Obasanjo Punished Me – Tinubu Opens Up



Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, accused former President Olusegun Obasanjo of punishing him while he was governor of Lagos State.

He went on to say that it was not a personal punishment, but rather an action taken against Lagos State because he was a member of the opposition party.

Tinubu mentioned the Enron power project and accused the Obasanjo administration of sabotaging his efforts to solve the challenges of electricity supply when he was governor of Lagos.

According to him, the Obasanjo administration diverted and embezzled a large sum of money intended to address the country’s electricity crisis.

He spoke during the APC presidential campaign rally in Benin, Edo State.

He said: “I brought Enron to solve electricity problem and help Lagos economy but Obasanjo and PDP frustrated it. They punished me and Lagos people and even began deducting our money. I created Local Governments in Lagos to accelerate development and create employment for our people but Obasanjo siezed our allocation and punished us for that. That was wickedness and such a man said he endorsed a man for you to vote as President. Can you follow such a man? Can Obasanjo recommend a leader for anyone in Nigeria? A man who does not know the way cannot show the way.”

“They punished me as Lagos State governor, not personal punish (sic) but the entire Lagos State was punished.”
