Breaking: Ayo Adebanjo Seeks Probe of Tinubu’s Source of Wealth, Explains How He Built His Own House

Thursday, December 16, 2021 at 9:06 AM

• Leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has called for Bola Tinubu's probe

• Adebanjo said this in reaction to the allegation raised in chief Bisi Akande, in his book, My Participations

• Also, the Yoruba leader also took time to explain how he built his house in Lekki, refuting Akande's claim that Tinubu built it for him



Finally, Chief Ayo Adebanjo has reacted to an allegation made by Chief Bisi Akande, in his book, My Participations. Akande, a former interim chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the book claimed that the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, built a house for Adebanjo in Lekki, Lagos.

In his reaction, Adebanjo, leader of the Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, denied this claim in a press statement, Sahara Reporters reports.

According to him, he only responded to set the records straight as there had been pressure on him not to reply a “fool”.

The property in question is at Plot 25, Ayo Adebanjo Close, Off Adebayo Doherty Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos State.

Adebanjo, therefore, called on the anti-graft agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate his position on the matter, adding that the EFCC should also be authorized to investigate Tinubu’s source of wealth for him to have allegedly built properties for Akande and bankrolled the elections involving the APC in the South-West and President Muhammadu Buhari at the national level.

PRESS STATEMENT BY CHIEF AYO ADEBANJO, LEADER OF AFENIFERE IN RESPONSE TO THE ALLEGATION MADE BY CHIEF BISI AKANDE IN HIS BOOK “MY PARTICIPATION” TO THE EFFECT THAT CHIEF BOLA TINUBU BUILT MY HOUSE IN LEKKI FOR ME, ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2021.

AT MY HOUSE PLOT 25, AYO ADEBANJO CLOSE OFF ADEBAYO DOHERTY STREET, LEKKI PHASE 1, LAGOS STATE.

Gentlemen of the press,

About a week ago, last Thursday, 7 December to be exact at the presentation of the book “MY PARTICIPATION” by Chief Bisi Akande it was said that Chief Bisi Akande stated in the book that I brought pressure on Bola Tinubu to build the house for me.

But since Bola Tinubu himself was present at the presentation I expect him within a few days to refute such a malicious falsehood about me emanating from his Man Friday.


I hold this view because Bola Tinubu just some 3 years ago on the occasion of the presentation of my auto-biography “SAYING IT AS IT IS ” that for my incorruptibility and strength of character he Bola Tinubu would not have been Governor of Lagos State in 1999.

What then could he be demanding from me after his two term governorship to make me pressurize him to build a house for me, when I did not get a naira from him before he became the governor?

There has been a lot of pressure on me not to react to Chief Bisi Akande’s tantrums, he is a neophyte, a beneficiary of a struggle he never took part in.

I have been urged to keep to the adage not to “Answer a fool less you reduce yourself to his level, but there is also an adage that says, “Answer a fool less he thinks he is wise”.

A lot has been said in the press and the social media to demolish tantrums.

But I owe a duty to myself and to put the record straight for posterity about the big lie that Bola Tinubu built my house in Lekki for me.

I therefore deny categorically that my house at Lekki was built with my resources through the sale of 3 developed properties, loan from GTBank and the sale of undeveloped landed property given me by my late leader Chief Obafemi Awolowo of blessed memory
.
The details are as follows:

A 4 bedroom duplex with 2 bedroom flat enclosed with 2 undeveloped plots at plot 4, block 14, Nuru Oniwo Street, Aguda Surulere, Lagos State, this is where I was living before moving to Lekki.

The house was commissioned in 1972 by Chief Obafemi Awolowo.

A wing of the duplex was once occupied by a staff of the security outfit then known as “special branch” headed then by the late Alhaji M.D. Yussuf who later became Inspector General of Police when General Olusegun Obasanjo was the Head of State.

It was later occupied by one of the wives Chief Pius Akinyelure, who often visit his wife there in company of Senator Bola Tinubu.

The gate of this property was forced open by Abacha security forces when NADECO was holding a sendoff party for American ambassador Walter Carrington in my house, I took the Federal Government to court for damages and I was awarded #1million naira which has not been paid till today by the Federal Government, Mr. Olisa Agbakoba SAN, was my counsel.

The house was sold to St Baths Aglican Church, Aguda, Surulere.
Two storey building at Odedola Street, Surulere, Lagos State.

I bought it through an Estate Agent by name Mr. Shiwoniku who has relocated to UK, he has a brother who is a legal practitioner in Abuja.

The house was sold to a Ghanaian by name Mr Akappo.

