“Abeg, pray for Lagos make e no spoil o, If Lagos spoil, all of us don enter Gbege o – Joe Igbokwe


Joe Igbokwe, the Special Adviser for Drainage and Water Resources to Lagos State Governor, has tied his achievements to his decision to move from his home state to Lagos.

He said if not for Lagos, he would have been chasing lizards in Aba, in Abia State, as a practicing native doctor.

Igbokwe stated this on Friday in a post on his Facebook page.

The All Progressives Congress chieftain noted that Lagos is a state where dreams are actualised.

He wrote, “LAGOS, If not for Lagos, somebody like me, will be in Aba chasing lizards to use as a native doctor. LAGOS….

“You come to Lagos with a nylon bag and go back to Ibo land with Rolls Royce.

“Abeg, pray for Lagos make e no spoil o, If Lagos spoil, all of us don enter Gbege o…

“Musings of a grateful South Easterner living in Lagos.”

Igbokwe’s remarks on Lagos was coming barely 48 hours after he hinted that the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has visited the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, in France.

The PUNCH earlier reported that Tinubu had on Monday, left the country for France.

Igbokwe, who is a former spokesperson for APC in Lagos wrote, “While they are on social media abusing everybody, Governor Wike goes to France to meet Asiwaju.

“Abuse, calling names, hate, and bigotry are no strategy. They hated and abused PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) since 2015 and now they have transferred the aggression to Asiwaju. We wait and see.”
