Over 16,000 Nigerians have signed a petition on Change.org calling for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC to investigate the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC and Former Lagos Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

POLITICS NIGERIA learned that the petition was launched by a Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri. A vocal critic of the Muhammadu Buhari Administration, Omokri titled the petition “Calling on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to investigate Bola Tinubu for contravening the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act of 2011, by having bullion vans ferry alleged large sums of money into his house on the eve of the 2019 Presidential election”.

The Petition which had about 16,200 signatures as at Friday morning has gone viral. Below is an accompanying statement made by Omokri on the petition’s page; “Dear citizens of Nigeria, let’s take our country back by signing this petition to compel the EFCC to investigate and prosecute Bola Tinubu for contravening the Money Laundering Act, by ferrying bullion vans into his house. Don’t say ‘na today’, or ‘leave matter’.

“We as Nigerians must stop confusing cynicism for wisdom. If we do not fight for our country, who will? George Floyd’s death sparked a revolution in America and we joined. We did not say ‘na today’, or ‘leave matter’. You and I can make a difference with this petition. #EFCCMustInvestigateTinubu.”

It will be recalled that Tinubu has since responded to an inquiry about the Bullion vans pictures entering his Bourdillon home last year. He told a reporter that he was free to give anyone money since he was not holding any government position.

  1. This is interesting
    ! It will set a land slide precedent and as a paradigm shift from this endemic stagnation of a moribund country to a new thinking.
    Thank Reno! It is just the beginning. Men would from here know they are not invincible after all. little by little we shall catch them all!!!!!!! So those hiding under the law and political position or immunity to rape and perpetrate all manners of atrocities, watch out Nigerians are coming. We will get you no matter where you run to or hide. This same law you have made and repudiated in your actions may also morph to chain you.
    Are you a killer, Murderer, assassin, Kidnapper, Governor, President? He he! First you are a Nigerian under the law. It will catch you!! No Revolution comes Ringing bell, but its reasons come in screaming hues. You have come to the Rubicon, to that moment when Nigerians may not look at tongue, tribe, faith or title to administer justice.

    Thank you Reno Omokri!
