Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has refuted the claims that he earns billions from Lekki tollgate.
According to him, he has never earned a dime from the tollgate, he revealed this while reacting to the massacre of #EbdSARS protester at the tollgate.
The former Lagos State governor spoke on Wednesday morning in a telephone interview with Channels Television monitored by The PUNCH.
He condemned the action allegedly perpetrated by the Nigerian Army, saying,
“Why will they use live bullets?
“I will never, never be part of any carnage. I will never be part of that.”
Tinubu went ahead to deny having investment with the firm which manages the tollgate; Lekki Concession Company,
“I have no dime, no kobo investment in the tollgate,” he said.
Continuing, the APC leader went ahead;
“We are about 13 to 14 days into the protests now. Before now, I was being accused and reported to the Presidency that I was behind the protests, that I was a sponsor of the protests.”
Tinubu said he refuted the allegations and “appealed to the youths” and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to respond to the demands of the protesters.
“That was why he (Sanwo-Olu) set up the Judicial Commission of Inquiry. The governor has gone to the home of one of the victims to appeal to them.
“He has put N200m together as part of restitution and compensation for those attacked.”
