Tinubu: I am still the Jagaban
The chief of the political All Progressive Party (APC), Bola Tinubu, has stated that he is still the Jagaban of Lagos while denying claims that he flew out of Nigeria soon after the Lekki tollgate massacre.
The former Lagos State governor when asked about his whereabouts soon after said, “I didn’t go nowhere; I’m a Lagosian and I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos and I am still a Jagaban. Whatever they think. Fake news is all over the place. They say Seyi my son was kidnapped and was chased but look at him. I didn’t pay a penny to bring him here.”
He also talked about his meeting with the present Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu. He said he asked him who ordered the shooting if it weren’t Sanwo-Olu himself, that it was all he wanted to know. He also emphasized on the need for a thorough investigation into the events of that day.
Recall that Tinubu has been heavily criticized following the Lekki shooting; that has seen businesses and investments linked to him burnt down or looted. He condemned the looting that has been going on in the country in recent days.
First, we have to segregate the calendar – those who suffered casualty before the protests from the hands of SARS. You have to separate that from those who suffered casualty due to what happened at the toll gate.
For those who suffered casualty from SARS, I think the Commission of Inquiry that is already set up will unearth that and will make their recommendations. I trust the calibre and the character of the people there, they are independent. That is one.
Those who suffered casualty during the gunshots need to answer some questions too. Even though we want to help, we still must extract information that will help the government to prepare in future and understand how and when to react because the governor, in particular, is a youth.
As a youth himself, he (Sanwo-Olu) quickly went to Abuja with the 5/5. The government immediately put into action, dissolved the SARS and had to work through other recommended actions, the needs they demanded. Within a few days, he reported back to the public. That is responsive enough.
But where are we getting the looting, the carnage, the invasion of police stations, stealing of arms, maiming of the innocent? It is a handshake beyond the elbowBola Tinubu
