PDP wants Buhari to prosecute his party leaders, financiers — APC

President Muhammadu Buhari

The APC Presidential Campaign Organization says that the PDP Federal Government is working extra hours to raise malicious charges against the leaders and suspected financiers of the opposition All Progressives Congress using the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in order to force Muhammadu Buhari to “try his own men” in a test of his bid to fight corruption without fear or favour.

A statement signed by the APCPCO Media Director, Garba Shehu, alerted that the federal government is planning to take advantage of a vow by Mr. Buhari that if elected, he will not investigate the past, but that all on-going cases, as he said will be allowed to run through the courts without any hindrance.

In what is clearly a mischievous attempt to railroad the Presidential Candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari, to subject his own supporters to trial and conviction, the Federal Government, in a letter signed by the Chief of Staff to the President, Brig. Gen. Jones Arogbota (rtd) sent a list of some of the most senior APC leaders, businessmen and company CEOs with a view to the immediate commencement of investigation and trial against them.

The list as circulated on the web included former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Gov. Rotimi Amaechi, Gov. Adams Oshiomhole, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal and Gov. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State.

Others are Senator Danjuma Goje, Senator Bukola Saraki, Faruk Ahmed, Executive Director PPPRA; Sulaiman Barau, a Deputy Governor of the Central Bank; the MD of the Nigerian Ports Authority, Habib Abdullahi and the DG of the NCAA, Captain Mukhtar Usman.

The rest are the MD of NDIC, Umaru Ibrahim; Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed; the Group Executive Director of the NNPC, Aisha Abdulraham; the Governorship candidate of the APC in Taraba State, Senator Aisha Alhassan; the PDM candidate for Adamawa Governorship election, who was formerly the Executive Secretary of UBEC, Ahmed Modibbo, as well as the former Minister of Education, Professor Ruqqayyatu Ahmed Rufa’i.

The letter-forwarding the list to the EFCC quoted the Chief of Staff as saying that he had been “directed by the C-in-C (President) to instruct your Agency to clandestinely investigate the personal and official finances” of the listed individuals.

  • King Carlos

    Ehn.. there is nothing wrong in investigating public official,past or present. They should have nothing to fear about if they are clean. Well, looks like Jonathan and co have started planning for life after office.

  • Issei

    Garba shehu, are you insinuating that this names you mentioned are all currupt,and are also the ones sponsoring GMB campaign financially,?if the answer is in the affirmative then Nigerians are in trouble,because we are definitely running from frying fan to Fire.

    • logmein2nite

      Shut up! Ok, make you and I (clean people) go sponsor Buhari to become president of Nigeria make we see.

    • MIB

      Issei, get it , it is not Garba Shehu that is insinuating that they are corrupt , it is a list of past and current serving officers emanating from the presidency to EFCC for investigation. As for the current serving officers, if the presidency knows they are corrupt, why keep them till now. If an ED in NNPC is to be investigated, what of the minister. Pls, APC prepare your own list , built up cases of corruption and take them to court also, so that the new govt of APC will inherit them for continuity of prosecution . It appears PDP has thrown the towel.

      • Issei

        Well said then

  • segun

    LOL PDP PLANING FOR LIFE AFTER OFFICE…..BUHARI MAN OF INTEGRITY IS NOT GOING TO WITCH-HUNT ANY PAST LEADER,HE IS SIMPLY GOING TO FIGHT ANY CORRUPT OR INCOMPETENT APPOINTEE IN THAT WAY THERE’S NO WAY FOR MISMANAGEMENT,EMBEZZLEMENT,INCOMPETENCE….

  • Ukpaka

    If these men are corrupt, how come GEJ, who has been president for almost 6yrs did not try to prosecute them?. Why now?…..all APC leaders?. Same way he remembered to fight Boko Haram on election day.
    First, this shows the PDP is already conceding defeat. Secondly, it is not up to GEJ and his corrupt government to decide who gets tried by the Buhari administration. That prerogative stays with Buhari. Nice try PDP but you have run out of luck. GEJ will be the first Nigeria president to go to jail.

