And on Monday, while speaking after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, he said he did not care how anyone felt about his remarks.
“I don’t know if he (Tinubu) is the godfather of Lagos. What I know for sure is that we have retired godfathers….If anyone feels offended by that, that’s his business,” he said.
“I have no apology for my views, they are well thought out. I put them there, I don’t have to explain to anyone. This is a democracy; people are free to express their views.”
