The Ibile Eko Forum on Saturday, 11 July, 2020, inaugurated the 6 coordinators of the Local Government and Local council development areas as well as the executive members of 42 wards in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, in line with its mission to unify all indigents of Lagos state towards greater socio-political achievements, reports The Gazelle News.com.
Speaking at the low key event organized in 6 batches in compliance with the social distancing regulations, the Grand Patron of Ibile-Eko Forum, Mr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran, charged the new Excos on unity of purpose, reiterating that Ibile Eko is a registered association under the law of the federal Republic of Nigeria.
While agreeing with those who are of the belief that Lagos indigenes are in the minority, Jandor said he “doesn’t think it will be that bad for our population to be less than 10% of over 20 million Lagos inhabitants”, which according to him, it is enough to achieve our common political goal.
He appreciated all well meaning Lagosians for supporting the drive to “form a common front”.
