Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has disclosed how Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the party made a lot of Igbo people billionaires in Lagos State.
Igbokwe said that Tinubu persuaded his Igbo friends to invest in Lekki Corridor, some years ago.
The aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, said Tinubuâ€™s persuasion led to a lot of Igbo people investing in Lekki properties.
According to Igbokwe, Igbo people who followed Tinubuâ€™s persuasion are now billionaires.
He stated this in a Facebook post titled: â€œHow Asiwaju BAT created many Igbo billionaires in Lekki Corridor Lagos.â€
The post reads: â€œIn 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.
â€œASIWAJU spoke to some of his Igbo friends in Lagos and told them that LEKKI will be the new Lagos anytime soon. He told them: â€œIf you have the money go and buy property there and you will not regret itâ€.
â€œASIWAJU 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.
â€œHe sees what others cannot see. He plans ahead, e sows the seed. He keeps his friends and his head when others are losing theirs; he loves humanity. He creates and build leaders everyday. He hunts for talents with passion and grace. He loves other Nigerians. He loves Nigeria.â€
