The organizing secretary of the PC in Lagos state, Adewale Ayodele has come in strong defence of the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu over the allegation of having a bullion van at his residence in Budillon in 2019.
The former Lagos state governor was challenged for aiming to buy votes in the build-up to the 2019 general elections when the bullion van was spotted.
Tinubu at that time responded to the claims that the money was for him neither was it for the government.
The APC presidential candidate had said:
“Bullion vans, are those ballot papers? Where am I voting now? Excuse me, is it my money or government money?
“I don’t work for the government, I am not in an agency of government and let anybody come out to say I am taking any contract from the government of President Muhammadu Buhari or APC in the last five years. “They should prove it, I am on my own.”
In Ayodele’s response to the incident while speaking in an interview on The Morning Show of Arise TV he said the bullion van actually missed its address but found a way into Tinubu’s house.
Ayodele said: “I think that matter has been put to rest. There was no money in the bullion van. The bullion van that even came had missed the address to even come there. “It missed the address to have come there that was why it was there.”
