The lingering crisis of confidence rocking the leadership of Igbo in Lagos, which has rocked the ethnic group in the state, may have been finally resolved.
Alhaji Tunde Balogun, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, had moved decisively to resolve the crisis.
The conflict has pitted the Special Adviser on Drainage and Waterways, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, against a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Jude Idimogu.
Balogun met with the duo and other leaders of the ethnic group on Friday night in Lagos where the matter was amicably resolved.

WESTERN POST learnt, at the meeting, which went late into the night, the two Igbo leaders resolved to drop their guards and reconcile in the interest of Igbo ethnic group.
Igbokwe had earlier been widely acknowledged as the apex leader of the Igbo in the state. But Idimogu, the apex deputy leader, claiming to be the most senior elected member within the group, had moved to wrestle the leadership. Idimogu represents Oshodi/Isolo State Constituency in the House of Assembly.
This move has divided the ethnic group down the line in Lagos.
At the meeting in Lagos, the APC Chairman reaffirmed Igbokwe as the apex leader of the Igbo, while Idimogu remains the deputy leader.
