Lagos Must Prove Seyi Tinubu Doesn’t Control Tollgates — Bode George by RuudVanNisteroy: 3:45pm On Feb 19
Lagos govt must prove Tinubu’s son doesn’t control tollgates —Bode George

A former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Bode George, has called on the Lagos State Government to prove that the son of an All Progressives Congress leader, Seyi Tinubu, does not own or control the Lekki tollgate.

George called on the Lagos State Government to do this by honouring Freedom of Information requests and revealing the terms of agreement between the Lekki Concession Company and the state government.

The PDP chieftain said this in a statement on Friday titled, “We Must Withdraw from the Brink”.

He said the state government must address allegations that Tinubu’s son and his former Chief of Staff, Sunday Dare, who is now the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, control the tollgate.

The PDP chieftain recalled that the state government had changed the terms of the concession years ago and paid off the LCC.

He, therefore, wondered why tolls were still being collected from Lagosians.

George said, “We are demanding that the Lagos State Government through the Freedom of Information Act publishes the names of those who are managing the Toll Gates.

“We do remember however that there was a buy-back several years ago returning the control and ownership of the Admiralty Tollgate to the Lagos State Government. The Lekki-Ikoyi Tollgate was built from scratch with taxpayers money.


“How then can anyone/company inexplicably make a legal claim to the Lekki toll gates? Again, what is the relationship between Seyi Tinubu and Lekki Concession Company?

“Equally, what is the relationship between Sunday Dare and the Lekki Concession Company? We all know that Sunday Dare until he became Minister last year was Bola Tinubu’s Man Friday. There are too many untidy, dirty, stinking intimations here. That’s why we demand that the details of the tollgate ownership should be presented to the public immediately.”

The PDP chieftain argued that since the tollgate was the epicentre of the #EndSARS protests where unarmed demonstrators were shot, the state government should demolish it and erect a monument in its stead.

He said there was nowhere in the world where a single stretch of road would have two toll plazas as is the case along the Lekki-Epe Expressway.

“George added, “In fact how much is Lagos State earning from these two tollgates per day, per month, and annually? It is alleged that an estimated N400m is collected on both tollgates everyday. If we are wrong, let them bring out their books and tell us how this humongous money is being spent.


“I have gone to this length to illustrate what could go wrong when there is a brazen interloper and a destructive tin-pot despot who has handcuffed the government of our state.

“This overbloated character is obsessed with the interests of the privileged few to the detriment of the majority of our citizens.”

George urged the Federal Government to tackle the tendencies towards nepotism and prejudicial preferences that are basically injurious to national unity.

He argued that the seemingly intractable clashes between herdsmen and farmers across the nation which are now more pronounced in the South-West can only be stopped with the outright banning of open grazing.

The PDP chieftain said the open grazing in forests, in the farms and even in the cities is wrong, archaic, deleterious to the economy itself.

He added, “The corralling and the ranching of cows are the model in Argentina, Brazil and all other beef-producing nations of the world.

“This is the time that President Muhammadu Buhari demonstrates a rallying unifying leadership to bring all our people together.

“Surely, this is not the time for ethnic or sectarian jingoism. This is the time for healing. This is the time to mend the broken places and rectify the pervasive wrongs.”

The PUNCH learnt that Dare had earlier in the week denied owning a stake in the Lagos tollgates while Tinubu’s son admitted to only controlling the advert display boards at the toll plaza.

Bode George is getting old so let’s just allow Baba to rant in peace.

Everyday Tinubu this Tinubu that, it’s now like it’s Tinubu that control everyone’s life in Nigeria now down from North to South.

An Igbo man will blame Tinubu
Hausa man will blame Tinubu
Yoruba man will blame Tinubu
SS minority tribe will blame Tinubu.

Call a dog a bad name to hang it.

We all see the bank document where Seyi Tinubu media company was paying money to the LCC account and a sensible person will ask why someone controlling LCC will start paying them again for transaction.

Let’s even say it’s a decoy by Seyi, but sensible people should be fair in their assessment instead of believing every rubbish people say about the Tinubu family just because you hate the man.

When a state is run like a mafia organization and refuses to publish financials and the legal agreement from Freedom of Information requests regarding LCC and Alpha Beta, it gives room for people like Bode George to ask for accountability.

