Former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu, has stated that she will renounce her Nigerian citizenship once Aswijau Bola Tinubu is sworn in as President.
Her attorneys have begun working on her decision prior to May 29, she revealed at a press conference on Wednesday.
She asserts that Nigeria is in a deplorable state and doesn’t need a President with baggage to begin directing its affairs at this crucial time.
She claimed that her safety is no longer guaranteed and that the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu should be held accountable if anything were to happen to her.
She also claimed that Tinubu had a grudge against her due to her insistence that Lagos needed to be developed and her desire to become governor of Lagos State.
Ojikutu further alleged that Tinubu did not appreciate these actions and that he had publicly humiliated her on numerous occasions and even ordered the revocation of her land documents.
“Nigeria is in a hopeless situation, and when I heard Peter Obi speak, I had no alternative but to support him,” she stated in reference to the general elections of 2023. Again, I am among those who believe the South-East should assume the presidency. If we assert that we wish to remain one Nigeria, then we must contemplate equity.
“You cannot assert that you are one Nigeria while oppressing a specific region. You do not want them to be elected president. Let them go if you don’t want them to be number one. If you don’t want them to leave, give them the opportunity to be first.
“Obi spoke words that were appealing to the youth. He stated that he would address the wastes that prevent the nation from developing. Many of us were captivated by his words.
