Senator representing Lagos Central at the Senate, Oluremi Tinubu on Saturday said that eligible voters in the state who did not cast their votes in the local government elections, would not be justified to complain against local councils.
She said this in an interview with journalists at her Lagos residence.
The wife of a former Lagos Governor and one of the National Leaders of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, spoke after casting her vote.
“This is the time to show solidarity for the government, we believe that this government is working, this is the time that everybody should perform his/her civic duty,’’ she said.
The Senator said that voting was a way to hold governments accountable.
“It is not for you but for your generation yet unborn so that things can be put in place.
“We have set the standard in Lagos, every elected candidate does not have any choice but to work,’’ she said.
She said that she had been working as a people’s representative for the past six years and would continue to do so till the end of her tenure.
She commended the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) for efforts in conducting the polls.
“LASIEC has done well, security personnel are on ground ensuring that there is peace and order.’’
