The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has denied claims that he demanded N50 billion monthly from the former Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode during his tenure.

In a statement issued by the director, media and communications for Tinubu Campaign Organisation (TCO) Bayo Onanuga, on Tuesday, August 9, refutes allegations levelled on Tinubu.

According to Onanuga, the source of the fake report came from a Biafra news platform.

The statement partly read:

“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.”
