    Tinubu can’t monopolies Osun like he did in Lagos – Lawyer 

    Published By:

    Pelumi Jacob Olajengbesi, an Abuja-based Nigerian Lawyer, said the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, cannot monopolise Osun State like he did in Lagos State.

    Olajengbesi disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, following the comment Tinubu made yesterday, at the APC mega rally in Osogbo, Osun State, while campaigning for governor Adegboyega Oyetola,  ahead of the governorship election on July 16.

    Wakadaily reports that Tinubu, slammed the Peoples Democratic Party and the  Labour Party, saying ‘they will labour till death, described them as a mushroom groups.

    While addressing the crowd, Tinubu said in Yoruba, PDP and mushroom parties. Like the Labour party. They say they are labour, they will labour till death.”

    Reacting to the comment Olajengbesi said, “The statement of APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, in Osun State on Tuesday showed that he is not a true democrat as his supporters paint him to be. It is partisanship taken too far.

    “Tinubu’s statement is uncharitable and unexpected of an APC National Leader or even a presidential candidate. It goes to show that if elected, Tinubu will strike out other parties into non-existence like he did in Lagos where his party has monopolised for 23 unbroken years now,” Olajengbesi said in the statement.

    The Lawyer further said, “Tinubu’s statement in Osun is tantamount to voters’ intimidation and the former Lagos governor should apologise for such indecent comment. We are in a democracy, not an autocracy.”
