The ruling Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has criticised the leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria(ACN), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu for installing his daughter, Folashade Tinubu Ojo as President General of the Nigerian Market Men and Women.
Speaking on the development, Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Tony Okeke said that Ahmed Tinubu has purely shown his despotic tendencies by installing his daughter as the Iyaloja.
“Nigerians have clearly seen that the so-called democrats and self-styled messiahs in the ACN are indeed wolves in sheep’s skins”, he said, stressing that Folashade is not a full time trader to succeed his mother , late Alhaja Abibatu Mogaji as President General of Nigerian Market Men and Women in utter disregards for democratic principles.
“This shows the level of disdain the ACN and its leaders have for democracy. It shows the type of leadership that is obtainable within the ACN where members have been gagged just as it indicates what form of leadership Nigerians should expect if such leaders are allowed to hold power at any level in the country”, he said
“We challenged the ACN which always harps on democratic principles to examine this issue and come out with its verdict. We also call on Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola to listen tothe people and ensure that the right thing is done by allowing the traders to choose their leaders through a democratic means”.
