The 2023 presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has condemned the proposed purchase of a N5 billion presidential yacht.
Sowore described President Bola Tinubu’s administration as a dynasty of thieves, adding that he is trying to deceive Nigerians.
Goldennewsng recalls that Tinubu’s administration had proposed allocation of funds in the 2023 supplementary budget, including ₦5.095 billion for the purchase of a presidential yacht.
This was made public through the detailed supplementary appropriation documents of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies obtained by Nairametrics.
Reacting via his X account, Sowore wondered why the government would buy a yacht for a man who according to him has not been to a stream before.
Speaking further, he claimed that Tinubu is trying to deceive Nigerians in his outburst over his son’s presence at the FEC meeting.
According to him, “The @officialABAT dynasty of thieves! They want to buy a “Presidential Yacht” for N5billion for a man who’s never been to a stream before, they want to renovate a Presidential Lodge in Lagos for N4b for a man who just built a mansion in Lagos that stretches from Bourdillon to Queens Drive in Ikoyi! Reason the joker was grandstanding about his son, Seyi sneaking into FEC meetings just to fool the unwary.”
