|ASIWAJU BOLA AHMED TINUBU|
You know that in our last report, we had asked the question about the “truth behind the alleged new purchase” of a “BOMBARDIER GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS” a super private jet by the Governor Emeritus of Lagos in the person of the highly revered and much respected Nigerian politician Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who was first a Senator in Lagos, before going on to become a 2 term Governor of the State.
We have since that initial report gotten fillers from the camp of the former Governor and National leader of the ruling APC that, the supposed purchase and ownership of such a private jet especially at this time, is a “complete figment of the imagination” of those who are trying to spread the “false rumour”.
According to the gist, those trying to spread the news have done so delibrately, to cause disaffection and unnecessary trouble, as there was nothing of the kind, especially a jet at such a time like this at the value of “$60million dollars”, which is quite a super sizeable chunk that could achieve so much for any state currently, especially in the kind of “economic situation” that the country is facing right now, where most state governments are especially grappling with the dilemma of paying many months backlog of salaries.
From what those who got to us painted, the rumour is complete bollocks and so far away from the truth. According to the source, ASIWAJU as the very popular Jagaban of Borgu is referred to, is a “man of the people” in every sense of the word, especially one who cares for and about the people, so much to the extent that, even if he had the money to make such a purchase right now, he wouldn’t even do it.
We believe them.
