Lagos Deportation: On The Side Of Common Sense

In the days that has ensued since the ‘deportation’ of 14 Anambrarians, the debate has snowballed into a convoluted tribal argy-bargy, presenting an opportunity for ethnic jingoist and bigots to jump on the band wagon. It was incongruous for some to even think that Igbo businesses and people were being unfairly targeted in what could be the threshold of a pogrom.

However, the wave of internal deportations that the incident sparked is despicable and must be condemned in strongest terms. But then, it was needless to politicize and sensationalize the reintegration - as Fashola puts it - in the manner Anambra State governor, Peter Obi, did.
