Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu has finally revealed the source of his wealth.
The topic has been a controversial one over the years as some people believe and have accused the former Lagos State governor of involding in drug business both in the United States and in Nigeria.
Tinubu, who has developed a reputation for avoiding interviews, finally spoke with BBC Focus on Africa on Tuesday where he said he inherited real estate.
“Are they enemies of wealth, if they are not enemies of wealth–investments do yield. I have an example of Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in America and the world. He started with stock buying and brokerage. I inherited great real estate, I turned the values around.
“I am not denying my wealth. I was the most investigated, the most accused governor in opposition for eight years up to 2007. Since I left office, I am still there, I have not taken a government appointment, no government contract,” he said.
When asked about allegations of getting “cuts” from Lagos State revenue, Mr Tinubu claimed that the records of the state have been investigated by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
“Share what? Have they proven it? The World Bank (and) IMF have investigated the record in Lagos. What is wrong with them? It is envy,” he stated.Follow us on social media
