Ayo Adebanjo, leader of the Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere, on Thursday called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to probe Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Bisi Akande, APC founding member.
Adebanjo said EFCC should probe Tinubu and Akande’s sources of wealth.
He made the call while reacting to a claim in Akande’s autobiography “My Participation” that Tinubu built him a house.
In a statement he signed, the Afenifere’s leader denied Akande’s claim that Tinubu built him a house in the Lekki area of Lagos State.
The 93-years-old also urged the anti-graft agency to probe his position on the matter.
The statement reads partly, “I hereby authorize the EFCC to verify the above facts. It is alleged that Chief Bisi Akande’s building at Ila-Orogun, which I understand is more than double the expanse of my house in Lekki and some other properties he has in Lagos and abroad were financed by Bola Tinubu. His house in Ibadan was also alleged to have been built by the contractor that built the secretariat in Osogbo when he was the Governor of Osun State.
“I hereby challenge Chief Bisi Akande to clear the air by disclosing the source of financing these properties as I have done above. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the great philanthropist, should also disclose the source of his wealth with which he bankrolled the elections of APC in the Southwest and that of General Muhammadu Buhari and his various properties in Lagos.
“He should also authorize the EFCC to verify such details as I have done above.”
