Joe Igbokwe had in the past advocated for Igbo presidency in 2023 saying it will help end violence in the region.
Joe Igbokwe, the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Drainage and Water Resources has said it will not be a bad idea if Bola Tinubu becomes the President of Nigeria in 2023.
Tinubu is the National Leader of the APC. Igbokwe said things would be okay if Tinubu becomes Nigeria’s president.
The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Drainage and Water Resources, stated this in an interview with BBC Pidgin.
Igbokwe described the former Lagos State governor as a builder who laid the foundation for the growth of the state.
Asked how Nigeria will turn out with Tinubu as president, Igbokwe said: “If he becomes the president of this country, things will be okay. Things will be fine. He’s a builder. He laid the foundation for the growth of Lagos. And Lagos is now the fifth-largest economy in Africa. So he can deliver.
“He’s a chartered accountant. He worked with Mobil. He ruled Lagos. He has been a senator. He has a lot to bring to the table. You know, the experience cannot be learned from textbooks alone. So, he has a lot to bring to the table. But it’s Nigerians that will decide,” he said.
Nigerians believe Igbokwe is speaking from both sides of his mouth as he had in recent past advocated for Igbo presidency.