    • Onike24

      Very simple and concise question!

    • Statement

      Exactly! As you can see this is Apc propaganda. They inveted and planted the story. Criminals.

  • MC

    Who is afraid of probe! APC guys live in glass houses and still throw stones. I have always said that the only person in that camp with little or no corrupt past is Buubuu. Others are simply corruption personified and they’ve been wanting to come to equity with unclean hands. Clowns!

    • Lemmuel Odjay

      Let them together grow with your “Buubuu” and when it is harvest time, the wheat shall be separated from the thorns. For now, the winnowing fork has gone to work and has chosen Aso Rock and Wadata Plaza as its first ports of call. Just relax and watch this bitter sweet movie play out to yours and my benefit…

      • MC

        I admire your poetic streak, though I can’t honestly say I understand your message.

  • Ade

    If you are not corrupt, you have nothing to fear.

    Vote Buhari to send Atiku, Tinubu,fashola,Emir Sanusi elrufai obj, Ibb, GEJ, Diezani etc to jail.

  • True Nigerian

    So isn’t that an implicit admission by PDP that Buhari has won this election? Hahahahaha! Na wa o!

    PDP can’t even think like a ruling party anymore! They have developed the mentality of an opposition party.

  • TRUTH MASTER

    PDP just gave Buhari victory in the March 28th election!

  • Frank Bassey

    If this is true, there is nothing to worry about except they are indeed CORRUPT.

  • Aliyu Muhammad

    PDP has admitted defeat

    • UO

      exactly.

  • Forward Nigeria

    This so called letter is a fraud, and the federal government and the EFCC has already debunked it. So Nigerians be wise to know that APC is full with hypocrites… How can a party with the leadership of Tinubu, Atiku, Amaechi, Saraki, etc claims it’ll fight corruption? Haba… another name for APC is thieves party.

    • August January

      Simply because you’re blind! Otherwise, you would have seen that the one claimed to be sample of authentic letter from the president is on EFCC letter head paper. So, the president also uses EFCC letter head to write to EFCC. Anyway, Jonathan and PDP have discovered that there are many mumu like you in Nigeria, and hence they can throw up anything. They know you will buy into it immediately. Blind PDP rat! Mumu!

      • embeey

        This is not efcc letter head pls. Tht clearifies u r d blind 1, n he is d mumu

        • August January

          You are really blind! I’m talking of the one placed beside this one, which EFCC has claimed and presented as a sample of letters from the president to EFCC, but which is clearly on EFCC letter head. Really unfortunate that some Nigerians like you are not only mumu but also blind. I pity you for real

      • Adebisi

        Are you that gullible to believe deceitful and corrupt party like APC

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Well..I can confirm, though, that our NGO sent a petition against Tinubu to EFCC last Monday.

