I am not Bola Tinubu’s rubber stamp – Oba Akiolu

Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu on Thursday said he is not a rubber stamp to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

The monarch spoke when the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu met with traditional rulers at the State House Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

According to Akiolu, Tinubu knew fully well that he is not a rubber stamp to him, saying that the former governor of Lagos State did not always reject his advice and requests.

The oba stated emphatically that he was not afraid of anybody except God, which was why he always spoke the truth to those in power.


Akiolu said Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat should not grant his request if he made unworthy demands from them.

He urged them to be fast to listen to people’s words, information and advice, but be slow to respond, saying this was important because many who would come to advice them were hypocrites who gave the world account of the discussions they had, when they came visiting.
