A group known as Ono Eko Pataki, on Thursday, expressed worry that Lagos State has been ensnared, captured and held in unbelievable serfdom insisting that it is time to reclaim the state in 2023.
In a statement titled: ‘Lagos: Time for a new Order’ the group urged true Lagosians to close ranks ahead of the 2023 general elections saying “a lot is wrong with the governance of our state.”
The statement, signed by Chairman of Ọmọ Eko Pataki, Chief Olabode George; Major-General Tajudeen Olanrewaju (retd), Mr Gbadebo Dallass and Prince Uthman Shodipe-Dosunmu, reads: “This is perhaps the most critical year in the checkered history of the Nigerian Union. As 2023 draws nearer, we move closer to the great unknown.
“The horizon is hardly defined with clarity. The partisan space appears confounding and conflicting as the old and the new protagonists jumped into the fray for another quadrennial ritual. There is that feverish hurry everywhere to snatch the greatest spoil.
“But surely we can’t continue like this. We must make a new turn for the greater good of our nation.
We must change our narrow vision for a more embracing national accommodation. We must swing towards a more progressive, sincere, genuine democratic union. Nigeria can be a better place. So is our Lagos.
