Presenting the complex, the donor Chief Okafor said he donated the building to boost the chances of the APC; the election of Bola Tinubu and that of Gov. Babajde Sonwo -Olu in the forthcoming elections.

Explaining further Okafor, said the Igbos cannot be outside in the politics of Nigeria anymore because it has caused them so much in the past which has informed his decision to support individually and lend support to anyone that could help in driving Igbo interests in APC to where they are supposed to be.

Stressing, he has given the complex at no cost to support Ambassador Tor and Hon. Idimogu and all Igbos in the Tinubu/Shettima and Sonwo-Olu/ Hamzat project in the state.

“It’s well known that where we are today as Igbo nation is not where we are supposed to be. It’s because we don’t sit down and analyze things very well and I believe though there are several paths to it but all I know is that this path will certainly lead us to our destination”, he said.

Okafor who is the Oba of Ojoto in Anambra State stated, “I was very happy when she told me about the organization and I said I would support them and that’s what I have done by donating this my house for Igbos to come here.

“I call it Igbo house, and she will always have her program of ‘Igbo Kwenu 4 Asiwaju’, ‘it’s all welcome because this is an Igbo house and I want her; I want all of you to make use of it very well to project the interest of the party in the state we are in.

“So Ginika and our brother, Hon Idimogu, you’re welcome, this place is your house you can always make use of this place and make sure that even after the election that your people are still coming here for us to be putting heads together to see how we make sure that we are not outclassed in anything.”

Okafor however appealed to the leadership of the party to always carry the Igbos in Lagos along and speak in the general interest of all Igbos in Lagos, cautioned Igbo leaders on playing self interest politics.

In her remarks, Tor said the donation of the building was a motivation for her and her team to do even more, and a sign to show that the Igbos were beginning to understand what politics is all about.

She however advised the political class to give their attention to Bola Tinubu whom she described as a man who is going to change the narrative, who has the capacity, recognition and competency to move this country to a destination of choice.

“As you can see a house has been donated to us the ‘Igbo Kwenu 4Asiwaju’ that’s actually where the Igbos in Lagos will be coming to have their meetings.

“The electorates are ready for the election and I hope it’s going to be a successful one, we are going to emerge victorious despite all odds, Asiwaju is a monument on his own, he needs no further verification”, she stated.

Hon. Idimogu who is also the national Vice Chairman Igbokwenu4Asiwaju said the donation would make the Igbos in Lagos organize themselves formidably for Asiwaju/Shetima project, and believe the more in APC, and remain undaunted in their aim at joining the national level which is the APC.

“You can see we now have a place we can gather and have our meetings and discussions, I should tell you that the Igbos now really understand what politics is all about.

“Let me tell you, Asiwaju is the only true democrat among all these people contesting, who has paid his due, it’s time for Nigeria to pay him back, so he deserves whatever position he’s vying for now, that’s why he needs our support and I say that the Igbos should understand that we should play national politics and not regional politics so that we do not miss it this time around”, Idimogu advised.

“It is the interest the Igbos have in the Asiwaju project that has spurred many coordinators of Igbokwenu4Asiwaju to come from places like Epe, Ikorodu, Badagry to this place at this period of financial crunch in the country.
“I encourage our coordinators not to despair, there is light at the end of the tunnel. With Amb. Tor and Hon. Idimogu leading, we have no cause to worry.
