By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos
One of the children of the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Moremi on Monday took her protest to the Lagos home of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Moremi led a band of few protesters to Tinubu’s residence as part of the nationwide protest called by a coalition of groups protesting the state of the nation’s economy on Monday.
The protesting party reportedly stormed Tinubu’s home as early as 9am in the morning demanding to see him and handover a letter to him for onward transmission to the Presidency.
They were initially prevented from seeing the APC chieftain who later allowed them into his sprawling residence located at Bourdilon area of Ikoyi when they insisted.
When he finally met them, he demanded for their mission, which they promptly explained to him after which he counseled them on the need to maintain peace and be patient with the government, saying what the country is going through are necessary for the country to attain greatness.
Dress in brown shirt and trousers, Tinubu said, “We are in a new year into the administration. To make that change effective and productive eventually, you have to be patient. You have to have the hope. I’m not worried about the exchange rate because the salary will be in Naira and you are not an importer or exporter.
May be that is teaching us a lesson to be dependent on our domestic products. To develop other talents, to develop other areas. That’s what your grievances are all about and that is what the government is working towards achieving.”
