How Tinubu’s daughter was appointed Iyaloja of Lagos

Former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu

The ACN claimed Mr. Tinubu did not impose his daughter on the market men and women.

The late President General of Lagos Market Men and Women, Abibat Mogaji, appointed her successor before she passed away, PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.

Mrs. Mogaji, mother of former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu, named the latter’s daughter, Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, as the new Iyaloja of Lagos, a market leader has told PREMIUM TIMES.

There had been reports that Mr. Tinubu foisted his daughter as the Lagos market leader on the traders after the death of his mother, a claim the ex-governor’s party, the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, denied.

“The market leaders of all the 57 local governments were there. The Babaloja of Lagos, Alhaji Wasiu (Balogun), was there. Everybody supported her,” Basirat Balogun, Iyaloja of Oyingbo Market, told PREMIUM TIMES.

Mrs. Balogun, who is also the Market Leader, Lagos Mainland Local Government, said that the ceremonies that installed Mrs. Tinubu-Ojo as the new leader were held on Tuesday and Wednesday at her late grandmother’s home at Ikeja.

Olubiyi Agoro, the Ojon of Lagos; and Soji Bembe, the Obanikoro of Lagos; were among the traditional chiefs that performed the rites.

Earlier this week, the ruling Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, vehemently denied reports that its leader, Mr. Tinubu, appointed the new market leader.

The party dismissed the reports as “rantings” of the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP.

Before her appointment, Mrs. Folashade Tinubu-Ojo was the Deputy President General of the Market Men and Women.

    This response is very very funny indeed and does not deserve comments. It is indeed the most precise definition of Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Why did Tinubu withdraw Lagos State Senator Olorrunimbe Mamora at the peak of his performance in the Senate and replaced him with an inexperienced and less qualified Gbenga Ashafa.

    This is the true face of APC – fraud and undemocratic tenents.

    Imagine the embelishment of this write-up by premium Times and how long it took to put it to the reading public.

    A posittion that should be contested has become a dynasty thing. How ACN positions, political offices, various collections in Lagos are the sole preserve of Tinubu.

    May God not let APC produce Nigerian president. Let them be content with their regional leadership.

      General Onoja was even suspended because he visited GEJ.

    This is how first paragraph would have read if it were Jonathan act.

    Presodent Jonathan in his usual deceit and undemocratic practices has foisted his daighter on the market men and women. He even went so low to deceive the public that his mother annointed his daughter before her death in the presence of some unknown quantities.

    PT we hail you!

        Na im go make PDP rule for 60 years. I see them repenting.

        Anyway, you gabby and your fraudulent leaders, na exactly wetin past African opposition dey do be dis. They criticise the ruling persons, use civil right groups and every possible means to secure power and there after become the worst.

        Anyway, God will not allow it here, if not FRSC will increase traffic fines to 100,000.00 and build in N90,000.00 for Tinubu
