She alleged that her life was in danger with the declaration of Tinubu as president-elect, adding that she has face humiliation because of the difference she has with Tinubu.
“Before the results of the presidential elections were declared, I came out to say that if Bola Tinubu won the election, I would renounce my citizenship in Nigeria and I have my reasons.
“When he won, people called me and said he would not do anything bad. But I am endangered by the current situation. I have been ostracised and humiliated in places where I should be honoured because of his not being at peace with me.
“I will not hold a Nigerian passport with Bola Tinubu as President. I am praying to God to give me the nation I can go to. I am not going to America or the United Kingdom. I want a simple place where I (can) stay and live for the rest of my life.
“I don’t know where I am going but I have already given it to the lawyers to please see where I can get the citizenship. I am working on it seriously before May 29” the former deputy governor said.
Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu was deputy governor to Michael Otedola from 1992 to 1993, until there came a military takeover of government in 1993.
