Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has assured traders of Igbo extraction of their safety in the state.

The governor made this known when he took his campaign to major markets populated by traders from the South-East on Tuesday, March 8.

Prior to his visit, the APC candidate had already been endorsed by the Ndigbo community in the state.

With the governorship election slated for Saturday, March 11, Governor Sanwo-Olu has already been endorsed by popular musicians 9ice and Daddy Showkey.

Sanwo-Olu, at the open forum, promised to ensure the safety of the properties and businesses of Ndigbo in Lagos State.

His engagements with the traders were initiated in response to concerns raised over the safety of properties and businesses owned by South-East traders in Lagos, reports Daily Post.

Sanwo-Olu said at the Trade Fair forum, “We’ll continue to work with your leadership to enhance cooperation and identify areas we can improve on to foster peace and stability. We’ll not be hostile to any community of non-indigenes.

“For as long as you conduct yourselves in a peaceful manner, your safety and security will remain our priority. There’s no need for any law-abiding resident to be scared.”
