Ambode Speaks On N9.9bn Lagos Government Account by Citizenshelm: 1:30pm On Aug 09
Immediate past governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has denied a statement attributed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) alleging that it had frozen certain accounts linked to him.

The former governor said no account of his contained N9.9 billion let alone being frozen by the EFCC.

He said that in the spirit of Sallah and having served Lagos well with utmost dedication and integrity, his record is very clear and his mind joyful for the opportunity to have served the state diligently.

In a statement on Friday by his media aide, Habib Aruna, Ambode said while he did not intend to join issues with the anti-corruption agency at this time especially as there has been no communication between him and the commission on this issue, it is pertinent to clarify what he believed was a misleading import of the press statement on Tuesday.

According to the former governor, the accounts in question that were frozen by the Federal High Court belong to the Lagos State Government and not him or any individual.

“Those accounts were opened in the course of normal operations by the Lagos State Government for its administrative purposes and not for the former Governor’s personal transactions as was being wrongly insinuated and have been operated to ensure smooth operations of government activities by previous and present administrations. The former Governor was not and will never be involved in any unauthorized use of government property and resources.

“We strongly believe that after four demanding years as Chief Executive of Lagos State, Mr. Ambode is entitled to some deserved rest with his family and loved ones without the unwarranted attacks on his well-earned reputation,” the statement said.

Ambode also extended warm Sallah greetings to President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Bola Tinubu, and the entire leadership of his party.

He also wished Lagosians well in the spirit of the season.

He might not win this battle!!!

He's always on the defense, Lagos politics does not like that!!!

Instead of being proactive, he's reactive

If he did not take the right step, he's dead politically

Even Fashola was not this docile! He is always active and in the news but ever since Ambode stepped down, he just went in waiting for any attack so that he can react undecided

No wonder he couldn’t retain the governor seat. Simple comprehension is hard for him.
The allegation is particularly about an accomplice’s account not his in particular.
He is linked to the matter because of his position as governor when Lagos State made huge deposits, allegedly authorized by him into the same account.
This his lame duck defense does not absolve him of any involvement but could only be seen as distraction from the main issue.

If Nigeria was suppose to be a nation, Nigeria government would have be paying citizens welfare allowance every week into each one's bank accouts. Irrespective of who account holders.


Nigeria is a very big shame to Africa.

I can see those muddy clowns shooting Tinubu.

You'll think Tinubu is the one feeding their parents kerosene at home.

Those guys better go and put their houses in order cos as at today, Enugu, Abia and Imo don't have leaders. Anambra is busy building prisons for their children.

Where was your father when a Yoruba man was leading the only offensive of the Biafra army during the war? Even Ojukwu the Igbo man ran away for Effiong to surrender.

It is not his. Try add the bank account if you have online banking and see what will come up. They are just trying to rubbish the man even more, after kicking him out. That account, when added is Lagos state government. They know that many Nigerians do not use their brain and will eat all shiits fed to them. simple undecided
