Don’t complain against government if you don’t vote, Remi Tinubu tells electorates

Oluremi Tinubu, wife of national leader of the All Progressives Congress and the senator representing Lagos Central senatorial district, has said that eligible voters in Lagos State who did not cast their votes in the local government elections should not complain if elected politicians fail to perform.
She made this comment in Lagos in an interview with journalists in her residence in Bourdillon, Ikoyi, shortly after casting her vote in the ongoing LG elections in the state.

She said, “This is the time to show solidarity for the government; we believe that this government is working. This is the time that everybody should perform his/her civic duty,’’ she said.

The senator said that voting was a way to hold governments accountable.

“It is not for you but for your generation yet unborn so that things can be put in place.

“We have set the standard in Lagos; every elected candidate does not have any choice but to work,” she said.

Mrs Tinubu commended the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) for efforts in conducting the polls.

“LASIEC has done well; security personnel are on the ground ensuring that there is peace and order’’, she said.

Also, the Secretary to the Lagos State Government, Mr Tunji Bello, who voted at Ward E, Olonade Street, Yaba LGA, commended voters who turned out in spite of the downpour.

“Voters have shown support for democracy by coming to vote in spite of the rain.

“Starting the election behind schedule is understandable due to the downpour; it is impressive. I believe that APC will carry the day,’’ he said.
