Tinubu Denies Demanding N50 Billion From Ambode

A report had recently emerged online alleging that part of the reason why Ambode failed to secure the APC governorship ticket in 2018 was because of his refusal to remit the said amount  to Tinubu.

Reacting in a statement on Tuesday, the Director, Media and Communications for Tinubu Campaign Organisation(TCO), Bayo Onanuga said Tinubu did not make such a demand.

The statement reads, “The spuriousness of the statement is in the evidence that Lagos did not begin to clock N50 billion revenue until after Ambode left office.

“Tinubu could not have demanded a billion monthly payment from Ambode when the state government didn’t make such in a month throughout the tenure of Ambode.”

The statement added that “A content analysis of the site clearly showed that it is a Biafra news platform”.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola had also said that Bola Tinubu was exalted “beyond his status and he turned himself to a god over us”.
