National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, yesterday, urged non-indigenes in Lagos State, especially the Igbo, to ignore the Oba of Lagos, HRM Rilwan Akiolu’s death threat within seven days if they did not vote for the APC governorship candidate, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode.
Tinubu assured the Igbo in Lagos that they need not be afraid and that they would never be discriminated against, adding that those who visited the Oba should have come to the political leaders of the state and not the monarch.

Speaking at APC governorship campaign rally at Coker, Orile-Iganmu, Tinubu said: “PDP is full of liars. Their leader in Lagos, Bode George is a liar, the other person, an Igbo man, Ifeanyi Ubah, is also a liar. Ubah knows that we are the political leaders but the Obas are not, ignore whatever they say on politics.
“That was why he planned to visit the Oba of Lagos. We are the politicians, why didn’t he come to us? He held a meeting with some Igbo in the PDP in Sheraton and later went to the palace. He knows that we are the leaders politically, the Oba is not a politician, he welcomes whoever comes to him. We are the politicians, don’t let anyone put you in trouble.”
