TRIXX NG reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has unveiled a brief documentary of his life, journey and achievements.

 

The documentary video was posted on Twitter by Jubril Gawat, a media aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, the former governor.

 

In the documentary video, Tinubu denied ownership of some properties in Lagos linked to him. Such properties include Oriental Hotel and Civic Center.

Recall the aftermath of the 2020 ENDSARS protest, some media houses linked to Tinubu were attacked. They include The Nation newspaper, Television Continental and Max Radio.

 

 

Speaking in the documentary, Tinubu, who was governor between 1999 and 2007, said he does not own the Oriental Hotel and other properties linked to him but that his administration invested resources to clear the dumps at the place where the hotel and the civic centre are located.

 

“I have converted a liability confronting Lagos to an asset of great value. Along Ozumba Mbadiwe, we used to pick dead bodies. People have forgotten truck pushers in those areas. You have the dirties coastline along Ozumba Mbadiwe all through the Lekki corridor.

 

“I brought private investors, hospitality— they created the boat club, the Civic Center that is of great value to many people today—that was a refuse dump. Nobody would easily remember that Oriental Hotel was a refuse dump— a mile of refuse along that corridor. It took several months of escalating and a great investment for those investors to take the risk. The majority of those assets they claim are mine are not mine.

 

“I created an economic and recovery path for Lagos. There is no state that can brag of the exponential development that is going on in the Lekki Corridor,” he said.
