Tinubu Victory: My Life in Danger – Lagos Former Deputy Gov

A former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu says the emergence of the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has put her life under serious threats.

Sinatu Ojikutu who is the first female democratically elected deputy governor in the country had earlier vowed to go into exile if Tinubu wins the 25th of February elections.

Addressing newsmen at her residence in Ikoyi, Lagos,  the former deputy governor said her life is no longer safe since Tinubu was announced the winner of the presidential elections. She said, “I came out before the presidential election to say that if Tinubu won, I, Sinatu Aderoju Ojikutu, would renounce the citizenship of Nigeria and I have my reasons.

Speaking further, Sinatu said, “It came to me before the elections that Tinubu was asking, am I still alive? When somebody mentioned my issue to him, I understand, he said, ‘Is she still around?’ What does that mean? What does he mean? Yes, I am alive, hale and hearty. Have they planned my death? Why should anybody be asking if I am still alive?”

The former Lagos deputy governor also revealed that “there are many people like that in my category who are not safe too.”

Sinatu speaks on her rift with Tinubu

According to Sinatu, her rift with Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state, began when she opposed his governorship ambition 20 years ago.

She noted that Olusegun Obasanjo, a former Nigerian president tried to reconcile her and Tinubu but failed a long time ago.

Sinatu who plans to relocate from Nigeria hinted that a lot of people called to assure her that Tinubu would not harm her. She however said, “I know this man and I have known him for over 20 years. I know what he has done to me personally.