  • Lemmuel Odjay

    All of the listed names where for many years members of the PDP and were perceived as saints, until they had left to join the APC. Those who are left within the PDP, beginning from Jonathan himself and others as represented by Diezani, PDP’s oil and gas contractors and their colleagues who are either stealing our oil or drilling holes in our collective purse etc. have serious questions to answer before Nigerians, questions bothering on unprecedented corruption and graft while holding or serving public office. They could choose to remain “saints” until the day they join the APC. Typical of the EFCC to simply turn its head and look the other way, until they turn coats and find their way into the APC. There is also the group of cabinet ministers etc. that was inherited by Jonathan who had served under the late President Yar Adua. Guys like Aondoakaa, Oshotimehin, etc. whom Jonathan in his excitement at becoming president had allowed to leave without investigating what roles they’d played during the vacuum that was created when the then president was hospitalized up to when they were sacked. The Aondoakaas of that shameful era have gone into hibernation mode, and are comfortable thanks to the free money they are presumed to have cornered during the period when there was no oga to checkmate them. A hungry man they say is an angry man. How come that set of cabinet ministers have remained quiet and at ease till date? Jonathan knows, for I believe he was in league with them at the time. It was a grand opportunity to bleed the purse with the books in the freezer, if you know what I mean. The answer to what actually transpired could for now be blowing in the wind, until one of those ex ministers wakes up from their induced sleep and strays into the warm embrace of APC! Blimey! You too…? Then the can of worms would be opened and the PDP’s famous Book of the Dead would be thrown unadulterated at them. PDP’s confidence rating suffered a blow a few weeks ago, when Femi Fani Kayode came on board to warn Buhari (of APC) about a plot by Tinubu, also of APC, to replace Osinbajo (another APCean) after the enthronement of an APC government. That left many wondering what was left of the PDP. However, this “PDP Wants Buhari To Prosecute His Party Leaders, Financiers” had opened them to a blab too many. It is a clear indication that the servants at Aso Rock are even now packing the suitcases in preparedness to bid all a farewell. Do I feel teary? Na! It is the sign those oil thieves and their colleague contractors have been waiting for to book their tickets for that winter holiday (thought it used to be summer holiday?) that could turn out to be permanent exile. Nights in exile can get so lonely. Ask J. O, Ibori. You cannot dribble all the people all the time…

    BE CAREFUL WHO YOU VOTE FOR

    Your future depends on your choice

    Fellow Nigerians, we have Just few days to our elections and below are some
    vital things we must consider before casting our vote.

    1. Buhari killed Ben ogedengbe by a death penalty for a crime that didn’t
    carry death penalty when he committed it.

    2. Buhari doesn’t attend the Federal Council meetings yet collects his
    allowances. Mr. Integrity indeed.

    3. Buhari canceled former Governor Jakande’s metroline and forfeited the
    $50 million paid for it by the then Lagos State Government

    4 Buhari used Violence to stop the September 1985 National Conference of
    the National AssociatIon of Nigeria Students.

    5. Buhari jailed Tai Solarin and denied him his asthma drugs simply because
    he campaigned against military rule and for democracy.

    6. Buhari Jailed Nduka irabor and Tunde Thompson for writing a truthful
    report which embarrassed his Government

    7. Buhari raided respected Papa Awolowo’s house and seized his passport so
    he couldn’t travel out of the country. Was he also corrupt?

    8.Buhari threw Former vice President Alex Ekweme in jail even though it was
    proven that Ekweme never stole any money.

    9. He jailed honest and respected pa Adekunle Ajasin.

    10. He jailed Fela Kuti in I984 for singing against the dictatorial
    tendencies of his Military Government

    11 Doctors, remember that Buhari banned the Nigeria medical Association
    (NMA)

    12. Buhari stopped Ooni of Ife for traveling abroad simply because he
    visited the holy land of Israel in 1984

    13. He broke up press conference of ASSU in 1984 and detained four of their
    executives

    14 He jailed Beko Ransome Kuti who only demanded for the release of his
    brother.

    15 He jailed Dr. Sam Onunaka Mbakwe.

    16 He jailed Awwal Ibrahim now the Emir of Niger State before IBB pushed
    him aside.
    Nigerians must be careful with what they wish for!

