Former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who was seen doing his accreditation at polling unit 047 on Kaffi/Sunday Adigun Street, Alausa, Ikeja last Saturday, was almost embarrassed by a Area Boy, known as Ise Aye,
Ise Aye, who had scars on his face and tattoos all over his body, shouted at Tinubu and accused him of neglecting some of the youths in the area.
The thug who raised his voice in Yoruba said: “You abandoned us here. The leaders here did not give us money. I know what I have suffered in the hands of the PDP all because I refused to join them. We remained loyal to the APC because of your late mother (Iya Mogaji) that lived here.
“Anytime I come here looking for money, they refer me to Bourdillon in Ikoyi but no one allows me to enter your mansion.”
Tinubu, who was shocked by the outburst, described Ise Aye as an untrained and foolish young man.
He said, “Do you have any sense at all? Is that how you were trained to talk to elders. Get out of here, you are embarrassing me.”
The young man eventually prostrated for Tinubu.
Asiwaju as he is fondly called, while speaking with journalists at his late mother’s home, said he was impressed with the conduct of the elections so far.
