It is extremely ungrateful to accuse the Lagos State Government of demolishing your houses because you are Igbo

Reno Omokri said it is extremely ungrateful for anyone to accuse the Lagos State Government of demolishing their houses just because they are Igbos.

Last week, several palatial houses in various estates within Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area were demolished by officials of the Federal Housing Authority for allegedly violating housing and development regulations. Some residents of the area alleged that their houses were demolished because they belong to the Igbo ethnic group.

In a post shared on his Instagram page this afternoon, Reno said Lagos State has, over the years, employed Igbos in public service. He shared a letter from the Anambra State government inviting applications from job seekers and it was clearly stated that only Anambra indigenes should apply. Reno asked if this has ever happened in Lagos State.

He wrote;

”It is extremely ungrateful to accuse the Lagos State Government of demolishing your houses because you are Igbo. Do you know how many Igbos are employed by the Lagos State Civil Service Commission? Thousands! Were any of them fired? In the South East, some Igbo states have dismissed other Igbos as civil servants because they come from a neighboring Igbo state. Has this ever happened in Lagos? Two months ago, Anambra State advertised public service jobs and asked non-indigenous people not to bother applying. Has this ever happened in Lagos? Do you know how easy it would be for the Lagos State Government to replicate what Anambra did? There are over 50 Igbos elected or appointed as Commissioners, Representatives, Deputies and Women and LGA Chairpersons in Lagos. Across the South East, how many Lagosians, or people of South West or North origin, are elected or appointed to government or public service? Yet you are falsely accusing this same Lagos of demolishing your illegal structures because of your ethnicity. What a calamity!
