Members of Igbo groups in Lagos state who were once in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The group was received by Atesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard which is the support group of Governor Ambode.

Eze Ohazurike who spoke on behalf of the group said: “Our decision to support him for another term in office is based on the fact that he has performed extremely well; we can all see that everything that he has done in Lagos State, no other state has been able to do that.
“He has done very well and there is still a continuation of a lot of things which the Governor is actively implementing. We are here reaffirming our position because we have already endorsed him before now.
“We want the governor to continue his mentoring in all the 20 Local Governments and 37 Local Council Development Areas of the state towards effecting the ongoing development at the grassroots.”
Hon. Seyi Bamigbade who is the state coordinator of Itesiwaju Ipinle Eko Vanguard said: “We assure you that your coming is an indication and testimony to the good things Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has been doing to enhance the standard of living of the people of Lagos State.”
