Tinubu is “corruption-personified”– Nigerian Minister

The Minister of State for Works, Dayo Adeyeye, has described as shameful, the one-million-man march held in Lagos today, by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said the march was in support of corruption and the massive looting of Lagos State by the APC leader, Senator Bola Tinubu, adding that; “what the APC demonstrated was that they don’t care about the feelings of the people”.

The minister said in a statement on Saturday that the APC should defend the allegations of converting almost all the landed properties in Lagos to Mr. Tinubu’s personal use and monumental looting of the state by the former governor, rather than embarking on a show of support for corruption in the name of one-million-man march.

He said; “the APC and its leaders need to seek forgiveness from God for stealing Lagos State blind, instead of marching on the heads of the same Lagosians that they shortchanged for 16 years.”

Mr. Adeyeye, who noted that Mr. Tinubu became stupendously rich at the expense of Lagos State tax payers, added that it was an insult for anyone to be matching in support of a corruption personified individual like Mr.Tinubu.

“One is not surprised that they took to the streets in Lagos to show solidarity to Tinubu, who is being accused of massive looting of Lagos State.

“Afterall, the APC said officially that ‘even if Tinubu and the party presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari are shown in a video robbing Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Nigerians must vote for the party.’

“In other words, they are saying that even if Tinubu acquires the Alausa Secretariat the way he acquired the secretariat of Eti-Osa Local Government and several other properties belonging to the people of Lagos State, Lagosians can go to hell!

“This is shameful and Nigerians should note that handing over the country to Tinubu and his cabal will be tantamount to auctioning the country at the World Trade Centre,” the minister said.
