Gambari, Fashola Others Pay Tinubu Sympathy Visit

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, led South-West ministers on a sympathy visit to the All Progressives Congress’ National Leader, Bola Tinubu, whose properties were damaged during the fallout of the #EndSARS protest, by suspected hoodlums.

They visited the APC leader at his Bourdillon residence in Lagos.

Among those who visited are Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola; Minister of State, Health, Olorunnimbe Mamora; Minister of Information, Lai Mohammad, and Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare.

They were also joined by the Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Many public properties were massively looted, including Television Continental and The Nation newspaper, both of which have been linked to Tinubu.

Some protesters had believed that the toll gate plaza where the soldiers shot at them, was owned by Tinubu.

However, the politician denied making money from the plaza, adding that the rumour of his ownership was politically-motivated.

He said he got prior information that facilities of both The Nation newspaper and TVC were going to be attacked by “certain malevolent elements” hiding under #EndSARS protests, yet he did not send soldiers or policemen there to prevent the attack, because he didn’t want anyone to die.

There is no rationale that can adequately explain why I would order soldiers to repel peaceful protesters from the tollgate, where I have no financial interest, yet, choose to do nothing to protect my investments in The Nation and TVC,” Tinubu said.
