Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari came down to Lagos from the Federal Capital Territory this weekend for a condolence visit to Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the leader of the ruling party APC – All Progressives Congress and his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu on Saturday November 21, 2015.

She went to the Tinubus’ home on Bourdillon Road in Ikoyi at about 12;45pm, to commiserate with the leader on the death of 111 year old monarch Emir of Borgu, Alhaji Haliru Dantoro who passed away on October 30 this year.

Tinubu and the monarch were close, and the Emir gave him his famous traditional title, Jagaban Borgu, in 2006. They met in 1992, when they were both senators.

Speaking on the late monarch, Hajia Buhari described him as a committed nationalist.

According to, in his response, Tinubu reportedly said: “He was a very close friend and compatriot, and his death is a very personal loss to me. Particularly, it was very painful when I saw him on Wednesday; he was looking radiant and ready to come back home.”

Also present was Lagos State First Lady, Bolanle Ambode. The Tinubus and Bolanle Ambode wore ‘aso ebi’ – the same colour and aso oke fabric.

      I was weak too when I read the aso ebi part. Almost laughable. This is all rubbish abeg. Is the late Emir Tinubu’s relative? If anything, they should have gone to visit the Emir’s real family as part of Tinubu’s contingent, if they wanted to honour Tinubu.

      Don’t talk without knowing the full facts.. President Buhari was at the funeral of the emir. so there’s nothing wrong in AIsha Buhari visiting Tinubu to condole him.he was very close to the later emir so its not out of place.

      Nigerians and their misplaced priorities. Wasting valuable time and resources. I thought, tinubu died or smth and she’s paying tribute to his wife. WTF, a 111yr old friend to not the VP, or senate president but an old time politician who is controlling Nigeria. Absolutely nonsense. Nigeria, Shame on you.

      According to google, “Tinubu worked for American companies Arthur Andersen, Deloitte, Haskins, & Sells, and GTE Services Corporation. After returning to Nigeria in 1983 BolaTinubu obtained work with Mobil Oil Nigeria, becoming an executive of the company….”

    All hail to the Jagaban of Borgu! the master-minder/architect of Vee Dee Vee demise. You might be hated by some people due to some shortcomings, but nobody holy pass in 2baba’s voice. Even-though some of the prophets being sent by God to deliver his messages were once transgressors, from Adam to Moses that killed someone and ran away from Pharaoh’s domain.
    Most importantly, you have passed through a lot for those who knows your sojourn so far before you arrived at this juncture. When the Afeniferes were going for the highest bidder during the MKO saga, you stood firm in what you believe and you are reaping the fruit of your loyalty today (may our loyalties never be tested – Fashola).
    You even escaped Abacha’s brutality during the time of NADECO by putting on Turban to disguise, not to talk of Obasanjo that used all his efforts to send you into oblivion by depriving Lagos all the monthly allocations and you ran the government successfully by adding additional local govt (so no be today).
    You are trusted, tested and a true leader to represent the region.

    Nigerians you are the cause of your predicament. Look at the celebrating criminals and nonsense when they are suffering. What is all this? No fuel no light and you are here visiting a power drunk civilian over the death of a local trad ruler with taxpayers money. Fools. Fashola’s lover tell them

    We Yoruba people won’t insult tinubu for stealing Lagos dry, and been the biggest landlord in Lagos , but we will all open our mouth and be insulting Denziani because she is not Yoruba …we all should be careful the way we are partial about other tribes

    We should never support a their, even if he or she is from our tribe…a their is a their , Denziani or tinubu .or saraki . They are all crooks…
