Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has said that most of the people around incoming President Muhammadu Buhari are self-seeking sycophants and enemies of the state whose activities in the corridors of power might not augur well for the country.
Akiolu made this declaration at the weekend during an event to mark the 2,900 days of Governor Babatunde Fashola’s administration.
The monarch spoke on what he felt was a cover-up on the part of some traditional rulers and politicians on sensitive matters and said that, in good time, he would expose those who do not wish the country well.
He said, “A lot of things have been happening now. Some people have been telling Buhari all sorts of things.
“Awujale and I have decided to meet Buhari because Lagos and South-West states must benefit from the Buhari administration.
“People, who are now telling Buhari all sorts of things are sycophants. They did not want Buhari to emerge winner in the election.
“These people know themselves. When it gets to a stage, I will name them one after the other. I am not afraid of human beings.”
