Bullion Vans: APC Reacts To Petition Against Tinubu


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the
petition submitted to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
(EFCC) against the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

A
group under the aegis of concerned Nigerians had submitted the petition
to the EFCC asking it to probe the bullion vans sighted in the
residence of the APC leader on the eve of the 2019 elections.

The
petition dated October 25 was signed by activist, Com. Deji Adeyanju on
behalf of concerned Nigerians and two other activists – Ariyo Dare
Atoye and Adebayo Raphael.

It would be recalled that a picture of
two bullion vans entering Tinubu’s residence on the eve of the election
had gone viral even as Tinubu claimed the money belonged to him.
Some Nigerians had taken on the EFCC for not probing the bullion vans despite the outcry trailing the movement of huge cash.

But
the acting Chairman of the commission, Ibrahim Magu, had said the EFCC
would probe Tinubu if it received petition to that effect.
It was on
this basis that Adeyanju and his colleagues submitted the petition to
the commission in response to the challenge by the Chairman.

Daily
Trust learnt that the development has caused panic in the camp of the
APC leader with his followers and supporters wondering if the EFCC would
go after their leader.

However the APC spokesperson in Lagos,
Hon. Abiodun Salami in a chat with our correspondent dismissed the
petition, challenging them to come up with proof that Asiwaju had stolen
any money.

He said, “Let them come up with the proof. The man is
a private citizen and he has been out of government for the past 12
years. If he has decided to spend his money on his party, how is that a
problem? Let them come up with a proof that somebody’s money is
missing.”

Adeyanju had while submitting the petition said,
Speaking shortly after submitting the petition said, “I have decided to
take up your challenge after you called for a petition through your
social media account on Twitter.”
