Tinubu: No proof I share from Lagos revenue (VIDEO)

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the candidate for president of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has claimed there is no evidence he receives a portion of the income generated by Lagos State, which he formerly oversaw.

Tinubu claimed that he had not received any government contracts or appointments since leaving office in 2007.

He made this known in an interview with BBC Africa on Tuesday, December 6, 2022.

He claimed that individuals who made the accusations were simply jealous of him; just as he disclosed that he acquired his money through real estate investments made with inherited properties that he later increased in value.

On his campaign, he said, “Things are going very well. I’m very confident that this election will be free and fair. I’m the front runner and that is why I’m getting many arrows.”

Talking about his priorities if sworn in as President, Tinubu said, “Security and economic recovery to accelerated development, to get Nigerians employed and get inflation down. You know, monetary policy needs to be changed. Subsidy needs to be decided upon and then removed.”

On what he will do about the insecurity in the country, Tinubu said it had reduced, just as he commended the President Muhammadu Buhari for that.

He said, “It’s reduced. I will defend him for that. Then, 17 local governments and about four states where we have flags of foreign jihadists in Nigeria. That is no more. That is long gone.

“To start chaos is easy. To bring normalcy and redecorate is more difficult.

“Here we are, Buhari has degraded, but not completely eliminated ISWAP. They will talk briefly about lethal weapons, ammunition and technological equipment that could have helped accelerate the cleanup of those.

“The West is yet to feel comfortable enough with a Buhari administration to sell us the arms and technology necessary.”

Asked if things would be different with the West under his administration, Tinubu said, “It could change, it might not change. But we have to look at, you know, alternatives. And those are the mass recruitment of individuals in a volunteer army to really clean up.”

Asked why Nigerians should vote for him despite how they feel about the Buhari administration, he said, “Because I’m different. I’m Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I have governed Lagos. I built a modern state that could be a country on its own.

“I’ve led an administration that was so prudent, from N600 million internally generated revenue to N5 billion a month. That’s a record. Nobody else can brag about that.

“I’ve treated and tamed the Atlantic Ocean surge in Nigeria that would have perished many people in Lagos. The infrastructural renewal in Lagos is excellent. I have continuity in Lagos.

Buhari has done his best. I can’t run away from him being my friend, my leader in the party. I will not.”
