Special Adviser to Lagos Governor on Drainage and Water Resources, Joe Igbokwe has claimed that former Lagos state governor and the current National Leader of All Progressives Party, (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has transformed many Igbos and other tribes into billionaires when he advised them to buy properties in the Lekki area of the state when it was still virgin land.
Igbokwe who is a chieftain in APC, shared this thought in a post shared on his Facebook page titled ‘How Asiwaju BAT created many Igbo billionaires in Lekki Corridor Lagos’. His post reads;
”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. He sees what others cannot see. He plans ahead . He 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.
