Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Friday said presidential aspirant and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu paid for his governorship nomination and expression of interest forms.
Mr Sanwo-Olu stated this at an event, according to his chief press secretary Gboyega Akosile.
Mr Sanwo-Olu’s revelation comes one week after he and Tinubu got their forms.
The forms were picked on their behalf at the party’s secretariat in Abuja by James Faleke, the lawmaker representing Ikeja Constituency at the House of Representatives.
Faleke was accompanied by Samuel Adejare who represents Agege Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives and a former secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal.
On Tinubu’s return from observing the annual Umrah (Lesser Hajj) in Saudi Arabia, Sanwo-Olu presented the forms to him.
“The presentation of these forms signifies the beginning of a historical journey, and the birth of a new dawn in the political landscape of our dear state and country Nigeria,” he said.
