Tinubu Reveals How Atiku Abandoned Lagosians When He Was Lagos Governor 3

The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar abandoned Lagos State when he was in office.

According to the former Lagos governor, Atiku who was then the vice president, failed to act when the Obasanjo’s government seized the state’s local government allocation.

Tinubu made this revelation while speaking in Abuja when he received the representatives of traditional rulers the from South West States led by Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi. He said:

“Atiku was Vice President of this country when the local government allocation for Lagos state was seized. When we led a protest to Atiku then, he said go away. Go and comply.

“Without those allocation, you cannot bring development. When we said we needed power to power Lagos and the industrial base in our region, they said no”, Daily Trust quoted him as saying.

“They were taking away N250 million from our allocation every month for being innovative and creative. Everywhere we turn, they rejected us and punished us. But we never gave up.

“Today, we are in that progressive development championed and led by President Muhammadu Buhari. Thank you for not looking back. Thank you for visiting and encouraging him.

“I am very happy and proud of the very promising situation. When you have the endorsement of your Royal fathers, it means you have the people with you and the voice of the people is the voice of God. I am elated.”
