Joe Igbokwe, a renowned All Progressives Congress (APC) strategist and close ally of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has come out strongly vociferous against the recently declared Abia State governorship ambition of Senate Minority Leader Eyinnaya Abaribe.
The veteran Lagos APC stalwart made his opinion known in the following brief statement which he shared on his Facebook wall on Tuesday December 28:
“Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe is trying so hard to gain favour and popularity using IPOB terrorist as backup to enter Abia State government house as a governor, but that will never happen in our land.
“Anybody supporting a terrorist organization can never ever become a governor in Igbo land. We will never support such ideology because if eventually he succeeds, Abia State will become the headquarters of terrorists in Igboland because he supports and pampers them alot.
“That Governorship position he’s gunning for will definitely elude him. Although APC is taking over the state come 2023 because we have all it takes to govern Abia State for the better.
“He can contest as many times as possible but i tell you, he will fail woefully and will receive the highest humiliation and disgrace of his life.”
