I Didn’t Go Nowhere; I’m Still Asiwaju Of Lagos, I’m Still Jagaban” – Tinubu Speaks From Lagos State
Former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has broken his silence amidst the #EndSARS protest rocking Nigeria in recent days, warning people to avoid fake news.
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who addressed journalists in Lagos State on Saturday, 24th October stressed that whatever people may think, he remains the Asiwaju of Lagos.
He added proudly and asserted that he remains a ‘jagaban.’
Tinubu also denied rumors that his son Seyi was kidnapped or chased out of his residence outside the country, emphasizing that nobody can chase him or his family out of Lagos.
Speaking with reporters after a visit to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the State House in Marina, Tinubu said he never jetted out of the country as widely reported on social media.
The former Lagos Governor said he asked Sanwo-Olu “if he didn’t order the attack, who ordered the attack? That’s all I needed from him.”
Tinubu demanded a thorough investigation into the Tuesday night attack.
He said: “For those who suffered casualty from SARS, the Commission of Inquiry that is already set up will unearth that and will make their recommendations. I trust the caliber 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 the future and understand how and when to react because the governor, in particular, is a youth.
Asked about his whereabouts in the past few days, Tinubu 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.
“Fake news is all over the place. They said Seyi my son was kidnapped and was chased but look at him. I didn’t pay a penny to bring him here.”
