The Governor in a recent interview he granted, cleared the air concerning allegations that he owns properties in Dubai.
Quoting him….”Let me tell you, if I have a house in Dubai that should not be a problem and should not be anybody`s headache? If they are not satisfied let them set up an investigation and investigate me. Unfortunately, I don’t have any. If I have I will make known what I have, I am not a coward. Let it be clear that a governor in office or a leader in office is not as if he cannot own a property, are you telling me that a governor in office is not entitled to legitimate earnings? but unfortunately I do not have house in UAE if I have I will declare it. They don’t have clue to this economy. In my prediction, I said president Buhari does not have clue, he is still in an analog stage he does not have clue about the economy of Nigeria. I am saying it expressly, the president does not understand the economy, he doesn’t. If you understand the economy you can do everything simultaneously without rocking the whole boat of your country. You go out of the country telling the whole world that your country is corrupt, you destroy all your whole people and you expect them to do business with your people that is not how to operate. Let me tell you expressly the truth will find all of us out at some point and they say he is coming after me, I am ready.” “I am the longest serving Nigerian governor, I served in Obasanjo administration, I told everyone clearly when Obasanjo left prison did he declare his assets, the library now today where did the money come from, his house in Abeokuta where did the money come from even president Buhari himself declared cattle heads and mud houses. He said he doesn’t have money and from where did the campaign money come from. We are fooling ourselves. Because he is in power prosecuting people today, someone else might be there tomorrow. It is unfortunate that the men of honor of yesterday are quiet today.”
