Tinubu Already Wealthy Before Politics, Says Dele Alake

According to Vanguard, Mr Dele Alake who is the Director of Strategic Communication of the All Progressives Congress APC Presidential Campaign Council, has defended the source of income of the party’s presidential flagbearer, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, saying he has known him to be wealthy before politics.

Mr Alake spoke about Tinubu’s wealth during an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

Asked about the source of the former Lagos Governor’s wealth, he said, What I know is that right from his days in the normal world, he has been trading in stocks, and he himself said so.

He attributed the source of Tinubu’s wealth to investment in the stocks of blue chip companies.

Alake said, He made his money well before he got into office.

I know that when you trade in stocks and you are a wealthy person, you know how to juggle the stock market and all of that. Those who are adept at it know what I am talking about. They wouldn’t start questioning how he made his money from stocks.

Alake, however did not disclose whether or not Tinubu owns or has investments in any company in Nigeria.

Alake who said that, what is his business with the company that Tinubu owns in Nigeria? If tomorrow you become like Bola Ahmed Tinubu, why should he be bothering about the companies you own as long as it is not proved that you have stolen the money from your country or state or whatever company you work for?

It is not proven and you are not indicted in any court of law. Why should I now be bothering myself?
