According to reports reaching Oyogist.com, Popular politician, Olabode George accused former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu for allegedly generating revenue in Lagos state using a private firm called AlphaBeta and earns around N7.5bn ($19 million) monthly, as he called on the Lagos State government to block all forms of revenue leakages.
Bode Goerge spoke during an interview with Arise News, he said:
“There are so many leakages in the Lagos State Government purse. Take this AlphaBeta; who owns this AlphaBeta? What is the essence of the AlphaBeta? Where else in the world would you have an Inland Revenue Service, who have their own staff who are supposed to go out and collect the fees, but you have an independent company to be supposedly collecting the internally generated revenue from our state?
“It grosses around N50bn (about $130m) a month and you know how much that company (AlphaBeta) is paid 15% of it, that’s N7.5bn in thirty days going to the company, that is a leakage, that is sacrilegious,” said Mr George.
Bode George further criticised Tinubu and his children for controlling all top state positions and businesses.
“His son Seyi controls the whole signage for Lagos. Everybody who wants to put up an advert on any signboard you go to his company alone, is that justifiable, does that make any sense and you think people will not know.
“The first shopping mall, which was a pride to all of us in Lagos was constructed by Brigadier Mobolaji Johnson during his tenure, they demolished it, you know what is there now, Seyi Tinubu is keeping his private personal horses there, where is that pride, where has our heritage gone,” he said.
