I invoked spirit of ‘Emi Lokan’ from Awujale  – Tinubu 

    Published By:

    President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has revealed that he involved the spirt of Emi Lokan (its my turn) from the paramount ruler of Ijebuland, the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona.

    Tinubu stated this while speaking at the palace of the Awujale in Ijebu-Ode on Thursday.

    He said: “I invoked the spirit of Emi Lokan from Baba (The Awujale of Ijebuland). That’s the spirit of freedom and that’s who we are as a people.

    “I came to Ogun state to invoke the spirit of freedom from which we are noted for. I invoked that spirit thrice – the spirit of Baba (Awujale) is Emi Lokan. That’s Baba, being blunt, being incisive, that’s him, he will tell you.”

    Recalling on the naira redesign crisis that rocked the country during the February 25th election, Tinubu said: “our monies were confiscated. The cash swap didn’t work. It was terrible then, I realised that.”

    He said, “And the second spirit is that money or no money, ‘A ma dibo’ (We will vote) A ma wole (We will win). Bi ko sowo (Whether there’s no money). And ever since, it’s been the spirit that’s driving me to serve.

    “I’m honoured Baba. I am honoured. I’ve just come to respond to whom calling, saying I need to see you.

    “Thank you for being there for me and for  there for the country. You’ve demonstrated so much loyalty, so much commitment.

    “Baba, this is your President. This is your son Thank you. Thank you for everything. I thank God for you being alive to witness today, to witness the result of the election that you prayed for us your children.

    “You have an uncommon courage and you passed it to us. We utilised it to serve and to invoke the spirit of who we are a people, very proud and honourable people, people of great character. Our diversity for prosperity will never be forgotten,” he added.