    AND YET, JONATHAN’S GOVERNMENT IS CORRUPT –
    THEY WANT CHANGE
    1. Obasanjo’s government spent $16bn for power, and
    only achieved to change the name of NEPA to PHCN, yet
    some people and Obasanjo says Jonathan’s Government
    id corrupt.
    2. Obasanjo’s government, Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku
    Abubakar were involved in a $180m Hallibuton bribery
    scam that made world news, Yet Obasanjo says
    Jonathan’s Government is corrupt.
    3. Obasanjo’s government, Obasanjo and Atiku spent
    about N1tn with Siemens for the production of National ID
    Card, with a N34bn bribery scam. I am yet to get mine,
    Yet Obasanjo says Jonathan is corrupt.
    4. Bola Ahmed Tinubu used Babatunde Fashola to build 1
    kilometer of road for N1.2bn, while Akpabio builds same
    for N120m. Yet Tinubu and Fashola says Jonathan is
    corrupt.
    5. Bola Tinubu and Fashola spent $460 million (N55
    billion at 2009 exchange rate of N118/$1) of tax payer’s
    money in the name of Lekki-Epe Concession Company
    (LCC) to build a toll gate, and yet taxed Lagosians even
    after claiming to buy back the concession, for using the
    road with no records, Yet Tinubu, Fashola and Obasanjo
    says Jonathan is corrupt.
    6. Buhari delegated all powers to Afri-Project Consortium
    (APC), a consulting firm owned by his Wife’s brother,
    which allowed his Inlaw’s firm to Initiate all projects for
    the PTF, Approve all projects for the PTF and Execute all
    projects for the PTF. APC was able to make away with
    N25,758,532,444 (Twenty-five billion, seven hundred and

    So former President called President Jonathan to leave
    the 56,000 ghost workers to remain in status quo, When

    Nigeria was rated the 2nd must corrupt Nation in the
    world as at 1999 – 2007 when Obasanjo was president,
    then rated 3rd from 2007 till 2011. In 2014, Nigeria is
    rated 37th in the world, with a four months review that will
    place Nigeria at 46th. Yet Obasanjo says Jonathan is
    corrupt.
    SHOW ME ONE STOREY BUILDING THAT BELONGS TO
    JONATHAN IN NIGERIA

  • Adebisi

    APC has it’s foundation built on lies and corruption. Buhari won’t probe people that has stolen in the past because they are all around him, funding his campaign. Besides, he also have a corrupt past.

  • Danlami

    IF THE ALLEGATION IS CORRECT THEN THAT IS A BRILLIANT IDEA. CHARITY, THEY SAY BEGINS AT HOME. LET BUHARI REMOVE THE STONES FROME HIS EYES FIRST BEFORE REMOVING SAND FROM OTHER PEOPLE’S EYES. GBAM.

    • Lemmuel Odjay

      Why not start this “charity begins at home” thing with the one who gave the orders in the first place, the C-in-C himself? Or are we here affirming that he is a saint, along with those in his cabinet and PDP’s oil and gas contractors? Slowly your C-in-C is playing into the hands of the devil. That is the choice he has come to prefer, one that would bring this country to suffer the consequences of his stupidity. Open your eyes, be patient and watch, as this “order” is carried out. It is one of the old tricks of Nigeria’s desperate reactionaries during an election year. The difference this time is, it would fail because Nigerians are wiser and impatient…

  • henry angelo

    Dear Brethren,

    A Pharoah will take us back to the land of Egypt, where we will become slaves again (apart from the few who will be his associates and collaborators), whilst all others will be whipped into order, slammed into jails without due process and will have to bow down to the Pharaoh. 

    The Pharaoh’s tribe and religion will be super-imposed upon all, as the born to rule superiority complex will override all other tribes and religion/s.

    Some slaves may want to go back to Egypt again, to be slave masters, as they see gains lording it over other slaves, but the majority of the other slaves want their own freedom and will rather take their destiny into their own hands, serving their own living GOD.

    A Moses is no Saint and has his faults, but like Moses, he is leading the slaves to cross the red sea and then take the slaves into their promised land, a desert, flowing with milk and honey.

    To be able to get to the promised land, the slaves have to first cross the red sea, and need Moses.

    However, we are at a cross road and need to decide between a Pharaoh who will take us back as slaves into the land of Egypt, or a Moses who will help the slaves cross the red sea, into the promised land.

    Spiritually, we all have to decide if we want Pharaoh and to go back as slaves to the land of Egypt, or we can chose Moses, who has his faults, but who is already taking us to cross the red sea and is trying to help us cross into the promised land.

