Is Tinubu Angry That Lagosians Did Not Vote For Him? – LP Cries Out Over Attack On Igbos In Lagos State
The chief spokesperson of Labour Party (LP), Dr. Yunusa Tanko, has condemned the silence of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu over the continuous ethnic profiling of the Igbos in Lagos State.
He noted that Tinubu silence was dangerous to Nigeria’s existence.
Speaking via a statement, Tanko opined that Tinubu ought to have spoken out against the threats and intimidation being targeted at the Igbo and Nigerians from the South/South region in Lagos and any other tribe.
He said Nigerians expected that Tinubu as a former governor of the state, would have spoken out against the threats and intimidation being targeted at the Igbo and Nigerians from the South/South region in Lagos and any other tribe.
He wondered if Tinubu’s silence stemmed from his loss in the state during the presidential election.
Tanko said: “We are worried over what could become of Nigeria, especially grave danger to ethnic war against other tribes, if he presides over Nigeria as its President.
“We must be reminded that when Hitler started with Communists, everyone kept quiet, he descended on Catholics, everyone kept quiet and he descended on Jews, everyone kept quiet because he is not Jewish, until Hitler descended on all.
“The story about the Rwandan example is too gory to contemplate. But, the way things are going in Lagos State, where Tinubu is also said to be a settler, shows that Rwanda can happen in Nigeria.
“This also serves a warning to all concerned citizens brothers nation wide that Nigeria is one and no any tribe should be a targets, for political gain.”
“If I am Tinubu, I will call my supporters to order and reduce acrimony. For God’s sake, where is the unity in victory, albeit contested?
”Why is Lagos election do or die for a president-elect? This a bad omen. Perhaps, Tinubu is angry that majority of voters in Lagos did not vote for him.”
