Following the appointment of Joe Igbokwe as the Special Adviser for Water Resources and Drainage by Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Nigerians across all social media platform are making jest of the Anambra State born 56-year-old.
The only people who congratulated Joe were a few APC stalwarts, despite being Igbo and an indigenes of the prestigious Nnewi town, Joe categorically said that he is not Igbo but a Nigerian citizen.
Insults metted out on Joe ranged from shit-packer, gutter-boy etc. Knowing what the drainage in Lagos state, the state with the highest population in Nigeria looks like Joe is up for some tedious task.
Here are a few reactions from Nigerians in Twitter:

I am not surprised that Governor @jidesanwoolu appointed Joe Igbokwe as Special Adviser on Drainage. When you lie to the extent of saying 'anyone who says @MBuhari has not done well is a liar from the pit of hell' you will be given GUTTER to manage!#FreeLeahSharibu #RenosDarts

Joe Igbokwe, appointed Special Adviser, Drainage and Water Resources to Gov Sanwo-Olu.
After insulting every person that comes across him because of APC, he only gets an SA on mmiri nsi and soakaway.

For instance, if I bump into an Igbo crowd that is waylaying Joe Igbokwe, I cannot guarantee that my hand will not contribute one slap, by mistake. 🤗

Upon all that screening and questioning of Joe Igbokwe he was not made a commissioner. He only got a newly created special adviser to the governor on Drainage and Water Resources. 😤😤😤😤

''Joe Igbokwe, Special Assistant on Water resources and drainage services!
Do you know the job detail behind Drainage service?.. Cleaning of gutter and packing of shit all over Lagos.
Then Water resources?… Fetching of water. He would be fetching water for governor Sanwo-Olu!

With all the Joe Igbokwe noises all over social media, he wasn't even qualified to be a commissioner, but a bloody 'muyiwa' special assistant on drainage 🤣🤣🤣
Meanwhile, is it true Lauretta Onochie has been shown the door? @The_Seeker76
