Dr. Damages you are doing a very good job. More grease to your elbow.
In 2003, an Alliance for Democracy (AD) governorship aspirant in Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Olowu deposed to an affidavit at the Federal High Court, Abuja, affirming that Tinubu lied on his age. He stated that on Form CF 001, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu claimed to have been born in Lagos on March 29, 1952 whilst by passport No. A158399 issued by the Federal Republic of Nigeria on 16th February 1988, he claimed to have been born on 29th March, 1954 in Iragbiji, Osun State of Nigeria.
While still in government, Tinubu was also accused of having 16 foreign accounts operated with different names, including those of his children and relatives. The operation of a foreign bank account by a public officer is contrary to Section 7 of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act, Cap 56 Laws of the Federation, 1990 and punishable under Section 23 (2) of the law. The Act is incorporated under Paragraph 18, Part I of the 5th Schedule to the 1999 Constitution.
In-spite of the barrages of criticism, by Prof Abia Damages, the governor called on Jonathan not to give up on the systemic challenges confronting the country, especially security and infrastructure, employment, adding that every nation has one challenge or the other to grapple with.
The foreign bank accounts listed against him in the earlier charge which was just slightly amended by the bureau included; First Heritage Bank, Country Club Hills, Illinois, USA, Account Name: Bola Tinubu, Account No: 263226700.
