Joe Igbokwe is the President of Lagos State Chapter’s All Progressive Congress (APC). In the early hours of today, he shared an old video which was about the installation or rather the coronation of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the “Aare Ago of Egba Land”.
After sharing the video, Joe Igbokwe captioned it with a memory he had in the past. He said the day they went for that coronation (installation) of Tinubu in Abeokuta Ogun state, he was the only Igbo Man who followed Tinubu and Buhari to the function. In his exact words, “I was there live. When I looked around, I was the only Igbo in that monumental gathering.” According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari and many other northern dignitaries were also at the gathering.
Joe Igbokwe narrated that many people thought their main reason of being there was for the chieftaincy title not knowing it’s beyond that. Joe Igbokwe said the other thing they did at Abeokuta that day was to cement the merger of all political parties that came together to become All Progressives Congress (APC) today.
