BOLA-TINUBU3



The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, recently revealed his discussions with the late Brigadier General Mobolaji Johnson after Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo seized the statutory allocations of Lagos State in 2005.

Tinubu disclosed that Johnson had asked him to ignore Obasanjo and focus on re-engineering Lagos State, which he did and it paid off.

In 2005, Obasanjo had seized Lagos State statutory allocation over Tinubu’s decision to create additional 37 Local Council Development Areas, LCDAs.

in spite of that, the Ex-Lagos Governor while speaking at the Day of Tributes for Mobolaji Johnson at the Onikan Stadium on Tuesday said: “Johnson embarked on re-engineering and assembling the best cabinet to show transparency at that time.

“He showed courage and strong determination for the benefit of Lagos State. His retirement was sudden following the coup in 1975. He lived a life of great contentment.

“We bid farewell to a man of great integrity. My time with him was at a critical time when I was facing another general who seized the money of Lagos State. He said governor, ignore that man and re-engineer Lagos State. I wish him eternal rest.

“He did not compromise in his profession. He left a good legacy in public service. He laid a durable foundation for Lagos State. He served the people and made them the cornerstone of social and economic policies.”
