Did Tinubu Pioneer ECONET, TSA, Economic Summit In Nigeria? Fact Check by Kwanza: 1:43pm On Jun 27, 2022
A Facebook post by one Tokunbo AremoOdua has been shared across other platforms and forwarded on WhatsApp many times.

The post claimed that the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu initiated ECONET, Treasury Single Account (TSA), tax digitalization, Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) and economic summit to proffer solutions for economic prosperity in Nigeria.

It also claimed that Tinubu was the first and last governor to govern his state for years without federal allocation during the Obasanjo Administration.

As of the time of this report, the post had amassed about 317 likes, 69 shares, and 247 comments and has reached multiple groups on WhatsApp.

Verification

Checks by Daily Trust revealed that while Tinubu played a role in the evolution of ECONET in Lagos State, it does not mean he brought ECONET to Nigeria. He was Governor of Lagos State when the federal government auctioned the telecommunication network through the Nigeria Communication Commission. Lagos was mentioned as one of the two states that supported the licence fee financially.

Victor Asemota, a popular tech twitter influencer also stated that “Lagos state was only involved in its founding through the acquisition of secondary shares, after much deliberations. The then governor did not commit to Cybertel until after Delta State, Oceanic and the Akwa Ibom State government had gotten involved.”

Also the claim that Tinubu introduced the TSA in Nigeria is false. Rather, it was proposed by the federal government in 2012 during the former President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration and was fully implemented by the current administration to consolidate all inflows from all agencies of government into a single account at the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Similarly, the claim that the former Lagos State governor started the economic summit in Nigeria is not true. The Nigeria Economic Summit Group was incorporated in 1996 by Chief Ernest Shonekan.

The that Tinubu created the independent power project in the country is equally false. It was introduced by the federal government to combat the power shortage in the country.

Daily Trust also found the claim that Tinubu was the first and last governor to govern his state (Lagos) for years without federal allocation misleading. The then former President Olusegun Obasanjo-led government only withheld the local government funds of Lagos State when Tinubu created LCDAs against the approval of the federal government.

However, a claim in the post that Tinubu pioneered LCDA is true

Conclusion

Daily Trust can confirm that while it is true that Tinubu created LCDA, he was not the pioneer of other initiatives contained in the claims made by the author of the post. Therefore, the claims are largely false.

This fact check was done in partnership with the Center for Democracy and Development (CDD).

Yekini Amoda Ogunlere aka Bola Tinubu brought thuggery and agberoism to Nigeria. A leopard doesn't change its spot. He was a drug dealing rascal in Chicago where he was known as Bobo Chicago. He returned to Nigeria and unleashed his recruited thugs on innocent Nigerians

I can tell you for free that whatever claim you see or hear about tinubu doing this or that, is either half truth, full lies, falsifications, or just baseless non existing stuffs.

For years now, the masses have been fed with bull crap that president obasanjo held the full Lagos state federal allocations. Meanwhile what was held was the allocation for local governments, which was due to the creation of the then illegal Lcda's by tinubu administration.

it's the same game they are playing with Lagos , trying to discredit all the legacies he left in Lagos. Yet no politician in this generation has achieved his feats in governance. Not even the former vice president running for president.

Nigerian politics is still wide off the mark in terms of reason and logic.


Very many of us never expected the APC to survive it's Presidential convention but it did and now the incumbency factor of the APC along with Tinubu's dominance in the West will be a little too much to handle for Atiku and Obi.

The sad reality is that a vast majority of voters still would make their votes on the basis of ethnicity, religion and monetary inducement.

Only a very small minority will make any form of issue-induced voting.
2023 comes a tad early for that.


At the end Tinubu will win the Presidential election, followed closely by Atiku.

Peter will come 3rd by a distance.


That's the harsh reality.
