The leader of Ndi Igbo in Lagos and Special Adviser for Drainage and Water Resources to Lagos State Governor, Joe Igbokwe has applied to the Igbo people in the state to vote massively for the All Progressives Congress, Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu on February 25 election saying that it’s time to compensate Tinubu for the good deeds they got from him.
Igbokwe made this appeal during the endorsement ceremony of the APC Presidential candidate and Lagos State gubernatorial candidate at the Governor’s Campaign Office on saturday in Lagos.
While evaluating their achievements, Igbokwe said that the investments and businesses the igbos have in lagos cannot be found anywhere else, adding that it is as a result of the gate that Asiwaju opened to them.
He said, Tinubu does things for people irrespectives of tribe, “he does not know East, West and North and he is not a candidate of Southwest but that of Nigeria.”
He pointed out that the kind of structure Tinubu has across Nigeria shows “he is the man to beat”.
The Commissioner, therefore, promised the igbos would not fail, noting that Tinubu will succeed Buhari as the President of Nigeria.
The Deputy Apex Leader of Ndigbo in APC and Member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon Jude Idimogu also urged the Igbos to garner minimum of 5 million votes for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Idimogu stressed that the state has 7 million plus voters, becoming the highest in Nigeria according to INEC’s position.
He said this vote has become necessary because Lagos has been good to them since the administration of the candidate when he was the Governor of the State.
“We must give Asiwaju Bola Tinubu a minimum of 5 million votes. All eyes are on us. Let us make sure we support Asiwaju.
“By INEC’s position, Lagos State has 7 million plus voters and it is the highest in Nigeria.
“Lagos has been good to us all; Let us support APC from top to bottom,” he said.
