A Twitter user, Amasonic wrote: “All the 9 people #ClimateWed is taking to #COP28 , none has any business with climate change.

“On the list, you’ve Toke Makinwa, IBD Dende, a Muri Tafida who from his IG is close to IBD Dende, two SSAs to the Lagos State governor (state lotteries & corporate finance/investments), the member that is representing Lagos Island II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, a businesswoman, and someone who works with PZ Cussons (at least, from her LinkedIn). BTW, one of the SSAs shares the same last name with the governor”.

Another X user, Oldura wrote: “What’s your own with climate as an OAP? Does Nigeria have enough industries affecting the climate?”,

“Toke Makinwa’s ‘femaleness’ isn’t the issue here. It is the power and access she has to partake of this blatant public looting.


“And yes, she’s getting the brunt because we know her, unlike the majority on that list. We know her and know she no climate anything”, AfroVII tweeted in broken English.

OpeBee also wrote: “If we praised PBAT for cutting down delegates to UNGA, he must take the blame for the fiasco happening in Dubai.


“Some have unwittingly chosen to focus on figure 1,400, here (on the right), we have 24 ministers in Dubai, for what exactly? The whole jamboree has taken away the essence of the trip and the need for action on climate issues in the country”.

“I honestly do not blame Toke Makinwa, I blame the people who waste taxpayers’ money on frivolous expenditures and turn official events into cruise trips.

“I blame all supporters of this rubbish government for making us see rubbish every day”. Mrsaijay added.
