I’m A June 12 Activist… My Age Mates Has Been Governors, President – Joe Igbokwe

Published

on

Joe Igbokwe, special adviser to the governor of Lagos state on drainage and water resources, says there is no leadership crisis among the Igbo leaders in the state chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Speaking at a press conference, he said only three leaders of the group left, but the members are still in unity and committed to the mandate of the ruling party.

He said his age mates have been governors, ministers, senators and presidents in the country, so he has no need to fight over the apex leadership of Igbo in APC.

“There are no factions in Ndigbo APC in Lagos. We are about 17 leaders in the ad-hoc committee set up for the purpose of 2019 election. Only three members left. You cannot call that a faction,” Igbokwe said.

“There is nothing like apex leader of Ndigbo in APC Lagos. It was just what we used to organise our people in Lagos. Only one leader in the group started calling me apex leader. It is not an official title. As the leader, I am satisfied with what I have, being the publicity secretary of the party for 12 years, serving government since 2005.

“My age mates have been governors, ministers, senators, even presidents. So, what am I doing with apex leader of Ndigbo in Lagos? I’m a June 12 activist. We fought for June 12. I didn’t get to this position I am today by mere accident. I’ve used my body to face bullets in the days of the locust.

“Ndigbo APC in Lagos is strong. We’ve been consistent. Our investment here is too much; so, we need to work with the government of the day to get things done. What our people have in Lagos, they don’t have a quarter of it Igbo land. I’ve been here since 1985, so I know what I am talking about. We have huge investment in Lagos. We are all Lagosians. All my children were born here.

“Our people are still voting PDP and we have been trying to woo them to come to APC. They have not been able to move away from the defeat of 2015 and 2019. It has been difficult for us to convince them to come into APC. If they had come to APC, we can negotiate for Igbo presidency. You cannot be in PDP and expect APC to give you the platform. You need to play a better politics.”

2023: Northern Groups Drums Support For Another Goodluck Jonathan Presidency

Published

on

According to the newspaper, groups in the region believe that if Jonathan becomes president, northern interest will benefit and are now trying to build the momentum to return him as president.

 

 

 

An unnamed source privy to the plan by the northern groups reportedly said the support for Jonathan has a strong chance of getting the backing from both the northern and southeastern parts of the country.

The source who was not named said:

“My brother, you know there is no way the North will support the agitation of the Southeast for the presidency, but we all know that if Jonathan comes out that the Southeast will not oppose him,” a source who is not directly involved but privy to the plot disclosed.”

The source reportedly said the northern groups behind the plan are trying to get Governor Nyesom Wike who is considered an ally of the former president to support the idea.

However, it should be noted that Goodluck Jonathan in the past has denied any interest in contesting for the presidency.

 

 

The former president made it clear that he was focused on his foundation.

 

In another news, an APC chieftain in Anambra state, Odu Onyeka, has revealed what will make the Igbo presidency possible in 2023
