Bola Tinubu Finally Reveals Which Spirit Gave him "Emi Lokan", and Other Popular Statements

Bola Tinubu, has finally revealed the meaning of "Emi Lokan" and which spirit he invoked and got "Emi Lokan" from. He made this revealtion on Thursday, June 29, adding that he invoked the spirit of freedom during his electioneering in Ogun state.



Accorfing to Punch news, Bola Tinubu, while speaking at the palace of Awujale and paramount ruler of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, in Ijebu Ode, said that during the campaign season, some of his popular statements that resonated with Nigerians and his supporters were used to invoke the spirit, 


The former senator and Lagos state governor added the hardship that accompanied the Central Bank of Nigeria cash swap policy during the electioneering period forced him to invoke the spirit of freedom in the South West state. nIn his words;


“I invoked the spirit of freedom in Ogun." “It is a homecoming and I owe so much to all of you and there is so much to thank you for. Because of the way you have taken me and the way you’ve responded to me, all I can say is thank you.

 

“To many of you, thank you for being there for me and being there for the country. You demonstrated so much loyalty, so much commitment and voted at a very crucial time.


“Your monies were confiscated. The cash swap didn’t work. It was terrible then. I realised that and I came to Ogun State to invoke the spirit of freedom for which we are noted for.


“I invoked that spirit twice. The spirit of Baba (referring to Awujale). The spirit of Baba – Emi l’okan (it’s my turn), that’s Baba. The spirit for being blunt and that is him.


“And the second spirit is that of money (Naira scarcity), ‘ama dibo ama wole’ (we will vote and we will win) even if there is no money. And that, ever since, has been the spirit that is driving me to serve.”