Actually, I think the Op is in rehabilitation because he has drastically reduced the number of Tinubu-related threads he opens on Nairaland. He used to open 3 to 4 threads on Tinubu daiily, but now it's down to 2 or 3 every 3 days. That to me is baby-step progress so let's cut him some slack.

But why is it hard for the state to abide by the tenets of FoI? Is accountability no more one of the most important characteristics of a good governance?

That the treasuries of a whole state should become a booty to a politician and his family in this modern age smirks of what is observable in a gang run economy.

Tinubu is not his real name, he was adopted, he is not a genuine Yoruba, take a look at all of what Thiefnubu as done, is it to the progress of the West like them Awos and Jakande selfless did or is to enrich his private pockets and that of his cohort at the expense of the backwardness of the Yoruba West ? Like Ganiyu Adamu the half fulani-tapa mixed Yoruba, Tinubu, is one of those half breed Yoruba-Fulani who understands better than to serve as a puppet to the fulani pigheads who think themselves oligarchs of the emirate north, thiefnubu who once wrote Abacha's public speeches has done everything in his capacity to favor the foolanis who have a reason to believe expired nigeria is their property but forgot there were indigenous ethnic nationalities before Lugard the sociopath forged nigeria into existence. Their stranglehold on all the various tribes of north whom they call hausawa (bastards) is loosening and one day all their manipulation of turning every indigenous natives against each other has been known to all. Beware of many thiefnubu and fulani-tapa-yoruba ganiyu Adamu who pretend to have Yoruba interest in mind, these mogrels are everywhere doing the work assigned to them by fulanis (bedbugs) spreading misinformation to have us quarrel and fight ourselves by causing confusion with how they twist history and facts on social media. There are many like them allover the South. Be aware.

An example is this one below on nairaland

AmbaliJ:

What is this one saying? Why e be say na only online you ipob touts dey show muscle? Instead of focusing on how you people will release the remaining ipobs being tortured in Abuja dungeons, you are here bleating like an e-goat? Shey na Yoruba people kill and arrest your brothers for Obigbo? Answer me? The Wike that is behind ibo sufferings in Rivers is eating Ofensala as we speak, but you are here abusing Yoruba people. When will you ibo people be wise? What will it take for you people to receive sense??
Notice how this pigheads baztards fulani brought Yoruba into his comment to decieve Igbos into thinking Yorubas are not for the deamalgamation of the expired contraption called Nigeria which has only favoured the landless fulani black Arabs. Many of these bedbugs and mongrels are all over social network in stirring up confusion, hatred and disunity among native indigenous people. Beware of them. There are many of these pigheads mongrels doing their bedbugging every peace loving separationists both offline and online. They have thousand of their half-breed fulanis Yorubas, fulanis Igbos planted as seeds within our communities doing damage from within. But they will all FAIL as is their destiny to. The rise of Odudualand and Biafraland is inevitable. If not for the colonial greed of the British who amalgamated us with the mongrelized black arabs who naturally are alien to Africa, we won't be in this mess today. Nigeria, a mere geographic expression have technically expired in 2014 after 100years of its forceful union called amalgamation in 1914.

hmohammed:


Go to your state and ask for documents abeg. Leave Lagos matter
You are a fulani mongrel doing your paid job. Lagos and all of odudualand doesn't belong to you landless fulanis pigheads baztards. Why is it always you fulanis in disguise that bring into your comments talks that are divisive between Yorubas and Igbos? You all pigheads baztards terrorists do it everytime so that ignorant Yoruba and Igbo will fall for the deception of seeing each other as disunited just as you fingered the Modakeke against the Ife to cause wars among them, just like you did to the original natives of the northern region which your fulani paymaster called hausawa (baztard) and called yorubanza (Yoruba/Yoruba (bastard) RuudVanNisteroy is absolutely correct to repeat the truth here as everyone knows what you're denying by bringing an unrelated thing to the talk. He said Lagos (Yorubaland) is run by a mafia organization which is correct and instead of you to counter it, you ask him to go back to his state, everyone now knows all the states in Nigeria are made by landless fulani baztards during the military era in a way to strengthen the political hold of the foolani oligarchs who are running the affairs of a region they believe is now their emirate while massacring the various indigenous tribes by unleasing fulanis terrorists disguise as herdsmen, bandits and unknown gunmen to kill infidels just to satisfy your blood sucking monster worshipped as god by miyetti-allah.
