Tinubu: I’ve Not Touched a Penny Since Handover

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu says he has not touched a penny since he took over power from Muhammadu Buhari.

This is even as the president announced that he in inherited both liabilities and assets from his predecessor.

Addressing governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Council Chambers, President Tinubu tasked them on people-friendly policies and programmes.

“This is about the Nigerian project, not about Bola Tinubu. I don’t have a dealership in petroleum products and I don’t intend to have one,” Tinubu said.

“The situation that we have seen is one, I inherited, and it is fundamental, I inherited assets and liabilities of my predecessor.

“No budget, no penny that has been removed. This is the first time you are entering the Council Chamber, this is the first time I’m entering it too. But we have to push on. We have to make decisions that affect all of us.

“You as progressive thinkers, under the umbrella of our, have a very serious role to play in educating the people, and making sure that we manage ourselves,” he added.

On the issue of leadership of the National Assembly, Tinubu urged them to set up a committee to meet with the Senate President.
