An alleged N100 million bribe given by the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, is at the centre of the crisis that is tearing apart Lagos4Lagos Movement.

The Movement’s leader, Dr Olajide Adediran (Jandor), had reportedly sacked the group’s state chairman, Prince Sunday Ajayi, on account of the alleged bribery.

The crisis within the splinter group in the APC, which recently defected to the People Democratic Party (PDP), broke out on Tuesday when Adediran sacked
Ajayi.

Adediran, popularly called “Jandor”, is eying the governorship ticket of the Lagos PDP in the 2023 elections.

He accused Ajayi of serial improprieties.

But Ajayi, in a statement on Wednesday, denied all allegations against him.

He denied ever collecting N100 million from Tinubu.

According to him, his withdrawal from the Lagos4Lagos Movement was due to Adediran’s questionable character and draconian lifestyle.

He said: “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 disclosed 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.
