Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Saturday pledged his unalloyed loyalty to Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the ruling party.
According to Igbokwe, Tinubu “made me”.
Igbokwe, Special Adviser to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State on drainage and water resources, hailed the 2023 presidential aspirant as the colossus of Lagos politics.
“Nobody ever passes through Asiwaju BAT’S leadership trainings and ever remains the same again. I have been a lucky man. I am a living witness. Asiwaju made me. I am a proud product of ASIWAJU’S University of BOURDILON. I am not an ingrate, I am not a foolish entity, I am not a betrayer, I have conscience. I will sink or float with Asiwaju, come rains, come sunshine. Please know this and have inner peace. Amen,” Igbokwe wrote on his known Facebook page.
Tinubu has gone on to play an important role in the present administration of Muhammadu Buhari, supporting government policies and holding onto the internal party reins, in lieu of his long-held presidential aspiration. In 2019, he supported Buhari’s re-election campaign defeating the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar.
