Oba Rilwan Akiolu
The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu has stated that Lagos state cannot be wrestled away from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The traditional ruler made this comment while praising the national leader of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Speaking at a function in Ibadan, Akiolu said that Tinubu’s stubbornness has made it impossible for him to be waved aside in Nigerian politics.
He said; “Tinubu’s stubbornness made him to be the last man standing during the onslaught of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South West.I am his (Tinubu) father and the father for all and I will continue to be their father.
I don’t hide my feelings, nobody can take away Lagos from APC. At the federal level, all hands need to be on deck.”
He also hailed Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s performance, saying that the foundation laid by Tinubu in the state is being built upon by his successors.
