President Mohammadu Buhari departed Nigeria for the United Kingdom on the 3rd of May for the coronation of the British Monarch on the 6th of May.
In a statement, Femi Adesina, the media aide to the president, said, “The president will join other world leaders invited to attend the coronation of Charles III and his wife, as His Majesty The King and Her Royal Majesty The Queen Consort of the United Kingdom respectively”. President Muhamadu Buhari was billed to arrive in Abuja this week but has extended his stay in the UK to enable him to see his Dentist, Femi Adesina said.
Our reliable Source who is a top Nigerian Government official in the UK who pleaded anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the issue, said, “Mr Buhari is lobbying with the UK government to legalize the sham elections and accept Tinubu after he has generated negative reactions in recent times by western media”.
It will be recalled that Bloomberg earlier published an article that a firm belonging to Seyi Tinubu, the son of Bola Tinubu, bought an $11 million London Mansion in the U.K. Similarly, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and some of his associates have also been linked to 20 properties in the United Kingdom when he was serving as Lagos State Governor. According to an investigation published by the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project OCCRP, a global network of investigative journalists with staff across six continents, 17 of these properties were bought by Oladipo Eludeyin, Tinubu’s associate and a director of Aranda Overseas Corp., between 2004 and 2007.
