Anti-Graft Coalition Urges EFCC, Malami To Probe Tinubu, Fashola

LAGOS AUGUST 1ST (NEWSRANGERS)-The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been asked to probe the administrations of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Minister of Works, Babtunde Raji Fashola (SAN) as governors of Lagos state.

Asiwaju Tinubu was governor of the state between 1999 and 2007 while Fashola also governed the state between 2007 and 2015.

According to the organisation, the law enforcement agencies, over the years, appear uninterested and unwilling to probe allegations of infractions allegedly committed in Lagos under Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Babatunde Fashola as governors.

The coalition asked the anti-corruption agency to undertake a holistic investigation of the two former governors, especially in the areas of land administration, tax collections and other areas.

Parts of allegations the coalition is asking the commission to look into are the development of 1,000 hectares of land for golf course and housing estate by Asset and Resource Management Limited at Lakowe near Ibeju Lekki local government allegedly given to Lekki Concession Company (LCC).

Other allegations the coalition is asking the commission to probe are the 250 hectare of land located at Ajah Junction on Lekki road originally meant for the construction of General Hospital for Eti-Osa local government, transfer of the annex of Lagos state Guest House in Asokoro, Abuja, purchased by the Lagos state government in 2006 for N450 million to protect the main building from security breach, and a 14-hectare Parkview Ikoyi estate foreshore land reclaimed by Lagos state government.
