The Eti-Osa Heritage Organisation (ETHO) has decried what it described as the “marginalization” of Eti-Osa in appointment of members into the new Lagos State Government Executive Council.

According to a statement signed by leaders of the group on behalf of the community, the 12 Eti-Osa representatives in the list of 39 nominees sent to the Lagos State House of Assembly for screening and confirmation were not indigenes of Eti-Osa Community.

The statement, signed by senior lawyer and the ETHO President, Mr. Adewale Sanni and its General Secretary, Oloye Okunmoyinbo expressed concern that Eti-Osa was “deliberately being marginalized by the powers that be in Lagos State despite its contributions to the revenue generation, growth and development of the state.”

The organisation called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to redress the anomaly and consider re-submission of the actual names of Eti-Osa indigenes earlier sent to him by the Eti-Osa community.