    Spiritually, the battle is on, either back to Egypt as slaves and bowing to Pharaoh, or choosing Moses with his faults, then, crossing the red sea into the promised land.

    The Change We Need

    Thisday, 10 Mar 2015

    With Shaka Momodu E-mail: shaka.momodu@thisdaylive.com, 08112661654

    Since February 10, 2015 when I read the advertorial published in
    THISDAY titled: Brazen Looting of Lagos Treasury, 1999-2015 – which
    chronicled Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s massive wealth, I have been too
    shell-shocked to function effectively. I have been hard-pressed to
    understand, if true, how one man can acquire so much in one lifetime. I
    have struggled to match Tinubu and Babatunde Fashola’s public postures
    with the gravity of the allegations levelled against them. Can it really
    be true that Bola Ahmed Tinubu owns all the property listed in the
    advertorial? Is it true that Fashola also owns vast wealth and has been
    conniving with his godfather to defraud the state

    I have been heartbroken, shattered, devastated and depressed about the
    sheer scale of abuses, mismanagement and careless disregard for the
    public interest that Tinubu and Fashola are accused of. Even though some
    of these allegations are not new, the scale of the malfeasance and the
    cheekiness revealed is truly remarkable and frightening. The alleged
    unrestrained greed exhibited in the quest and method of acquisition is
    quite troubling. To me, these change agents need thorough examination
    especially at a time like this when the change mantra has rented the
    airwaves, and many are being led to believe the magic wand to solve all
    of Nigeria’s problems is change.

    Striped of the politics, we want answers. And the fierce urgency is now, today not tomorrow.

    The question is: if true, does Tinubu really need so much wealth? I
    have repeatedly asked, praying that I am in a deep trance and will soon
    wake up and realise it is just my mind playing funny games on me. But
    one full month after, the allegations were published, they have not been
    denied. Is he going to take this massive wealth to the great beyond?
    If the answer is negative, then of what use are all these primitive
    acquisitions of material wealth when poverty pervades the land as he
    himself has repeatedly acknowledged. It is difficult for one to
    understand the voracious appetite of some people, who it is alleged
    have shared our collective patrimony among themselves and yet have the
    audacity to tell us that for our tomorrow, they have given their today –
    when in actual fact, for their today, they have taken our tomorrow and
    that of our children. The architects of change have been caught in a
    scorching irony of hypocrisy.

    The more I think about the grand deceit packaged as change, the angrier
    I become and the more convinced I am – that I have been right all along
    with my serious reservations about the message, intentions and the
    motives driving their quest for power. Indeed, more than ever before, I
    am convinced that the change we need is from those who have craftily
    hoodwinked the people into believing that they are the ones who can
    bring succour to them. We need change from those who have cunningly
    played on the gullibility of our people to fleece them of their
    commonwealth, only to point an accusing finger at others as the cause of
    the problems of the country. When they claim Lagos is working, I say,
    oh yes indeed! It is working for their pockets. I am yet to see anybody
    who is a beneficiary of the alleged sleaze that will not tell me Lagos
    is working in the manner it is currently working for the pockets of a
    few.

    The scale of what Tinubu and Fashola are accused of appropriating from
    Lagos taxpayers is so mind-boggling that I fear for the future of this
    country – I am frightened of what may happen to Nigeria if these people
    are entrusted with power at the centre. More baffling is that instead of
    Tinubu and Fashola responding to these specific allegations, all we
    hear is an impotent threat of a lawsuit from Tinubu, while Fashola who
    has been very vocal on the “missing” $20 billion on the campaign stump
    has kept a deafening silence. A man loudly projected as a sterling
    performer, not only now has his integrity been called to question, but
    has been practically accused of misappropriation of public property and
    abuse of office. A man who has been shouting change and has consistently
    accused those at the federal level of massive corruption, has been
    unable to respond to grave allegations of mismanagement,
    misappropriation of state resources, inflated cost of contracts and
    collusion to defraud government of its property valued at several
    hundreds of billions of naira. The exemplar of a good administrator now
    has his back to the wall. What an irony!

