Osun does not have my kind of money - Tinubu boasts/ Tinubu

Former Lagos governor and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu at the weekend declared that Osun state does not have his kind of money.

Tinubu said this during a visit to the palace of the Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, in reaction to reports that he was trying to impose Gboyega Oyetola, the APC candidate for Osun governorship election, on the people for financial gains.

Speaking in Yoruba ahead of the September 22 gubernatorial election in Osun, the APC chieftain said if Oyetola had wanted to enrich himself he would not have shown interest in governing Osun, but would have stayed back in Lagos state.

His words: “Oyetola is a reliable person. He may be quiet, but the sense he has… he is an encyclopedia of finance.

“He will not take a bribe; he will not steal your money. If he is looking for money, he would have stayed back in Lagos. Osun doesn’t have Oyetola’s kind of money.

“I’m not abusing the state. I asked those saying that I’m trying to plant Oyetola in Osun, that how much does Osun have? Osun doesn’t have my kind of money,” Tinubu asserted.
