Mr P of P-Square Mr P of P-Square

Peter Okoye of P-Square fame has spoken up about the tribal issues that have characterized the governorship elections in Lagos State.

The veteran singer in a tweet noted that two dominant tribes in Lagos State, the Igbo and the Yoruba, do not hate each other, saying that Nigerians must realise that politicians do not want the best for them no matter what tribe they belong to.

According to Mr P, the youth must realize that they are been used by politicians who use them for ulterior motives why noting that he is an Igbo man who is married to a Yoruba woman.

“I am an lgbo man married to a Yoruba woman! Igbos do not hate Yorubas. Neither do Yorubas hate Igbos. Politicians are using tribes as an excuse to cover their evil.

“They don’t like you whether Igbo or Yoruba. They only care about their pockets. Be wiser,” he tweeted.

Peter, popularly known by his stage name, Mr. P, made the call on Wednesday following the fire outbreak at Akere Spare Parts Market in Olodi-Apapa, Ajegunle, Lagos.

Yet-to-be-identified persons were said to have set ablaze the market dominated by Igbos, with property worth millions of Naira destroyed over political reasons.
