Market: Tinubu’s Daughter Denies Demanding APC Cards



Daughter of former Lagos State Governor and the state’s market leader, Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, has said she never demanded the All Progressives Congress membership card from traders as a prerequisite to reopening the Abibatu Mogaji Model Market in Lagos. Her media consultant Gboyega Akosile however, said the allegations were false. See press statement below.

“To set the record straight, the Iyaloja-General (Tinubu-Ojo) did not demand N5m from the traders and at no time was money paid to her personally before the market was reopened.

“On the issue of her demanding APC membership registration card, the Iyaloja-General did not ask traders to present their APC membership cards as a prerequisite to the reopening of the market. In fact, only executive members of the Iponri market held meetings with the Iyaloja-General and those few people could not have registered for the entire market men and women.”

Akosile explained that Tinubu-Ojo locked up the market to correct some issues bordering on “poor sanitary condition, defacing the original structure of the market, converting shops to other uses, illegal toll collection by some unscrupulous elements in the market, non-payment of statutory and mandatory fees to the local government and illegal occupant syndrome.”