He is still alive and he lives in one of the flat in the building.
Four storey building with a warehouse on the ground floor and six flats on top. It was commissioned by Chief Awolowo in 1977.

I inherited the plot of 45’X100’ from my mother Salamotu Anomo-Adebanjo, who built a bungalow on it.

She bought the land when I was in primary school in 1940 from one Pa. Idowu Onitiri for £20, which she paid by installment of £10, £7, £3. His son Akanbi Onitiri, executed the conveyance for me without extra payment after showing him the purchase receipts from his father, when I was developing it in 1976. Akanbi Onitiri is the father of Sumbo Onitiri, a well known estate surveyor in Lagos.
The building was sold to a woman through an estate agent.

I then took a loan from GTBank to complete the house in Lekki where I am living now.

When the interest on the loan became unbearable, I was compelled to sell the undeveloped land given to me by Chief Awolowo in Dide-Olu Estate in Maroko Victoria Island. One Mr. Ade Otusanya a friend of my son Femi Ayo-Adebanjo bought the land.

The contractor who built my Lekki house is Engr. Hakeem Sulaiman, Senior Partner of Messrs HA associates.

The Electrical and Mechanical Contractor is Engr. Tokunbo Oshokoya, Senior Partner of Messrs Oshea Projects.


The Architect is Mr. Deji Johnson
The Quantity Surveyor is the late Otunba T.B Adebayo.


The Lekki property, the house in my village, Isanya Ogbo, and 3 Bedroom flat in a town house, at Omorinre Street in Lekki are the properties I have in the whole world.


I hereby authorize the EFCC to verify the above facts.
It is alleged that Chief Bisi Akande’s building at Ila-Orogun, which I understand is more than double in expanse of my house in Lekki and some other properties he has in Lagos and abroad were financed by Bola Tinubu. His house in Ibadan was also alleged to have been built by the contractor that built the secretariat in Oshogbo, when he was the Governor of Osun State.


I hereby challenge Chief Bisi Akande to clear the air by disclosing the source of financing these properties as I have done above
.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the great philanthropist should also disclose the source of his wealth with which he bankrolled the elections of APC in the Southwest and that of General Muhammad Buhari and his various properties in Lagos.

He should also authorize the EFCC to verify such details as I have done above.


Thank you very much.
God bless Nigeria
CHIEF AYO ADEBANJO

Well I can give u a direction. Start from his second day in office during his first tenure as the governor of Lagos State. I remember all those times he first contested for governor of Lagos and lost. His face looked like someone who was being cheated and finally, Lagosians threw in their support for him to win....he became a King Kong and started feeling he can do anything he wants and get away with it including....make I off my mic, because even the ones seen with the naked eyes is false under this devilish government. Nija don cast las las, and is presently irredeemable!!! I came cum in peace!!!

Well detailed let's wait and see if akande will set up a panel to come up with a white paper.

Sorry to say but akande doesn't behave his age, following tinubu around like an errand boy and laughing sheepishly

embarassed We all know how the Baron made his ill gotten wealth na.

Gathered from a reliable source that the reason behind his fallout with ambode was that he requested for 3 billion naira from the then governor, forgetting that he hasn't hanged up the call, the governor started complaining. So the Baron heard him & promised to deal with him

If these are Igbos, some idiots will be saying that Igbos are Igbos' enemies. BTW, there's nothing wrong with asking that the right thing be done.

Since 2015, the EFCC announced that they were probing Fashola, Amaechi and other members of Buhari's kitchen cabinet.

Anyone can borrow money to develop infrastructure, including my late grandma. The best thing Buhari should have done for this country would have been to strengthen its anti-graft agencies.

Waste of time, everybody knows Buhari has no such liver. Come and see their touts coming out now to defend that he worked in Mobil and he bought 3 helicopters. Forgetting all the lands he is commandeering from Lekki to Sango-tedo to Lakowe. Epe, Badagry!

No evidence from both sides, it's your words against their own words.



That you sold some properties doesn't prove you used the money to build in Lekki.



All the Yoruba people that are against Tinubu Presidential ambition will die of heart attack if another northerner takes over from Buhari.



Tinubu made Buhari president and Buhari gave us the biggest projects in the South West since 1914. We will never regret supporting Buhari.

Tinubu that gave all his family members political position. His wife is senator, his daughter is iyaloja, his in-law is commissioner, his son is In charge of Lagos revenue, his cronies control ever revenue generating organization in lagos. The guy will milk Nigeria dry if allowed to become president. Ole jati jati ni tinubu
