The palace belongs to the
dead and those coming in the future. On
Saturday, if anyone of you, I swear in the
name of God, goes against my wish that
Ambode will be the next governor of Lagos
state, the person is going to die inside this
water,” he added.

“For the Igbos and others in Lagos, they
should go where the Oba of Lagos heads to.

When they were coming to the state, they
didn’t come with all their houses. But now
they have properties in the state. So they
must do my bidding. And that is the bidding
of the ancestors of Lagos and God.I am not
ready to beg you. Nobody knew how I
picked Ambode. I am not begging anybody,
but what you people cannot do in Onitsha,
Aba or anywhere you cannot do it here. If
you do what I want, Lagos will continue to
be prosperous for you, if you go against my
wish, you will perish in the water,” the
monarch said.

Oba Akiolu had earlier stated that no
candidate of the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP), which Ambode's strongest
opponent, Jimi Agbaje belongs to, would
win the governorship of Lagos State.
