2023 Nigeria Decides
Lebanese APC Chiefs Bring Another Shade To Debate On Who Owns Lagos
By Onyinyechukwu Chima
A viral video of Lebanese men wearing APC caps and sharing indomie for Nigerians has caused mixed reactions among Lagosians.
Several claims are being made that the Lebanese own a substantial part of Lagos and have been recruited by the ruling party to help fend off the insurgent campaign by Labor Party to change the political dynamics.
Not surprisingly, the tribal sentiments that are shapping the elections in Lagos State were also being brought to bear on the issue as the debate as to who really owns Lagos was again reignited.
Some argued that there is an agenda of Ndi igbo overruning Lagos using Labour Party candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes who is partyly Igbo. However, others argued that if foreigners including Lebanese can be used by the APC to campaign then no one could then fault the legitimate right of the Labour Party candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour as an indigene of Lagos state.
GWG.ng gathered reactions to the development on Twitter.

There’s no way these white guys would leave there without having the impression that they just dealt with animals.
This is why I don’t consider your nonsense about being intelligent and reading books and advocating for a better world as serious as your bigotry. “Igbos are coming to take over Lagos.” But na Lebanese dey share election indomie to you. Imagine being a slave to a Lebanese?
MONEY COMES TO ME EASILY ✨@rachelwithlove_
APC has reduced Nigeria’s worth to nothing!! Why now!! Na Lebanese people dy feed una for una country!!!! With indomie????
Lebanese weaponizing poverty but Gbadebo who can trace his lineage back 3 generations of core Lagosian, cannot contest for governor seat.
I don’t know who needs to hear this..but it’s better you deal with your fellow Nigerians trying to buy or steal your land .. whatever y’all call it. If this Lebanese people take over .. Na white vs black oooo
Those guys would allow a Lebanese to govern lagos state instead of a yoruba man whose mother is igbo.
