The Lagos State Special Adviser on Drainages, Joe Ibokwe, has sworn that his tribe had no chance of succeeding the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who he said would complete two terms in office and exit by 2031.
Igbokwe accused his fellow Igbo of not “playing the right politics,” saying that Tinubu will return for second term and hand over to a Northerner, who he said would rule from 2031 to 2039.
He described Tinubu as a good friend of the Igbo and that he did his best for prominent Igbo businessmen and women in Lagos, including him.
According to him, it is therefore payback time by voting for the re-election of Sanwo-Olu en-mass on March 18.
Igbokwe was responding to a troll who challenged him for supporting the re-election of Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo Olu .
In a statement today, March 11, Igbokwe said: “President-Elect ASIWAJU BAT is a good friend of the Igbo and he did his best for prominent Igbo businessmen 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.”
Replying, the troll, a certain Ejike wrote: “Dash him your wife and daughters and enthrone him as your family deity. That’ll be adequate payback”.
Igbokwe, who was clearly angry over the statement, said: “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 did 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 onlookers because we refused to play politics. Dazzol!!!”
