Speaking after casting his vote in Ikeja for his preferred governorship candidate of Lagos State, Tinubu said Lagos was wrongly painted violent-prone.
“I take exception to the Okota incidence two weeks ago, I’m very upset about that. Painting Lagos as if we are violent-prone.
“If you have 1,325 polling units, and only five units were affected by Okota incidence, it should not be classified as violent-prone.
“You journaists have to look at materialism factor in this sense, how significant is five units out of 1,325 afftected by by Okotoa incident, now caracterised Lagos as violent. And you now hyped Lagos as violent.
“You are not doing justice to us, you are not doing justice to the economy, and you are not doing justice to your medium.”
