Many igeria’s main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that Bola Tinubu, presidential flag-bearer of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is contesting “to gain control of the nation’s treasury so as to expand his exploitative enterprise and economic empire beyond Lagos State”.
In a recent statement by its spokesperson, Debo Ologunagba, obtained by Newsbreak.ng, the PDP accused the former Lagos State governor of corruption.
“Nigerians are aware that he (Tinubu) is in the Presidential race not to serve but to gain control of the nation’s treasury so as to expand his exploitative enterprise and economic empire beyond Lagos State.
“The APC Presidential Candidate has not responded to allegations that he is the promoter of the increase in VAT, electricity tariff, import duties, Stamp Duty, fuel price hike as well as other exploitative tolls by the APC Federal Government, from which he allegedly benefits through many stooges in the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) and other revenue generating agencies of government,” PDP’s statement reads in part.
Tinubu, 70, has been widely perceived as the “Godfather of Lagos”. The wealth of the presidential hopeful has been a major conspiracy theories spinner for more than a decade, but he has often weathered the storm.
