The All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has denied allegations that he directed the former Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, to remit N50 billion monthly to him.

The ex-Governor who was elected in office in 2015 was allegedly asked to pay N50 billion monthly to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu during his administration, However, Ambode failed to secure a second tenure as he lost the APC primary election in 2018.

Reports emerged that Ambode’s failure to secure the APC governorship tickets was because he refused to pay the demanded sum to Tinubu.

Tinubu debunked the reports through his Director of Media and Communications for Tinubu Campaign Organisation (TCO), Bayo Onanuga, who said he didn’t make such demands.

“The spuriousness of the statement is in the evidence that Lagos did not begin to clock N50 billion revenue until after Ambode left office.”

“Tinubu could not have demanded a billion monthly payment from Ambode when the state government didn’t make such in a month throughout the tenure of Ambode.”

According to Tinubu’s Media Director; “A content analysis of the site clearly showed that it is a Biafra news platform”.
