Just like what happened to Bukola Saraki, a former governor of Kwara state and presently, Nigeria’s Senate president in the just concluded national assembly election – some Lagosians are seeking the fall of Bola Tinubu’s dynasty.
These Lagosians are saying they are tired of Lagos being totally in the pocket of Tinubu, therefore have started a movement to take his grip off Africa’s commercial hub.
However, there is an argument that the movement(Otoge Lagos) is being championed mainly by Igbos in Lagos – and not by the majority of Lagosians – because of their ‘hatred’ for the former Lagos governor.
Some critics have also argued that Lagosians, they are really serious about ending Tinubu godfatherism, must go off social media, and start a door-to-door sensitisation to enlighten people not merely by trending a hashtag on Twitter.

PLEASE, Let's get
Rid Lagos off thugs
Rid Lagos off insecurity
Rid Lagos off Tinubuism
Rid Lagos off ethnic marginalization
Rid Lagos off ageless corruption

I really hope this hashtag is to stop SanwoOlu from winning the forthcoming election? Cos I'm tired of a robot being controlled by a remote being the Governer of Lagos. We need our roads to be expanded and a Cleaner, organized Lagos. #OtogeLagos if this # isn't about dat, f**k

#OtogeLagos I am tired of APC holding on Lagos for so long under one man called Tinubu we must break that shackle by allowing another leader to take charge so that he can expose Tinubu .Lagos have been held captive . Lagos is s not the Lagos I know .

If you think what happened in Kwara is impossible in Lagos, wait till 9th March. #OtogeLagos is a very appropriate name for Tinubu's coming doom.
