My Bid For The Nation’s Highest Office Cost My Assets Seizure – Okunnu-Lamidi

Khadijat Okunnu-Lamidi, a former Social Democratic Party presidential candidate, has said her bid for the nation’s highest office cost her some of her assets.

In a chat with PUNCH, she explained that it was a cost of trying to shake the status quo.

“I think it is the price you pay for trying to shake up the status quo. But it is nothing I can’t bounce back from. My business is myself and my services. I have services I offer and regardless of the threat of seizure of my assets, it does not really matter. I will build again. I really do not want to expatiate on that but there’s been a price I have paid for stepping out and stepping out of line.

“There has been an embargo on some things I have been doing. But I have decided to work on my business because that is what business does, and you have to be sustainable in everything you are doing. And you cannot depend on government patronage. We are trying to clamour that everyone has equal rights. I don’t have so right to anything. So, I need to move forward.”

Okunnu-Lamidi, the daughter of a Federal Commissioner of Works, was disqualified by her party in June after being advised to run for other positions such as local government chairman, state House of Assembly member, and National Assembly member.

She did, however, promise to support Prince Adewole Adebayo, the party’s presidential candidate.
