A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr. Abdul Wahab Olawale Alawiye-King,Â has condemned in strong terms, the alleged attempt by some people to silence one ofÂ the leaders of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and immediate past governor of LagosÂ State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Reacting to a report alleging that some people were making secret and dangerourÂ moves to employ the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to intimidate him asÂ well as compromise his security to expose his life to danger, the lawmakerÂ representing Lagos Island Constituency 2 in the House, said such plan will notÂ succeed.
According to him, Tinubu, as a political leader, has remained a force to reckon withÂ in the nationâ€™s politics and any plan to stop him would amount to stopping theÂ progressivesâ€™ train, adding that such plan will be in futility.
â€œThose who arrested the nationâ€™s progress through their brand of policies whichÂ involves massive rigging and perpetration of violence have seen the handwriting onÂ the wall and that their game is over. Such people are now seeking another means ofÂ stopping the man believed to be brain behind the political victories recorded in theÂ South West states in recent times and they should know that their secret plot hasÂ been exposed,â€ said Alawiye-King in a statement yesterday.
