Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Drainage and Water Resources, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, has claimed that National Leader of All Progressives Party, Bola Tinubu, made many Igbo people billionaires in Lagos State.
He made the claim in a Facebook post titled, ‘How Asiwaju BAT created many Igbo billionaires in Lekki Corridor Lagos’.
The post read, “In those days Lekki Corridor was begging for attention. Nobody saw the potentials of that investment hub. Nobody thought Lekki will be what it is today. Asiwaju saw the real potentials and began to speak to some people to take a look at that side of Lagos and invest there for tomorrow.
“Asiwaju spoke to some of his Igbo friends in Lagos and told them that LEKKI will be the new Lagos anytime soon. He told them: “If you have the money go and buy property there and you will not regret it”.
“Asiwaju knows what he is talking about because he, himself has been a real estate guru for years. Those Igbo boys and other Nigerians who took his advice are smiling big time today. They are big-time multi-billionaires and their property keeps appreciating everyday. ASIWAJU BAT sees tomorrow.”
