Joe Igbokwe, a senior member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has revealed how Bola Tinubu, the party’s National Leader, turned a large number of Igbo people into billionaires in Lagos State under his watch.
Igbokwe claimed that Tinubu urged his Igbo friends to make investments in the Lekki Corridor several years ago, according to him.
Tinubu’s influence, according to an advisor to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, resulted in a large number of Igbo people making investments in Lekki real estate.
The Igbo people who listened to Tinubu’s arguments, according to Igbokwe, have become multi-billionaire entrepreneurs.
This was stated in a Facebook post titled, “How Asiwaju BAT created many Igbo billionaires in Lekki Corridor Lagos,” which was written by him.
“LEKKI Corridor was crying for attention at the time,” the author writes in the essay. Nobody could have predicted the potential of that investment hub. Nobody could have predicted that LEKKI would become what it is today. ASIWAJU recognized the true potentials and began talking to some people about taking a look at that part of Lagos and putting money into it for the future.
According to ASIWAJU, he spoke with some of his Igbo friends in Lagos and informed them that LEKKI will soon become the new Lagos. He advised them, saying, “If you have the means, invest in real estate in the area; you will not be disappointed.”
Having worked in the real estate industry for many years, ASIWAJU is well-informed about what he is talking about. Those Igbo boys and other Nigerians who followed his counsel are grinning from ear to ear right now. They are multi-billionaires, and the value of their property continues to rise on a day-to-day basis. ASIWAJU BAT has a vision for tomorrow.
