Plot to nail Tinubu before 2023 thickens as EFCC steps up probe

By Kazeem Ugbodaga

As 2023 presidency draws nearer, the fate of the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu hangs in the balance, as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, steps up his probe.

The EFCC late 2020 wrote the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, asking the body to furnish it with more information on Tinubu’s asset declaration.

Tinubu was governor of Lagos between 1999 and 2007.

New EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who was then Zonal Head of the commission in Lagos then, signed the letter to the CCB for the then Acting Chairman.

It is believed that the appointment of Bawa as EFCC chairman will give him more power to probe Tinubu ahead of 2023.

The information in the letter, obtained by the Peoples Gazette, an online news platform, sought to probe into the eight-year reign of Tinubu as governor of Lagos State.

It is believed that the commission has now gotten more information to think of re-opening the case again.

The letter is marked CR/3000/EFCC/LS/Vol4/322, dated November 6, 2020.

Before the letter, an earlier one was written to the CCB in September 2020 to provide information on Tinubu, which the bureau did.

It appeared that the EFCC was not satisfied.

It wrote another letter for more information on Tinubu on November 6, 2020.

It read: “In view of the above, you are kindly requested to furnish the commission with the outstanding requested information of Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu.

“This request is made pursuant to Section 38(1) and (2) of the EFCC Act 2004.

“While treating as very urgent, accept the assurances of the Acting Executive Chairman’s highest regards, please.”