    Until these allegations were made into a documentary currently airing
    on Africa Independent Television (AIT), there was no rebuttal from
    Tinubu or his spokesperson upon the publication of the advertorial under
    reference, neither has there been any reaction from Fashola who has
    carried on as if he owes nobody any explanation on how he has managed
    public resources entrusted in his care.

    Not surprisingly, the allegations are not weighty enough to rouse and
    outrage the people into the streets to demand answers. Our
    self-appointed custodians of morality in the society, especially the
    human rights community have kept a deafening silence. The many
    organisations committed to transparency and anti-corruption have either
    lost their voices or feign ignorance of the publication or documentary.

    Femi Falana has not found his voice to call for a thorough probe; he
    has not rushed to court to seek an order of mandamus to compel the
    Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the Independent
    Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) to investigate the allegations; he
    has not directed his NGO, SERAP to start demanding the probe of
    Tinubu/Fashola like it did of Gitto Construction Company’s church
    building gift to the Otuoke community.

    What about Professor Itse Sagay? He has not said a word because it is
    Tinubu and Fashola that are involved. Professor Wole Soyinka, the Nobel
    Laureate and the wordsmith of Africa, is yet to hold a world press
    conference on the state of the nation to call for investigation into all
    the allegations or accusations. He is yet to even write his lengthy
    treatise with high-sounding grammar condemning the alleged record
    sleaze. Nobody or group is organising a one million-man match to demand
    accountability, investigation and prosecution. Rather, the godfather,
    who is the accused, is the one organising a one-million-man march to
    shore up his battered image and divert attention from the allegations.
    He is dragging out hapless Lagosians in fetters to march for him and
    sing his praises in joyous hymns instead of moving to convincingly clear
    his name. This is a sacrilegious irony for the change mantra. Something
    must be deeply wrong with our society and its value systems. Talk about
    one nation, two moralities.

    For those who don’t know, it is not enough to just mouth change for the
    sake of it, change depends on our actions, attitudes and must be
    meaningful. But what we are seeing in this so-called change is that the
    narrative is different from the actions and attitudes of its proponents.

    What is needed here is not the one-million-man march. In fact, one
    thousand-million-man marches will not clean the slate. Let Tinubu
    explain to Lagosians how he got so rich.

    What is needed is not a gentle query, but a fiery rebuke and
    condemnation of this alleged looting: “We need the storm, the whirlwind
    and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the
    conscience of Nigerians must be roused; the propriety of the nation must
    be startled; the hypocrisy of these people must be exposed and
    denounced”

    Now imagine for a moment that it was another person from the ruling
    party that was alleged to have stolen so much, what would have been the
    reaction of these people and groups? The outcry is better imagined. All
    sorts of shady groups would have been organising protest marches against
    the person and calling for his prosecution. Now, can someone remind me
    what Stella Odua and Patricia Etteh were accused of that led to their
    fall? Now, who was in the forefront of mobilising public opinion against
    them? Why is there no similar outrage against Tinubu and Fashola? Why
    are the public opinion moulders not saying anything? Is this the change
    that they talk about?

    Now, put all what these women were accused of in the context of what
    Tinubu and Fashola have been accused of, the two women will be canonised
    saints.

    Below are some of what Tinubu/Fashola are accused of appropriating:

    “The largest landlord in Lagos has done as he pleased, and the rest of
    the state just has to deal with it. To start with, No 4, Oyinkan Abayomi
    (formerly Queens) Drive, Ikoyi: A 5-bedroom detached house on one acre
    of land which was originally the Lagos State governor’s guest house
    since 1979, now belongs to Tinubu. The certificate of occupancy of the
    property valued at N450 million was signed and released to him by
    Fashola in 2007 shortly after he resumed office.

