Tinubu’s Daughter: How Iyaloja-General of Lagos Increased Her Rank

The Iyaloja-general of Lagos State, Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, has updated her profile on the microblogging site, Twitter, to reflect the “Iyaloja General of Nigeria. The First Daughter of the FRN.”

Her update comes a few days after her father, President Bola Tinubu, was sworn in as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Tinubu-Ojo currently has over 21 thousand followers on the popular microblogging site.

Her declaration as Iyaloja General of Nigeria is meant to identify her as the president of all market men and women in the country.
