The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has alleged that former Lagos State Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu illegally acquired a N14 Billion Ikeja Shopping Mall.
The PDP also alleged that Tinubu stole from the coffers of the Lagos State Government during his tenure and used same proceed to acquire Oriental Hotels, Renaissance Hotel, Agindingbi, First Nation Airline, Vintage Publications, TV Continental and Radio Continental.
National Vice Chairman of the PDP, South West, Chief Segun Oni, in a statement said many other properties illegally acquired with proceeds from corruption are traceable to the former Lagos Governor.
“Instead of attacking President Jonathan, shouldn’t the ACN be explaining to the public, who owns the N14 Billion Naira Ikeja Shopping Mall that was built on Lagos Secretariat land, who acquired the land at Ikosi, Ketu, Lagos, former campus Lagos State Polytechnic, who owns Oriental Hotel, Renaissance Hotel, Agindingbi, First Nation Airline, Vintage Publications (publishers of The Nation newspapers), TV Continental, Radio Continental, and so many other illegal and corrupt acquisitions?, Oni asked in the statement.
“The ACN should tell Nigerians how a man who was governor for eight years with fixed salary and allowances could have acquired so much money to buy almost everything in Lagos and stop insulting our sensibilities with nonsensical talks which are only aimed at covering up their non-performance and looting of treasuries in the States under their control.
“What Nigerians demand from them are explanations as to the reckless and obscene appropriation of properties belonging to Lagosians by Bola Tinubu and his stupendous wealth which is at the expense of tax payers in Lagos, Osun, Ekiti, Oyo and Ogun States, the PDP National Vice Chairman said.
Oni, who described the ACN as a congregation of political hypocrites said in the statement signed by his Media Aide, Mr. Lere Olayinka that; “it is the height of hypocrisy for a party, whose leader; Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu has converted all properties belonging to Lagos State to his personal use to attack the president, just because a contractor chose to invest in the propagation of the work of God by renovating a church in the president’s village instead of him (President Jonathan) collecting gratis from the contractors.”
Oni described the call by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) for the impeachment of President Goodluck Jonathan over renovation of a church building in his village by a contractor as not only satanic but irresponsible, saying; “the ACN people should first remove the beam in their eyes before looking at the specks in another person’s eyes.”
He said; “Would the ACN hypocrites have preferred that the said contractor handed the money used for the church renovation to President Jonathan as they would have done if they were the president? Or that the contractor should have doled out the money to Tinubu as part of his birthday largesse as done by ACN governors in the Southwest?
“For instance, when I was governor of Ekiti, I rejected gratis from contractors and the contractors are still alive. Instead, I told them to use the money for charity and they decided to buy vehicles for Schools for the Handicaps in the State. They bought the vehicles, donated them as ‘Friends of Segun Oni’ and as at today, the buses are still being used by the schools.
“I think the problem with these ACN people is that they think they are above everyone, including God. That is why they could come up with such satanic position just because a company performed its social responsibility by helping to promote the work of God.
“One then begins to wonder why the ACN people hate God and members of the Anglican Communion this much.”
“For instance, in Ekiti State, whenever they are faced with questions as to their failure to deliver the Eldorado that they promised the people, they will quickly come up with allegations of corruption against my person. But for over 17 months, it has been treats and no action and as at today, they are still searching their books.
