You Can’t Impose Your Daughter On Market Women – PDP Tells Tinubu


Following the death of his mother, former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has reportedly decided to impose his daughter, Shade Tinubu-Ojo, as the new leader of market women in the state.

People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in a statement on Monday by its Lagos Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, has therefore urged Tinubu to allow democracy prevail in the selection of a new leader.

“You 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 the nominee is a full-time market woman,” the statement said.

The former governor had allegedly announced the choice during the eighth day Firdau prayer for his mother and former leader of Association of Market Women and Men of Nigeria, Alhaja Abibat Mogaji.

“The former governor plans to confirm this choice to market leaders at a meeting he has summoned for Tuesday (today) at his residence.

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


  1. That is Tinubu for you, all the best positions in Lagos state he struggles to keep his family members there. He is so greedy and self centred. When we have other iya olojas everywhere who can fit into that position.

  2. This is the way his APC will be ran if Nigerians allow them. Political positions will be shared among his family members,girl friends and cronies. He imposes anybody on lagosians. Nigerians, please be wise come 2015 about these characters in APC. Opposition party my foot
