Alphonsus Eba, who is the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State said that that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the president-elect, did not know that some Igbo people were prevented from voting in Lagos and that he would have condemned it. He also said that Tinubu would treat the Igbos well when he becomes the president.
Alphonsus Eba made the above statement while he was speaking in an interview with the Plus TV Africa. He said that if it was true that Igbo people were publicly stopped from casting their votes in the Lagos governorship election, a Tinubu knew about it the he would have condemned it. He also added that Tinubu was not a person who is afraid of condemning something that is wrong.
He said, “I condemn that in totality if that happened, but I am sure if that was ever made to the knowledge of our president-elect, he will condemn it because he is not a man that is known for tolerating what is not good. There was a serious situation in this country, the issue of redesigning of the Naira note and the issue of petroleum scarcity which were biting seriously in this country, Tinubu came out to speak against it. He is a totally detribalised man and if there was such thing brought to his attention he would have condemned it.”
