The state chairman of Lago4Lagos Movement, Prince Sunday Ajayi, has denied allegations that he received a bribe of N100 million from the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The allegation has caused rift among members of the movement even as the Movement’s leader, Dr Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor sacked Ajayi “for collecting N100 million bribe.”
The group, which was a part of the Lagos APC recently defected to the Peoples Democratic Party but a fight however broke out on Tuesday after Ajayi was fired by Adediran for serial improprieties.
Adediran is interested in flying the governorship ticket of the Lagos PDP in the 2023 elections.
Ajayi, in a statement on Wednesday, said all the allegations are baseless, stressing that he did not collect any bribe from Tinubu.
He hinged his withdrawal from the Movement on Adediran’s “questionable character and draconian lifestyle.”
His words: “My attention has been drawn to a malicious statement by Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (Jandor) claiming that I collected N100 million from Bola Tinubu.
“For the records, I, Hon. Prince Sunday Ajayi, withdrew from the activities of Lagos4Lagos because of the questionable character and draconian lifestyle of Jandor.
“For someone to accuse me of collecting money from a man I have not spoken to or interacted with in the last three years shows his level of shallowness and confusion.”
The chairman, who revealed that he was warned many times before joining Jandor’s camp, alleged that Adediran usually fought anyone who would oppose his style and actions.
“I dare Jandor to show proof of receipt of such transaction between me and Tinubu, failure upon which I will have no choice but to institute a legal action against him.
“For clarity, Jandor’s latest action is borne out of the frustration he has met in his fruitless quest to get a PDP ticket that was already placed out of his reach from the word go.
“It’s better for him to come out clean on how his arrogant lifestyle has led 70 per cent of the movement to leave Lagos4Lagos,” Ajayi said
