Towards Osun state gubernatorial election in some days time, a trending video has emerged where the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said the Osun state as a "whole" does not have his kind of money.
It will be recalled that, Tinubu and many prominent people from APC came to Osogbo last week for APC campaign but they made a courtesy visitation to the paramount ruler of Osogbo before the flagging off of their campaign. The video was then recorded during the visitation to the palace of the Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun, also said before the first class traditional ruler that the candidate APC is fielding in the forthcoming September 22 gubernatorial election is very rich.
Tinubu, who addressed everyone in Yoruba, was apparently replying critics who accused him of appointing Ajele (Sole Administrato which was common during precolonial era) as governor to oversee his interest and monitor his business in Osun.
Seeking support for the APC governorship candidate, Gboyega Oyetola, Tinubu’s words translates thus: “We would have asked Rauf to continue because he is working very well. But, we now look at your son, who is accomplished, Gboyega Oyetola; we are handing him over to you. He’s a reliable person. He may be quiet, but the sense he has… He’s 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. You’re not as rich as he is in Osun.”
Tinubu said that those who think he wants his candidate to win in order to run his business in the state, that 'Osun does not have his money'.
Tinubu also said that that he is campaigning for Gboyega Oyetola because he wants to provide jobs for them and create a better future for the children of Osun.
