A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ayo Adewale has clarified that bullion vans in 2019 missed their way into Tinubu’s house in Lagos.
NewsOnline reports that Adewale who is a member of Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign council said Tinubu was innocent of the bullion vans that drove into his Lagos residence a day before the 2019 presidential election.
In an interview on Arisetv, Mr Adewale said some large companies pay cash to their staff and the bullion van must have missed its way to the Bourdillon residence of Bola Tinubu.
Adewale who is one of the spokesmen of APC presidential campaign council added that the recent gaffes by the APC presidential candidate are swag -meaning a deliberate attempt to get the attention of young people.
The Former Amuwo Odofin Chairman expressed confidence that the APC will do well in the coming elections in Nigeria.
In 2019, a viral video of bullion vans Driving into the residence of Bola Tinubu was a major talking point of the elections.
Prayer Point: May Bullion vans Miss Their Way Into Your House – Nigerians react
Nigerians, however, have described the explanation of Adewale in defense of his boss, Bola Tinubu, as lies from the pit of hell.
A former aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, said Adewale’s defense runs contrary to that of the former Lagos governor who in 2019 said the bullion vans were his.
“The funniest thing is that Even The Tinubu himself admitted that the bullion vans were his and that their presence in his house was nobody’s business!” Reno recalled.
“Bullion vans got lost and entered Tinubu’s house by mistake? Really? APC is that how gullible you think Nigerians are? Over 2 million houses in Lagos, and the bullion vans did not see any of them to get lost in. They conveniently chose to get lost in Bourdillon?” He further asked.
“Prayer Point: May bullion vans miss their way and land in your house! If you believe, shout a big amen in the comment section!” He prayed.
Rudeboy of Psquare, a popular hip-hop artist said, ” If you are not watching #arisetv this morning you are missing, lies upon lies, Omoh skit go plenty.”
