Alaba International Market: Ethnic bigots politicising demolition – Tinubu’s aide, Onanuga

A former media aide to President Bola Tinubu, Bayo Onanuga, has criticized those faulting the demolition of the Alaba International Market in Lagos State.

Onanuga said some ethnic bigots are politicising and reading ethnic dimensions to the demolition of the Alaba International Market.

Last Friday, the Lagos State Government began the process of removing distressed buildings in the Alaba International Market in the Ojo Local Government Area of the state.

The enforcement team of the Lagos State Building Control Agency, LASBCA, and the Lagos State Task Force embarked on the joint exercise.

The team, which went around to re-seal several buildings marked with previous multiple quit seal notices by LASBCA, said the measure was to prevent disaster.

The demolition had drawn several condemnations from the affected traders and some Igbo groups.

However, Onanuga tweeted: “Some closet ethnic bigots are already politicising and reading ethnic dimension to the plan by Lagos Government to demolish distressed buildings in Alaba Market in Lagos.

“Some are even teaching LASG how to conduct its business or exercise its authority. What a country.”
