Tinubu Moves to Have His Daughter Replace His Mother as Lagos Market Women Leader
Former Governor Bola Tinubu is set to have his daughter, Shade Tinubu-Ojo, replace his late mother, Alhaja Abibat Mogaji, as the leader of Lagos Market Women. Until her death, Alhaja Mogaji was leader of Lagos Market Women as well as president-general, Association of Nigeria Market Women and Men.
The current move by tinubu, who is also suspected of positioning his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, as the Vice Presidential nominee of the yet to be registered All Progressive Congress, APC, is being resisted by the Lagos State Chapter of the People's Democratic Party, PDP, which has asked him to rescind his decision.
Whoever emerges Market Women leader wields immense power as such a person can sway the votes of the union any which way he/she pleases.
