A former lawmaker, Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin who is the Director-General of the 2023 presidential campaign team of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has failed to answer directly a question on Tinubu’s real age and source of wealth.
Appearing during a recent interview on Arise TV, Jibrin was questioned on Tinubu’s real age and source of wealth but he continuously failed to give any direct answer.
Naija News reports that Jibrin is the Director-General, Bola Ahmed Tinubu Support Group Management Council.
Recalling the bullion van that drove into Tinubu’s residence in Lagos during the 2019 general elections in Nigeria, the interviewer sought to know the source of the former Lagos Governor’s wealth.
However, Jibrin was unable to give a categorical response, rather saying such a matter is not of importance when compared to the ability and competence of Tinubu to lead Nigeria.
The ex-lawmaker said issues about Tinubu’s age and wealth are trash that people put together on the internet and he won’t be the one to give them more talking points.
He said when the campaign commences, they would bring out facts and figures and put them before Nigerians.
Jibrin ended up questioning the professionalism of the interviewer, saying he wants him to respond in a way that will satisfy him (the journalist).
