National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief Bola Tinubu, has said that the trending campaign slogan of ”O Toge” in Kwara is different from “O Tope’’ (It’s something to be grateful about) which subsists in Lagos.
Tinubu made the comment during an interactive session with the media after casting his vote on Saturday at Polling Unit 047,Ward3, in Alausa, Ikeja Local Government Area of Lagos in the governorship and state assembly elections.
The “O Toge’’ which means “enough is enough” was a slogan first used in Kwara State to oust the political dynasty of the Sarakis.
The slogan was made popular during the Feb.23 Presidential and National Assembly election to challenge the Sen. Bukola Saraki political hegemony in Kwara.
The slogan, however, gained currency in the Southwest as the opposition party in Lagos adopted same slogan to challenge the ruling party in Lagos State.
Tinubu, who came to the polling station at noon with some aides, proceeded to cast his vote at 12:15p.m.
The APC stalwart made a mockery of the O to ge slogan used by the opposition in Lagos, saying the situation in Lagos was quite different from what was obtainable in Kwara.
“The “O Toge” slogan is for Ilorin; Lagos is not Kwara State, and there is a limit to copying. Lagos should be ”O Tope”, not “O Toge”.
“We are going to win because we are the only party in Lagos State, others are pretenders; they come and they will go away. Leopard cannot change his skin.
“Lagos State belongs to the progressives; we are progressives and we will remain progressive,” he said.
