Olanrewaju posited that Tinubu's record in Lagos should not be used to measure his competence to govern Nigeria, adding that Lagos has been a commercial city and even a little brilliant person will be a successful Governor of Lagos.

He said:

"Tinubu didn’t have any proper economic ideas. those best brains he assembled were just local champions that were able to cage Lagos with different policies, but because there was no opposition in Lagos, they escaped every atrocity.
