Commissioner Justifies London Trip To Watch Champions League Final



Tokunbo Wahab

The Lagos State Commissioner for Environment Tokunbo Wahab has vehemently rebuffed queries over his trip to London to watch the Champions League final saying that he had a life even before joining the government.

Wahab who described himself as a Real Madrid supporter while responding to a troll also firmly rebuffed questions as to when he would throw his support for a local football team. reports that the retort came after a troll insinuated that he had utilized taxpayers’ funds to travel to London to watch the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Dortmund.

Wahab had shared videos of himself enjoying the atmosphere at Wembley Stadium during the final.

Being a Madrid fan, he said on his X page, “My club, Real Madrid @realmadriden is the champion of Europe once again. The continent’s most decorated club added to its trophy haul on Saturday by winning the UEFA Champions League for the sixth time since 2014, marking its 15th European triumph overall. Hala Madrid!”

Then one Israel Atumen tweeted: “When will you support a Lagos team to reach new heights? Never mind the dollars spent on your trip to Madrid on state expenses… The money would have been channeled to a Lagos team for the better.”

An angry Wahab retorted: “Public servants are human just like yourself. We have our private lives before joining public service and would still have it after leaving.

“The assumption that every penny spent by a public servant is from tax payer can best be described as a poor man’s mentality. Get it off your head!”
