The chieftain of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Joe Igbokwe has taken to his official Facebook account to speak about the influence Bola Ahmed Tinubu has in the South West. He recounted the statement made by Comrade Eze Harris Chuma about searching for an Igbo man who can play the role of Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the South East.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu is well known for his political influence in Lagos and South West. His influence earned him the “Asiwaju of Lagos” title and some people referred to him as the godfather of Lagos’s politics.
He referred to names like Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, Babatunde Fashola, Rauf Aregbesola, Babatunde Fowler and how they worked for Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He believes Bola Ahmed Tinubu did the needful to command respect and influence in South West. He looks forward to a day, South-East politicians would put their differences aside and work for the common good of the people.
Do you agree with Joe Igbokwe that South East is yet to produce a politician that can play an influential role as Bola Ahmed Tinubu did in South West?
