Tinubu Denies Ownership Of Oriental Hotels, Other Assets ‘Linked’ To Him by Maxymilliano(m): 12:18pm On Sep 05, 2022
There have been speculations that Mr Tinubu owns the Oriental Hotel and other properties in the Lekki axis of Lagos.

The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has disclosed that most properties like Oriental Hotels, Civic Center and other properties in Lagos linked to him are not his.

Mr Tinubu, in a documentary on his achievements as Lagos State Governor, said he only provided the environment for investors to invest on the Lekki Corridor.

In the excerpt posted on Twitter by Jubril Gawat, a media aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the former governor said the entire Lekki Corridor was a refuse dump that took months to clear.

Oriental Hotels

There have been speculations about the ownership of the Oriental Hotel located along the popular Ozumba Mbadiwe road.

In the aftermath of the Lekki shooting in 2020, the hotel was targeted by hoodlums on the ground that the asset belonged to Mr Tinubu.

The event prompted the Western Metal Product Company, the owners of the facilities, to issue a statement about ownership of the hotel.

The Executive Director of WEMCO, Taiwo Ali, had disclosed that the WEMCO group has 99 per cent of the shares of the hotels.


In the course of the 2020 ENDSARS violence, several media outlets linked to Mr Tinubu were set ablaze. They are The Nation newspaper, Television Continental and Max Radio.

I don’t own those properties

Speaking in the documentary, Mr Tinubu, who was governor between 1999 and 2007, said he does not own the Oriental Hotel and other properties linked to him but that his administration invested resources to clear the dumps at the place where the hotel and the civic centre are located.

“I have converted a liability confronting Lagos to an asset of great value. Along Ozumba Mbadiwe, we used to pick dead bodies. People have forgotten truck pushers in those areas. You have the dirties coastline along Ozumba Mbadiwe all through Lekki corridor.

“I brought private investors, hospitality— they created the boat club, the Civic Center that is of great value to many people today—that was a refuse dump. Nobody would easily remember that Oriental Hotel was a refuse dump— a mile of refuse along that corridor. It took several months of escalating and a great investment for those investors to take the risk. Majority of those assets they claim are mine are not mine.

“I created an economic and recovery path for Lagos. There is no state that can brag of the exponential development that is going on in the Lekki Corridor,” he said.


Mr Tinubu is facing a lot of questions about his source of wealth as well as his health ahead of the commencement of campaign on 28 September in line with INEC timetable and schedule of activities.

Another PM Express news for Nyamiris to masturbate on.


A cursed fellow was telling me OBI will win in the south west because the yoruba christians will vote for Peter. And the "Liberal and woke'' yoruba muslim will vote for Peter too. Leaving the other "extreme" muslims to share their vote between Tinubu, Atiku.

Lols.

Alice in wonderland dreamy doomed political analyses. Let it be known, to you and your tribal bigot religion divider Igbo brothers that we in the SOUTH WEST are ONE. United before politics.

The Muslims also don't know of any liberal or woke ones. We are all slaves of Allah(All praises be to Him). We are one. Stop trying to divide us just as you lots are scattered all over the place without any significant political influence of your own. Trying to drag, divide, and turn people against each other.

Take your stupid confusion creating ideology and strategy away because it is bound to fail.

Nonsense children of hate. Causing problems for people everywhere while their region is drowning in extreme poverty and riddled with unrepentant corrupt leaders. Face your South East , we will deal with ours.

The owners of Oriental Hotels had to cry out when Nnamdi Kanu directed his arsonists to burn down the place. Very wicked soul.

If you support Tinubu you must belong to one these groups:

1. Those who support Tinubu because it's a chance to gain power and loot like Buhari's relations and cronies are doing now. (These are the people that will benefit from the govt)

2. Those who support Tinubu because he is Yoruba. (Ask yourself, is the country better for the common man in the North who supported Buhari for the same reasons or are we all suffering together??)

3. Those who support Tinubu because they hate the Igbo (Lock your room, sit down alone and ask yourself "what has an Igbo person ever done to me??" These politicians divid us with ethnicity and hatred for each other because that is the only they can rule us).

I rest my case.

“I created an economic and recovery path for Lagos. There is no state that can brag of the exponential development that is going on in the Lekki Corridor,” he said.

The above is very true. The entire lekki corridor was a pile of garbage as at 1999. In fact, most parts from Lekki to Ajah were bushes with few developments. Tinubu changed everything and the Lekki corridor is now the fastest developing area in Nigeria with multi billion naira investment in property and businesses.

If we ask Peter Obi to show us the business and private areas he developed from scratch to a huge prosperous community when he was governor, his supporters will start abusing us.

You don’t have to like Tinubu to acknowledge his brilliance and accomplishments. He’s the best brain by far in the presidential contest and that’s why people like us are queuing behind him. With him as president, a Nigeria with shared prosperity is guaranteed.

Were we expecting him to accept? No, because if he does, the next question will be "how did you get the money "?
And his answer will be, "ewa, garri, cassava and agbado
Nothing coherent at all

During the endsars protest, tinubu played himself big time by picking that call, if u know sey u get a top seat ambition, ur line wey dey available to the general public suppose dey one pesin hand wey go dey help u dey manage am, what those perpetrators need then was just ur voice make dem attach am to the fire that is already burning and viola, they got it...
It still won't change anything coz dey won't stop believing that a bloody civilian ordered military men to shoot civilian they had sworn to protect...make the narrative continue to dey play for their head...

Here:

donaldking100:
BEFORE TINUBU BECAME GOVERNOR OF LAGOS STATE, HE HAD NONE OF THESE.
1. Oriental Hotel
2. Falomo Shopping Complex
3. First Nation Airline
4. Lekki Concession Company
5. Apapa Amusement Park
6. Maiyegun Land Project
7. De Nation
8. Renaissance Hotel
9. Tejuoso Market (Joint ownership)
10. Ikeja Shopping Mall
11. TV Continental
12. Converted Lagos Poly land for TVC
13. Owned NNPC Office building in Lagos
14. Radio Continental
15. Owned School of Nursing building in Lagos
16. Tax Collector of Lagos State (Alpha Beta)
17. Wife is a member of the National Assembly
18. Son-in-law is a member of the National Assembly
19. Daughter is the President-General of Market Women Association in Lagos
20. N4 billion government financed property for self at Queens Drive, Lagos.
Tinubu acquired all of the above and many more not listed after he became Governor of Lagos State, first in 1999 and won his second term in 2003.
He remains Governor Emeritus of Lagos, controlling the State’s treasury through his protege & ass-licking Governors.
If you don't agree to lick his ass like Ambode, he would look for excuses to push you out of Government.
Is that really the kinda greedy tyrant you want ruling Nigeria?
A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE.

MODIFIED; Many of the moderators know this is true, & many of them are corrupt and are low-key working for Tinubu.
I posted this on another thread yesterday where it got more than 400 likes, just checked this morning & it has been removed.
but all the tribalistic comments about Obi weren't deleted.
I wouldn't be surprised if this gets removed too.
But that wouldn't deter me from still campaigning for a better Nigeria.

Tinubu did literally nothing in Lagos that made any significant impact. Lagos was the former FCT and had a functional ports that facilitates business, what exactly did he do in that state apart from agberoism so as to hold on to power in that state.
Then on leaving he apportioned x3 salary to himself as pension, meaning, as an ex governor, he earns more than a sitting governor.

Everyday he nags us about how he made Lagos heaven.
Nonsense and ingredients

lie about his name
lie about his state of origin

and you feel the same man will tell you truth about his ownership of Oriental Hotel?
