Asiwaju Tinubu’s reference to his title as Asiwaju of Lagos must be situated within the context it was done. The fake news merchants had spread the false report that he was in France and later in London in the wake of the #EndSARS protest when he had not stepped out of Lagos.
So answering a question during a visit to empathise and show solidarity with Governor Sanwo-Olu over the recent developments in the state, he said it was fake news that he left the country. He said he did not go anywhere and that he is the Asiwaju of Lagos. This was not an act of arrogance as many would have us believe.
On the contrary, it was a matter of pride for Asiwaju Tinubu that he remains the Asiwaju of Lagos and the leader of his people and could not have abandoned them at a time like this when there has been massive mayhem, disorder and destruction.
Public infrastructure has been destroyed on a large scale. Same with private properties including Asiwaju’s own companies which have provided employments and put food on the table of many families.
We must be wary of those out to twist otherwise clear and unambiguous statements and play on our emotions to achieve their predetermined end of maligning and discrediting Asiwaju. They will not succeed.
