He said people had spread all kinds of fake news about his whereabouts and dismissed claims that he jetted out to France in the wake of the unrest in Lagos.
“I am the Asiwaju of Lagos”, Tinubu said in response to a question”, emphasizing that there was no time that he left the former federal capital to go anywhere.
