The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has explained where his wealth came from, putting to rest allegation of corruption that has been leveled against him in time past.
Tinubu said that his critics are only envious of his wealth, and are ignorant of how much investments do yield into wealth.
The APC standard bearer, in an interview with the BBC in London, recalled he is the most investigated and accused former governor yet nothing has been found on him.
Fielding question on corruption allegations, he said, “You got to know how to analyse and how to ask questions, not in the accusatory format.
“Are they enemies of wealth, if they are not enemies of wealth, investments do yield. I have an example of Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in America and in the world. He started from stock buying. I inherited great real estate, I turned the values around.
“I am not denying my wealth, I was the most investigated, the most accused governor for eight years, up to 2007 and since I left the office, I am still there, I have not taken any government appointment.”
Tinubu also rebuffed allegations of him having a share of the revenue generated in Lagos despite not being in power in the state.
He noted that his critics have no proof to provide concerning this, noting that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has also carried out an investigation on the funds in Lagos, and found nothing to prove the allegation.
“Hey excuse me, share what? Have they proven it? IMF has investigated the record in Lagos. What is wrong with them? It is envy.” Tinubu said.
