Popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho), has revealed what happened when he met with the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Sunday Igboho during an Instagram Live Chat with popular journalists, Dele Momodu, revealed that he met Tinubu at his bourdillon residence in Lagos.
According to him, he met the APC National Leader during the build-up to a governorship election in Ondo State involving former Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
He revealed that former Governor of Oyo State, Rasheed Ladoja, told him that Tinubu wanted to see him (Igboho).
Igboho said he travelled to Lagos and met with Tinubu who persuaded him not to support the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), because the party impeached Ladoja as governor of Oyo State in 2006.
He said that Tinubu then gave him the sum of N2million to fuel his vehicle back to his base.
“I once met with Tinubu during the build-up to the governorship election of Mimiko in Ondo State. I supported his opponent during the campaign but my father, Senator Rasheed Adewolu Ladoja, told me Bola wanted to see me. Ladoja also asked me to please Tinubu in every way.
“Tinubu later called me on the phone and asked me to meet him at his Bourdillon residence in Lagos. I honoured the invitation and went to Lagos.
“At his residence, Tinubu urged me not to support the PDP in the Ondo State Governorship Election. He told me that the PDP frustrated Ladoja in office as governor and eventually impeached him. Tinubu added that it was payback time for the PDP.
“I pledged my cooperation and left the place but before leaving his residence, he gave me N2m to fuel my vehicle. That was the last time I met him. Tinubu is still alive and he can attest to this,” he said.
