Everything Bola Tinubu Had to Say About #EndSARS Protest, Lekki Toll Shooting & Leaving Nigeria

Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Saturday, October 24, 2020, spoke with newsmen after paying a visit to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Addressing newsmen, he spoke about Lekki toll gate shooting, discredited reports that he travelled out of Nigeria amid the #EndSARS protest, also expressing his displeasure with how the peaceful protest turned into mayhem, leading to the mass destruction of government facilities, private properties, death and maiming of innocent lives.

First, we have to segregate the calendar – those who suffered casualty before the protests from the hands of SARS. You have to separate that from those who suffered casualty due to what happened at the toll gate.

For those who suffered casualty from SARS, the Commission of Inquiry that is already set up will unearth that and will make their recommendations. I trust the calibre and the character of the people there, they are independent. That is one.

Those who suffered casualty during the gunshots need to answer some questions too. Even though we want to help, we still must extract information that will help the government to prepare in future and understand how and when to react because the governor, in particular, is a youth.

As a youth himself, he (Sanwo-Olu) quickly went to Abuja with the 5/5. The government immediately put into action, dissolved the SARS and had to work through other recommended actions, the needs they demanded. Within a few days, he reported back to the public. That is responsive enough.

But where are we getting the looting, the carnage, the burning, the invasion of police stations, stealing of arms, maiming of the innocent? It is a handshake beyond the elbow.

Reaffirming his title as the Asiwaju and Jagaban of Lagos State, while discrediting reports that he alongside his family members left the country. He said:

I didn’t go nowhere; I’m a Lagosian and I still hold the title of Asiwaju of Lagos and I am still a Jagaban. Fake news is all over the place. They say Seyi my son was kidnapped and was chased but look at him. I didn’t pay a penny to bring him here.
