Joe Igbokwe, head of the Congress of All Progressives, APC, has revealed how Bola Tinubu, the party’s national leader, turned many Igbo into billionaires in Lagos State.
Igbokwe said that Tinubu convinced his Igbo friends to invest in Lekki Corridor, a few years ago.
Lagos State Deputy Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said Tinubu’s persuasion led many Igbo people to invest in Lekki properties.

According to Igbokwe, the Igbo who followed Tinubu’s persuasion are now billionaires.
He said this in a Facebook post titled: “How Asiwaju BAT Created Many Igbo Billionaires in Lekki Corridor Lagos”
The post reads: “In those days, the LEKKI Corridor was begging for attention. Nobody saw the potential of that investment center. Nobody thought LEKKI would be what it is today. ASIWAJU saw the real potential and started talking to a few people to take a look at that side of Lagos and invest there for tomorrow.
“ASIWAJU spoke to some of their Igbo friends in Lagos and told them that LEKKI will be the new Lagos soon. He told them: “If you have the money, go and buy a property there and you will not regret it.”
“ASIWAJU knows what he’s talking about because he’s been a real estate guru himself for years. Those Igbo boys and other Nigerians who followed his advice are smiling big today. They are huge billionaires and their property continues to appreciate every day. ASIWAJU BAT go tomorrow.
