Nonsense lie, Igbos didn’t develop Lagos – Fani-Kayode knocks Ohanaeze President, Iwuanyanwu

Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister, has rubbished the claim by the Ohanaeze President-General, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu that Igbos developed Lagos State from swamp to a mega city.

Fani-Kayode described Iwuanyanwu’s comment as a specious lie and a disingenuous nonsense.

Iwuanyanwu had said Igbos are “the pioneers” and “heroes” of modern Lagos State.

He said Igbo forebearers made parts of the state habitable from a swampy area.

Reacting, the All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain insisted that Lagos State was never a slum before the Igbos came.

Posting on X, Fani-Kayode wrote: “This is nothing but a specious and self-serving LIE.

“It can best be described as disingenuous nonsense!

“FACTS: Yorubas are NOT “political rascals”.

“Lagos is NOT “no mans land.

“Binis did NOT “found Lagos.

“Lagos was NOT “a slum before the Igbos got there, do not let the historical revisionists fool you!”
