    I am seriously vexed. The Dockie only just brought to fore what should hv been said way before the campaigns. Unfortunately, gone are the days wey ‘ur papa na tif”was derogatory. Let us begin the culture of name and shame. Maybe, just maybe that would reintroduce some sanity into the polity.

    Good move by Tinubu, to sue that is, but good move also by the opposition to let out those facts. Now the courts will help us determine their veracity. Unfortunately this cannot be before the elections.
    How i wish Tinubu had issued detailed rebuttals first before heading to the court. This would have helped our perspectives a bit. We really wish to know who owns those assets he is alleged to own as well the truth or otherwise of the money-making strategy in revenue collection in Lagos- an allegation that has subsisted over the years without being addressed by Tinubu until this court action.
