Oyetola denies buying London mansion in Tinubu – Nigeria – The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News


Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has finally broken his silence over his alleged purchase of a controversial property raised by Pandora Papers.

The governor has denied purchasing the London mansion, where All Progressives Congress, APC national leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu received prominent politicians and personalities during his recent stay in the UK.

Oyetola, in a statement released yesterday by his chief press secretary, Ismail Omipidan, also denied ties to Kola Aluko, the seller of the property, who is an associate of a former Minister of Oil Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke , indicted in the United States and Nigeria for multi-million dollar violation and money laundering allegedly in collusion with Diezani.

The statement reads: “We have seen reports on some online media platforms regarding the PANDORA PAPERS allegations. It is therefore a question of setting the record straight.

“Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, Governor of Osun State, resigned as a director of Aranda Overseas Corporation in 2011 when he took up his political office. He also sold his stake in the same company.

From 2011 to date, he has not had any association, relations or commercial transactions with said company, as he is neither director nor shareholder of said company.

“He therefore could not have acquired the said property in 2017, either directly or through the said company, as alleged.

“In fact, Oyetola has no relationship or connection with the alleged owner of the property, Mr. Kolawole Aluko, let alone any transaction or business transaction with him.

“He also fully complied with the law of the land when he left Global Investments Offshore Limited, as Director in 2011, upon his appointment as Chief of Staff.

“While we appreciate family members, friends, associates and supporters for their concern about development, we assure them that there is nothing to fear. Mr. Oyetola has always demonstrated that he is a man who knows and respects the law in his corporate and political activities.The God who has brought us here will never forsake us.
