Sade Tinubu, the Iyaloja General, on Thursday, fired back at some traders in the Computer Village Market who protested against the appointment of Iyaloja and Babaloja to head the market.

The daughter of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, while addressing the media, said all the markets in Lagos State were under her control and the Computer Village Market cannot be exempted.

Reiterating further, Sade noted that according to the constitution she can choose anybody from any local government in the state to head the market, stating that all Iyalojas and Babalojas across the state are her representatives.

“They cannot tell us they are not pepper sellers, everybody cannot be textile dealers; they can’t tell us that computer village will be exonerated from other markets.

“We have the right to choose for them.

“Those people protesting never approached me to complain.

“They don’t have the initiative that the person leading the protest has finished his tenure and wants to remain in power.

“Computer village is not just an ICT hub, there are a lot of commodities being sold there; nobody can say it is wrong to select a babaloja and iyaloja for the market.

“Those that have been selected were not selected because they are Yoruba, in some of our markets in Lagos we have Igbos that were selected as market leaders,” Tinubu-Ojo said.

She added that the appointment of Mrs Abisola Azeez and Mr Adeniyi Babalola as Iyaloja and Babaloja of Computer Village respectively was done to maintain peace in the market among the traders.
