The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Drainage and Water Resources, Joe Igbokwe on Tuesday berated the Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe for wearing a shirt customised with “The Dot Nation”.
Mr Igbokwe, in a post on Facebook called Mr Abaribe “an elder for nothing and an ethnic bigot” and said he would someday write a book about the senator.
“A Senator and an ethnic bigot, an elder for nothing. The blood of those policemen and the uninformed youths killed in the South-East will be accounted for in the fullness of time, We cannot be mad all the time,” the former spokesperson of APC in Lagos said.
The phrase ‘Dot nation’ has been a buzzword in the southeast after President Muhammadu Buhari in a recent interview with Arise TV described secessionists from the region as “a dot in a circle”.
It is however unclear if the president was referring to the proscribed IPOB group or the entirety of people from the southeast.
