Nigeria Decides

Tinubu speaks on Bourdillion bullion van videos, rigging plan



National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has denied alleged plans to rig the 2019 general elections by mobilising both money and electorate materials from his house at Bourdillion apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Tinubu, shortly after casting his vote at his polling booth in Alausa, Lagos, said he has a right to his own money and not in custody of public funds.

A video making the rounds on social media showed bullion vans allegedly stuffed with either money or electoral materials, emerging from an apartment said to be Tinubu’s residence in Ikoyi.

Addressing reporters, Tinubu said: “Bullion vans, are those ballot papers? Where am I voting now? Is it my money or government’s money? I don’t work for government. I am not in any agency of government and let anyone come out to say I have taken any contract from the government of President Muhammadu Buhari of APC in the last five years. They should prove it.
