Folasade Mujidat Tinubu Ojo, the daughter of forefront presidential aspirant and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been credited with a viral anti-Igbo statement whose validity is greatly doubted by the Reliant News. The statement in circulation and credited to Mrs. Folasade Tinubu reads:
“My Dad made Lagos more comfortable for Igbos but they choose to be ungrateful. The conducive environment you see today in Lagos that Igbos are enjoying while doing their businesses were put in place by my father Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.
“These people left their home town and we accepted them wholeheartedly in Lagos State, provided all they needed yet they are not grateful. Instead they keep attacking my father at any slightest opportunity.
“Without this man, there will be nothing like Igbos in Lagos State. They made their Billions here. Some of them don’t even know their hometown anymore because they now prefer Lagos than where they are coming from.
“Now, it’s time for them to reciprocate the kind gesture my father has shown to them over the years by supporting his Presidential ambition, they now resort to blackmail and all sorts of attacks on the person that made them whom they are in Lagos State today.
“They locked up their shops just to get their PVCs something that has never happened before just because my father is contesting for the President of this country. Simply because they don’t want him.
“We have tolerated their excesses for so long now, therefore the earlier we put them in their position, the better. We are watching them closely because if you are Rome, you must respect, adore and support the culture of the Romans and whatever they are doing. You can’t be in Rome and be against the Romans. Never!”
