Onanuga Reacts As #TinubuDrugDealer Trends On Twitter

Nigerians Blast Tinubu’s Aide, Bayo Onanuga For Issuing ‘Last Warning’ To Igbos

by Victor Ndubuisi

Bayo Onanuga, a spokeswoman for President-elect Bola Tinubu, has been chastised for giving a final caution to Igbos in Lagos State about “interfering” with state politics.

Onanuga had issued a warning to Igbos in Lagos, claiming that this year [2023] would be the last time they interfered in Lagos politics, and that the state belonged to Yorubas.

“Let 2023 be the last time of Igbo intervention in Lagos politics,” he tweeted on Saturday night, following the completion of the governorship election. There must be no recurrence in 2027.

“Lagos is like Anambra, Imo, any Nigerian state. It is not No Man’s Land, not Federal Capital Territory. It is Yoruba land. Mind your business.”


Onanuga’s statements, however, drew criticism from some Nigerians on Twitter, with others calling him a shame who should be imprisoned for incitement.

Here are some Twitter tweets compiled by Newsmen:

@OmonoOkonkwo, “Wow! Igbo interference? I’m not even disappointed. There are so many things I could say but what’s the essence? It will be lost on you anyway.”

@gbenga_von, “Quite divisive. The Igbo people contribute immensely to the economy of Lagos and are affected by the government policies. They should have a day in the state’s politics. Politicians should stop playing ethnic cards.”

@Tomi_Oladipo, “This is vile. Shame on you!

@niyi_oyedeji, “Ha! This is so wrong.”


@naijama, “What is the need for this tweet at this time from a man holding such a position in the President-elect’s Campaign Council? When we vote, we participate in politics: is that what is being called interference? As for the rest, when mad people beat drums, sane people don’t dance.”

@ladi_etti, “You’re sick. The same party that was using Lebanese to distribute food to fellow impoverished Nigerians. We need to watch this APC. Seriously.”

@Ezegoeduconsult, “I strongly disagree with the statement that 2023 should be the last time of Igbo interference in Lagos politics. Lagos is indeed a Yoruba land, but it is also a Nigerian state and a major economic hub for the entire country. As such, it is important that all Nigerians, regardless… Show more.”


@preciousphece, “The most condescending remark I’ve seen this period. My sympathy to those who look up to you.”

@KennedyWandera_, “Bayo, you know this is unacceptable. You know this is an act of aggression. You’re a journalist and you should know better. Stop fanning violence.”


@TheEghosa, “When we say our parent’s generation failed us, this is a classic example. A 65-year-old grandfather sat down. Typed this tweet and published it.”

@234_genius, “You’re a disgrace and should be in jail for incitement.”
