Former deputy governor of Lagos State, Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu, has revealed she is currently in the process of renouncing her Nigerian citizenship following the emergence of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President-elect.
Ojikutu who was deputy governor toGovernor Michael Otedola between 1992 to 1993, disclosed this during a press conference in her Lagos residence.
According to her, she has been humiliated because of her problems with Bola Tinubu. Ojikutu had earlier announced that if Tinubu wins the elections she would renounce her citizenship.
Ojikutu is quoted:
I won’t be a Nigerian citizen under Bola Tinubu administration, when he assumes office. I am fervently praying to God to make the right choice of the nation I can migrate to. I won’t migrate to America or the United Kingdom. I wish for a peaceful country where I reside for the rest of my life. I am not certain of where it’s going to be yet but I have contracted my lawyers to source for a country where i can easily get their citizenship before May 29.
Ojikutu had also rallied around the idea of the South East taking over the presidency in 2023. She is quoted again:
‘’I strongly believed that it was deserving if the South-East get the presidency, as it is their turn. we have the stand on the side of equity if we want to remain one of Nigeria. Equity is not practiced by suppressing a particular zone from getting the most sensitive positions in the country.
Ojikutu also revealed that all efforts to resolve her problems with Bola Tinubu had ended in failure since she left office
Recall that another prominent Lagosian, Bode George had also threatened to leave Nigeria if Bola Tinubu won the presidential elections.
