The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has promised to give a substantial amount of money to the party faithfuls, if their votes can secure the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, disclosed that he has enough money to bankroll elections, without requesting any money from Buhari, or dipping his hands in Lagos State’s treasury.
Tinubu said: “For all those who have come to Bourdillon, you know why we are here. We are here for mobilisation. You know what I mean by mobilisation.
“So, as registered APC members, you have to go and get your neighbours to come out and vote for the APC. It is after I have seen the favourable results of the elections, that I will bring out good money.
“Buhari does not have the money that I want to steal, and he does not have the money I want to take from him. Also, he does not have the war chest for this Presidential election.
“Therefore, whatever I am promising you is for real, and it is coming from my own pocket. It is not until I go to Alausa, before I can get money to give you.”
