I stumbled on this piece today and thought to share with you guys.
"Tinubu pronounces daughter new Iyaloja of Lagos The culture of imposition in Lagos continued yesterday as Alhaji Bola Tinubu pronounced his daughter,Folashade Tinubu-Ojo the new President General of market men and women in Lagos. The coronation took place at the 7th day prayer held by leaders of the Market Association for the late Abibatu Mogaji at her Sunday Adigun residence in Ikeja,Lagos.Tinubu who interrupted the prayer sessions to make the decree first told the market leaders that the house where Mogaji lived and died has been willed to the association.Before the applause that followed could die down he went to the next item" " I also want to announce to you that the new Iyaloja of Lagos is Folashade Tinubu-ojo.We are in a new era.Besides,Mama was not older than her age when she became Iyaloja" By this time Sade was on her feet dancing with the father handing her envelopes filled with cash to distribute to the Alfas.The market leaders dispersed with mixed feelings as they meet on Tuesday to review the coup Tinubu hatched.It would be recalled that Tinubu wife, Oluremi is currently a Sentor in Lagos while her sister is a member of Lagos Assembly.The husband of Sade who has just been installed Iyaloja is a member of the House of Reps.Tinubu is indeed Lagos!Eko o ni baje ju bayii lo"
|Late Habibatu Mogaji- Tinubu's Mum|
Whether she is qualified and the right person to fill that position will be a topic for another day so i'm waiting for the outcome of Tuesday's meeting. For now, i'll assume the position is hereditary since she's filling the big shoes her Grannie left behind.
