All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain Tunde Bank-Anthony has said that the popular story in the media that Bola Tinubu built Lagos was not true.
He stated that former governors late Jakande, Fashola and Ambode are the fathers of modern Lagos.
The APC chieftain said it would be unfair to credit the development of Lagos state to Bola Tinubu who did nothing tangle.
Tunde Bank-Anthony stated this while speaking on Channels TV live programme on Wednesday.
He said, “The people that succeeded Asiwaju (Tinubu), BRF succeeded him and his eight years was more visible than Bola Tinubu’s eight years…He (Tinubu) cannot claim glory for what they did; it’s not possible.”
Bank-Anthony, who is also a spokesperson for Concerned Lagosians, said Tinubu is not the founder of modern Lagos and his men should not trivialize the contributions of Ambode and Fashola in Lagos or make them inferior to Tinubu’s.
He said, “I read something not too long ago, the chairman of the party in Lagos said Ambode did not follow the blueprint of Lagos. What is the blueprint of Lagos? It should be online for people to see.”
On why Ambode could not get the party’s ticket for re-election, the APC chieftain said, “The primary was held in Lagos, Clement Ebri was in Lagos and he said it loud and clear that there was no primary but he later turned around and said, ‘Okay, let’s accept it like that.”
He added that “Ambode was a loyal party man and he stood by it and accepted it. And he has never made a comment about it since that day but people are insinuating so many things about him.”
