The IBILE people of Lagos State, through one of their social cultural organisations, De Renaissance Patriots Foundation, has congratulated President Bola Tinubu on this year’s ‘Democracy Day’, while clamouring for an indigene of the state to be appointed a substantive minister in the event of a cabinet shakeup.

In a statement signed by president of the group, Prince Adelani Adeniji- Adele, De Renaissance Patriots Foundation said: “We have received media reports about a possible cabinet reshuffle by President Tinubu, if true, we welcome any changes that will make his administration more versatile.

“It is therefore our wish to draw the attention of His Excellency to the wishes of most indigenes of Lagos state that an indigenes from any of the IBILE division so appointed by you as a minister be given a substantive and full portfolio, not a junior minister. This will be a good step towards cementing a better relationship with us as well as assuaging the feelings of the indigenes towards being alienated.

“We pray for His Excellency for the energy and wisdom filled with filled with Grace of God to always do the right thing for us and practical steps by giving Lagos State the Ministerial slot that she deserves.

The great strength of Lagos is the unity and understanding that had been its hallmark that bonded the indigenes together during the colonial administration before and after amalgamation in 1914.”
