PDP Chieftain and Director General of the Heritage Centre, Dr Katch Ononuju,took to his Facebook page and have this to say:
I am igbo and a lagosian like Zik, Tinubu, Awo and Lai Mohahammed.
My parents are from Nkwerre in IMO state,
Zik hailed from Onitsha, Awo from Ikenne in Ogun state, Tinubu from Osun and Lai Mohammed hails from Kwara state.
All these people came from different states of Nigeria to contribute in the development of Lagos.
If Nigeria refuses us Biafra, they can not refuse us being Nigerians. All my children were born and raised in lagos and I know what the law says about who they are.
Don’t let the rhetorics of a weak man fearful of your competitive capacity unnerve you . I am a Nigerian and I understand that citizenship is a right. It is not a privilege.
Democracy and competition has brought home the full import of a federation in a democracy. Competition is the reason for their unease. The laws protects our advantage despite their words.
