I Sold Land To Finance My Campaign – Tunji Abayomi Reveals



Tunji Abayomi, a constitutional lawyer and Ondo North Senatorial Candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the recently-concluded National Assembly election, on Sunday, denied receiving financial assistance from the state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, for his campaign.

Abayomi was responding to the allegation of some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state that Akeredolu used the money meant for the party to sponsor the AA standard bearers in the election.

He claimed in a statement posted on his verified social media handle that he sold a plot of land in Lekki, Lagos, to finance his campaign.

“The truth is I am far too busy right now with my professional and personal life to engage in all the nonsensical dialogue going on with regard to Ondo State politics.

“I am a successful lawyer and no successful lawyer has anything to fear in victory or defeat. I have many second addresses.

“But I want to correct the false representation that the Governor used what they call APC money to sponsor AA before, during or after election.

“For me oooo I sold a very valuable plot of land in Lekki to finance my Campaign. I also know one House of Representatives AA Candidate sold his House abroad to do the same.

“Maybe if the Governor had given us the so called APC money, I would have won. After all, Senator Borofice beat me by only 10,000 votes from his Local Government Area.

“I am only correcting the false representation. Really, it’s not yet time to talk. I will, when the right time comes,” he wrote.

The constitutional lawyer defected to the AA to pursue his ambition when he could not secure the nomination of the ruling party.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC gave the incumbent senator, Ajayi Boroffice, automatic ticket to run on the platform of the party.

Abayomi ascribed his decision to dump the APC to injustice and fragrant violation of the party’s constitution.
