Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, daughter of APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of abandoning the people who voted him into office.
Mrs. Folasade made the pronouncement while speaking at a meeting between APC leaders and some market women in Abuja on Thursday, March 10th.
The statement reads partially:
“I am here this afternoon to represent the market women and men of Nigeria. There have been agitations.
“The people believe 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 campaign, but after the inauguration most of us are not carried along.
“We only hear in the news that the first lady is doing a programme, this and that.
“And we just see it in the news, and they wouldn’t allow me be; all the complaints come to my table morning and night.
“And I say okay, enough is enough…
“We even heard that another FCT woman leader is organising another market association named Association of Organised Market People in Abuja, and most of these people are PDP members.
“They were nowhere to be found when we were working for the party day and night.
“So, 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 a sense of belonging and carry them along properly,” she said.
The Iyaloja-General said the fact of being Tinubu’s daughter should not stop her from speaking up.
“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 quiet 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.”
