"Why Tinubu Gave Me N2 Million Naira To Fuel My Car In 2009" Yoruba Activist Sunday Igboho Reveals.

"Why Tinubu Gave Me N2 Million Naira To Fuel My Car In 2009" Yoruba Activist Sunday Igboho Reveals.

Popular Yoruba activist Sunday Igboho revealed that he had once met Bola Tinubu, the former Lagos state governor.

Sunday Igboho, in an interview with Dele Momodu, reacted to President Muhammad Buhari's special adviser on political matters, Babafemi Ojudu's claim that he was meeting with Tinubu in Akure, Ondo state capital, over the 2009 Ekiti gubernatorial election re-run.

He said he had met Tinubu at his Bourdillion home in Lagos after he (Tinubu) had invited him to seek his support against the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2009 Ondo election.

The activist also disclosed that when he was leaving, the former Governor of Lagos state gave him N2 million to fuel his car, and he never saw him again after that.

“When I was hustling I had a company for about fifteen years ago, a company that sells cars. I started buying cars from Cotonou, then started buying from Germany, America, London; I travelled around to bring them. 

“Any politician that said he gave me money should come out and swear with his child.

“Tinubu is alive, ask him if I collected money from him. Yes, I have seen him before. It was the time to vote for Mimiko in Ondo. I supported Mimiko’s opponent and they called senator Ladoja. Ladajo called me and said Tinubu wanted to see me and I should do whatever he wants.

“My number was given to Tinubu and he called me. I went to see him in Bourdillon. He asked me if Ladoja has explained the election in Ondo to me. He said he hoped I was aware of how much people had suffered under PDP’s administration in the state.

“And he told me that the election in Ondo, if Ladoja has explained to me, I should not support PDP and that they need to suffer for how they treated the people. And I told him whatever he wants and I left.

“To be sincere, he gave me N2million to buy fuel [for] my car. You can interview and ask him. He said if I love Ladoja, I should know how much PDP dealt with us, so I should leave the party. We had left PDP then, to Accord party." Igboho said.
