A former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, last week, responded to the allegations leveled against him by a former leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Chief Tom Ikimi, describing Ikimi as a liar. He said Ikimi who recently left APC was a mole for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Ikimi had in a statement, accused Tinubu of being a dictator in the APC. He further alleged that on the eve of the party’s national convention in June, Tinubu had a meeting with the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, over an oil deal. He also accused Tinubu of conniving with the PDP leadership to double cross a former presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, in 2011, by urging party leaders to work for President Goodluck Jonathan.
Tinubu, however said, he ordinarily would not have responded to Ikimi’s blackmail as he knews Ikimi’s style. He said Ikimi was never sincerely committed to the party, he was always playing out on PDP script.
