Tinubu moves to replace his mother with his daughter as leader of Lagos State market women.

The Lagos State PDP has warned former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, to rescind his decision to impose his young daughter, Shade Tinubu-Ojo, as the new Leader of Market Women in the State.

In a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, the Lagos state PDP said it noted “that the much touted democrat should allow the simple tenets of democracy to prevail in the selection of a new leader for the Market women, more so as there is no cogent evidence that his nominee and daughter is a full time market woman.

The former governor had announced this choice during the 8th day firdau prayer for his foster Mother and former Leader of Market Women, Abibat Mogaji.

The statement said Mr Tinubu plans to confirm this choice to market leaders at a meeting he has summoned to hold on Tuesday at his residence.

“This new development portends great danger for our democracy and indeed Lagos integrity. We are thus calling on the State Governor, Raji Fashola, not to sit on the fence at this auspicious time.

“Fashola must rise up and be counted now. He must exhibit control in governance especially when Tinubu’s interest conflicts with the Public interest. He must see to it that the process leading to the emergence of market Leader and any other leadership in the State is transparent, liberal and credible.

“Politics must not be overplayed to erode human decency and respect for due process. Any act that would break down the assumed Peace in the State must indeed be avoided.
