Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu was roasted on social media after he announced a donation of the sum of N50 million to victims of the Katsina Central Market Fire.
Tinubu made the announcement on Wednesday during a condolence visit to the Katsina State government and victims of the fire.
He was received by the state governor, Aminu Masari, and other top government officials in the state.
He commiserated with victims of the fire and advised that market activities resume despite the level of damages and destructions recorded.
According to him, life must continue.
The APC leader while addressing journalists said the purpose of the visit is to sympathise with the victims of the fire and promote unity.
He expressed shock over the unfortunate incident and emphasised the need to promote unity and collaboration among Nigerians adding that Nigerians must be their brother keepers.
Tinubu trended on social media throughout yesterday after tweeps took turns in expressing their outrage and disgust.
Bola @AsiwajuTinubu, who didn’t visit or donate one kobo to victims of the Sasa market crisis, or to victims of the Ijesha market fire in Lagos, has today donated ₦50 million to victims of the Katsina market fire. Obviously, Tinubu’s charity does not begin at home#TableShaker— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) March 24, 2021
Tinubu didn't donate a kobo after Sasa crisis, he didn't donate when Akesan happened, he was mute during the Abule Addo but quick to rush down to Katsina to drop 50m.— Premier (@SodiqTade) March 24, 2021
We can't dictate how he intends to spend his money but the posturing is too obvious. Trying to satisfy a region.
Tinubu was chancellor during Lautech intense strike and a crowdfund was called, Makinde put 5m, Tinubu put nothing.— GODZILLA 🐉 (@Samcleave_GZLA) March 24, 2021
Abule Addo people have been displaced for a year, nothing from Tinubu.
But the slave can put 50m to 'assist' Katsina traders.
This man will lose mercilessly in 2023
Wike donated N500m to Sokoto.— Anambra 1st son💭 (@UchePOkoye) March 24, 2021
Tinubu donated N500m to Katsina.
The struggle to lick ass is real.
I will never be part of this nonsense.
I like Tinubu because he is working hard to fail.— FS Yusuf (@FS_Yusuf_) March 24, 2021
Bola Tinubu, who did not visit or donate even one kobo to victims of the Sasa market crisis, or to victims of the Ijesha market fire in Lagos (though his own daughter is the Iyaloja, i.e. head of market traders in Lagos)…. pic.twitter.com/5whjpU7ohj— Yoruba Nation (@OdudwaRepublic) March 24, 2021
