Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress’ presidential candidate, has denied that he owns Oriental Hotel and other properties in Lagos.
Speaking in a video that was uploaded to Twitter by Jibril Gawat, @Mr JAGs, an aide to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, Tinubu claimed that, in contrast to the claim that he owned the hotel and other assets, he had built a path for the city’s economy.
Tinubu said, “Oriental Hotel was a refuse dump, miles of refuse along that corridor. It took several months of excavation and great investment for those investors to take the risk.
“Majority of those assets they claim are mine are not mine. I createed economic path, a recovery path for Lagos,” he boasted.