    “Tinubu’s residence at No 26 Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi was initially
    falsely presented as an Oando Plc guest house. Later, he purportedly
    bought it from Oando, and used public funds to rebuild and renovate it.
    The Lagos State Government bought the property and paid an undisclosed
    sum to him and thereafter gave the property back to him under the bogus
    Pension Act he signed into law shortly before he left office in 2007.
    The property is worth over N600 million.

    “The annex of the Lagos State Guest House in Asokoro, Abuja was bought
    by the state government in 2006 for N450 million, purportedly to protect
    the main house from a security breach. Shortly after Tinubu left
    office, the property was transferred to him under the pension plan he
    signed into law before leaving office.

    “The 250-hectare land valued at about N35billion and strategically
    located at the Ajah junction on Lekki road was initially meant for a
    general hospital for the people of Eti-Osa Local Government but was
    allegedly acquired by Tinubu and handed over to Trojan Estate Ltd – a
    company owned by Deji and Wale Tinubu – to develop as Royal Garden
    Housing estate at the expense of the taxpayers of Lagos.

    “The 1,000 hectares of land valued at about N75billion located at
    Lakowe near Abijo at Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Area and given to
    Lekki Concession Company (LCC) which is allegedly partly-owned by Tinubu
    and Fashola and is being developed as a golf course and housing estate
    by Assets and Resource Management Ltd (ARM) as ADIVA project.

    “The prime land of 157 hectares with 2.5km of Atlantic beachfront
    valued at about N10 billion and purportedly stolen by Tinubu from the
    communities of Siriwon, Igbekodo, Apakin, etc in Ibeju-Lekki Local
    Government Area and given to Ibukun Fakeye, his alleged crony to build a
    golf course and luxury villa with little or no compensation to the
    villagers. In addition, Tinubu was alleged to have to paid $20million
    (N3 billion) out of the public treasury to Ibukun Fakeye to commence
    the project in late 2006. Fashola has since released additional funding
    for this project, which is not owned by the state government.

    “The 14-hectare Parkview Ikoyi estate foreshore land reclaimed by Lagos
    state government is now purportedly owned by Tinubu. While in office,
    he purportedly allocated to himself the former Strabag yard beside the
    Lagos State secretariat at Alausa, Ikeja. The property has now been
    developed into a shopping mall as big as the Palms in Lekki. This is a
    public property brazenly stolen and now allegedly owned by Tinubu, aided
    by Fashola.

    “The choice property at Lekki-Epe road on which he built and owns the
    multi-billion naira Oriental Hotel and the extension of multi-level
    recreation centre by Mobil in Oniru Estate on Lekki-Epe road jointly
    owned with ARM and Tunji Olowolafe. All these assets valued at over N25
    billion were allegedly obtained without paying a kobo to the Lagos State
    Government.

    Tinubu raised a loan of N4.7billion on Eko Akete project for which
    nothing was achieved before he turned around to sell the property to his
    Chagouri friends of Chagouri & Chagouri and Hitech Construction Ltd
    at a ridiculously low price at the expense of the taxpayers of Lagos.
    Tinubu applied to personally purchase the federal secretariat building
    while in office. When he couldn’t get to buy it, he directed Fashola to
    stop the eventual owner of the complex from developing it. The complex
    is presently wasting away, courtesy of the Lagos State Government.

    “It took several months of horse trading and underhand payments before
    Fashola could allow the new owners of 1004 flats to redevelop the
    complex (Wole Babalakin). Several other buyers of federal government
    properties and developers of properties in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and
    Government Reservation Area, Ikeja were forced to succumb to the
    outrageous demands of Tinubu, Fashola, Commissioner Abosede and other
    officials.

    The Critical Care Unit of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital
    (LASUTH) in Ikeja, built and equipped with state funds, is now owned
    personally by Tinubu. He has put Dr. Sikiru Tinubu, (a supposed cousin
    of his) to run the outfit. It is run as a private unit and proceeds are
    pocketed by the duo…”
