Joe Igbokwe, Special Advisor to the Lagos State Governor on Drainage, has announced that President-elect Bola Tinubu will stay Nigeria’s president until 2031, following which he will give over control to a northerner who will lead the country until 2039.
Igbokwe, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, remarked this in response to a comment on a Facebook post.
According to reports, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Special Olu’s Advisor posted a post on his official page stating why Igbos in Lagos should back the governor’s re-election to a second term.
According to him, the president-elect and former governor of the state had supported prominent Igbo businessmen in Lagos, stating that voting for Sanwo-Olu would be a pay back for Tinubu’s gesture over the years.
He wrote, “President-Elect ASIWAJU BAT is a good friend of the Igbo and he did his best for prominent Igbo business men and women in Lagos including me.
“This is payback time and we should do this by voting for GOV SANWO OLU en-mass on March 18.”
However, in what looks like a disagreement to Igbokwe’s post, a follower Ejike Akunna stormed the comment section to ridicule the APC chieftain.
Ejike wrote, “Dash him your wife and daughters and enthrone him as your family deity. That’ll be adequate payback”.
Angered by Ejike’s comment, Igbokwe declared that despite anger and hatred being meted at Tinubu by Southeast people, Asiwaju would rule the country for eight years and hand over to a northerner, ruling out the possibility of Igbo presidency.
His reply reads, “When I see the level of despicable abuses and calling of names coming from the South East young people I run away with the thinking that we Diderot not do our duties as parents. Shame has enveloped me from head to toes.
“Ejike Akunna jisieike, mark my words here: Asiwaju from 2023 to 2031 and another Northerner from 2031 to 2039. We will still be children of anger and children of hate and life goes on. We will be on lookers because we refused to play politics. Dazzol!!!”
