The IPLC proposed “the establishment of a board that will recognize the Lagos Igbo honorary chieftaincy affairs”
In a conference convened by the Igbo Progressive Leaders Council (IPLC) the group disclosed that they presented a seven-point plan to the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode.
Led by Mr. Joe Igbokwe, the Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos State chapter, the IPLC expressed their desire to see a friendly relationship between the State government and the Ndigbo (a group that represents Igbo communities within and outside Nigeria).
In order to facilitate dialogue and collaboration between the Ndigbo and State Government, the IPLC through their Publicity Secretary, Dr. Harris Chuma, proposed “the establishment of a board that will recognize the Lagos Igbo honorary chieftaincy affairs”
Their demands also included “sustained improvement of the road network in the state”. “equal treatment as their Yoruba counterparts”, “compensation for victims of fire disaster in the various markets” and an “end to the harassment, intimidation, and extortion of Igbo by unscrupulous government officials.”
They ended by calling for the new government to listen to the sincere voices of their Ibgo citizens.
