Disquiet in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, took a new twist yesterday as Mrs. Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, the daughter of national leader of the party, Ashiwaju Bola Tinubu, took the President Muhammadu Buhari to the cleaners over non-inclusion of market women in the government.
Mrs. Tinubu-Ojo, who is the Iyaloja General of Nigeria Market Women lamented that during the electioneering campaign the women worked round the clock for the success of APC and President Buhari, but were abandoned after the election.
Bola Tinubu’s daughter, who led hundreds of market women to the APC national Secretariat, Abuja yesterday said the market women all over the country are not happy with President Buhari and the APC-led government.
She said market women of Nigeria believed that the government of the day is not carrying them along as it should be despite their contributions during the election, and stressed that “after the inauguration most of us were not carried along.
“I am here this afternoon to represent market women and men of Nigeria. There has been agitations, not even agitation of allegation, the people believed that the government of the day is not carrying them along as it should be, that they worked round the clock for the party during the electioneering campain, but after the inauguration most of us are not carried along.
“We only hear on the news that the First Lady is doing a programme this and that, and we just see it on the news and they wouldn’t allow me be, all the complaints come to my table morning and night.
“I say okay, enough is enough, we even heard that another FCT woman leader that is organising another market association and named it Association of Organised Market People in Abuja and most of these people are PDP, they were nowhere to be found when we are working for the party day and night.
“Now our people are not happy because they need to benefit from where they believe they have the right to and all we need, all we are crying for is for the government to give them sense of belonging and carry them along properly.”
When asked whether her father, Asiwaju Tinubu is in the know of her agitation, she said: “because I am the daughter of the National leader of APC doesn’t mean that I must not represent my people well, I have to represent my people’s opinion.
“I am a leader and as a leader my people are crying foul and I won’t fold my hands and keep quite because my father is a national leader, it is wrong.
“I am not mobilizing against the party, no, I am solidly behind the party, I have worked for the party before and I will still work for the party tomorrow, but that does not stop me from saying the truth.”

    MATTERS OF THE MOMENT:

    A TIMELY WARNING FOR BUHARI

    PRESIDENT BUHARI, KEEP YOUR DISTANCE FROM THIS OPPORTUNIST AND CORRUPT DOLLAR- LOVING SLIMY TINUBU FAMILY. THEY WILL BE A CAUSE OF YOUR DOOM AND DOWNFALL.

    YES, SINCE TINUBU’S WIFE WAS IMPOSED AS THE LEADER OF MARKET WOMEN IN LAGOS BY HOOK OR CROOK BY HER HUSBAND TINUBU, TINUBU HAS BEEN EXPECTING A BIG CONTRACT FROM BUHARI FOR HIS WIFE IN THE NAME OF THE WELFARE OF MARKET WOMEN. NOW HER DAUGHTER THINKS THAT SHE CAN INTIMIDATE BUHARI TO GIVE FUNDS AND CONTRACTS TO TINUBU’S WIFE, BUT SHE IS MISTAKEN BECAUSE THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH BUHARI WHO IS TRYING TO FIGHT HARD CORRUPTION AND SLEAZE FROM ALL FRONTS..

    TINUBU IS A WELL KNOWN HONEY- BEE AND LIKES TO SPIN AROUND WHERE THE HONEY-POT IS BUT BUHARI IS NOT LIKELY TO BE FAR AWAY FROM THE HONEY- POT WHICH THE TINUBU FAMILY FEEL IT IS THEIRS. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN UNDER THE PRETENSE OF THE WELFARE OF THE MARKET WOMEN. TINUBU WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED BY BUHARI TO BE USED AS A CONDUIT FOR THE SELFISH BENEFIT OF THE TINUBU’S FAMILY. TINUBU HIMSELF IS A CORRUPT DOLLAR MAN WHOSE PROPERTIES ALL OVER LAGOS AND ABUJA SHOULD BE RANSACKED TO RECOVER ALL THE LOOTED DOLLARS. TINUBU’S FAMILY CAN CRY WOLF, BUHARI CAN NEVER BE INTIMIDATED TO DO THINGS HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE A PART OF.

    IT IS WISE FOR BUHARI TO KEEP HIS DISTANCE FROM THIS HONEY-LOVING SLIMY FAMILY.

    YOU WANT SOME BRIBES, CONTRACTS FOR YOUR MOTHER, AND CORRUPT DOLLARS, GO AND SEE YOUR PAPA TINUBU, HE HAS PLENTY OF ILLEGAL DOLLARS, NOT BUHARI. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH BUHARI, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU CRY WOLF AND HOW MUCH YOU TRY TO INTIMIDATE BUHARI IN THE NAME OF WELFARE OF MARKET WOMEN. BUHARI IS NOT YOU, BUHARI IS A HONEST MAN WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING, DO NOT EXPECT ANY UNDUE GRATIFICATIONS FROM BUHARI, BECAUSE THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
