Senator Oluremi Tinubu representing‎ Lagos Central has already cast her votes in the governorship and state Assembly elections at Polling Unit 034, Falomo Police Barracks IV, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Shortly after casting her votes at the polling unit located directly in front of her Bourdillon residence, Wife of the All Progressives Congress National Leader, Mrs Remi Tinubu was besieged by a crowd of people waiting on her.

Addressing the crowd of people who were making monetary requests from her, she said, “Show me your hand, get the money.”

Mrs Tinubu, who was addressing the crowd in a mixture of pidgin English, Yoruba and Itsekiri languages, however, said she was not into vote-buying.

She urged the people to go to the polling booth and cast their votes.

Speaking specifically to an Igbo man, Charles Nnamani, in pidgin, Mrs Tinubu complained that the Igbo in Lagos did not vote for President Muhammadu Buhari during the presidential election.

But Nnamani, who is physically-challenged, told her that he voted for Buhari.

Responding, Mrs Tinubu said, “How will I know? You Igbo, we don’t trust you anymore.”

Among the crowd were an Itsekiri woman and her children who told the former Lagos State First Lady in her dialect that she came with her children because she heard that money was being shared.
