The traditional ruler of Ndigbo in Mushin area of Lagos, Nigeria, Eze Peter Umeh hasÂ called for understanding between the Yoruba and Igbo in the state.
Eze Umeh said this at the 15th Coronation Anniversary of Baale of Papa Ajao, Mushin, HighÂ Chief Olakunle Lawal Arowooye.
He said he was happy that the Igbo and other ethnic communities are living in peace inÂ Mushin and called for more understanding in terms of political appointments in the areaÂ to accommodate more Ndigbo in the state executive council.
â€œWe appreciate the understanding of the state government and the Mushin Council area, butÂ we still want better understanding so that the Igbo will feel a sense of belonging,â€ heÂ stated.
Arowooye thanked the Eze Ndi Igbo for his support and assured the Igbo in Mushin thatÂ they will be accommodated in whatever programmes that could give every ethnic nationalityÂ a sense of belonging.
The Baale conferred Chieftaincy titles on some personalities in the state to commemorateÂ his 15th anniversary.
