16,000 sign petition demanding Tinubu’s probe
More than 16,000 people have signed a petition challenging the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The petition was created by a former presidential aide, Reno Omokri on Change.org on August 20.
The Herald can report that 16,414 persons have signed the petition as of 4:20 pm on Friday, August 28.
In an explanation attached to the petition, Omokri said that the petition was to call on EFCC to investigate Tinubu for “contravening the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act of 2011, by having bullion vans ferry alleged large sums of money into his house on the eve of the 2019 Presidential election.”
He added, “Dear citizens of Nigeria, let’s take our country back by signing this petition to compel the EFCC to investigate and prosecute Bola Tinubu for contravening the Money Laundering Act, by ferrying bullion vans into his house. Don’t say ‘na today’, or ‘leave matter’.
“We as Nigerians must stop confusing cynicism for wisdom. If we do not fight for our country, who will? George Floyd’s death sparked a revolution in America and we joined. We did not say ‘na today’, or ‘leave matter’.
“You and I can make a difference with this petition. #EFCCMustInvestigateTinubu”
