Seyi Tinubu, son of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the now deleted post on Instagram, shared pictures that implicated him in monetary inducement on Wednesday.
When zoomed, the now deleted picture showed “Money Inducements” on the whiteboard bearing items on the agenda at Tuesday’s strategy meeting Seyi attended at a youth campaign office in Abuja.
Seyi tagged the post “My Tuesday #BAT #MyDayInPic #Abuja #YouthCampaignOffice”. His post accumulated 3,258 likes and 172 comments before he deleted it.
Bola, a former Governor of Lagos State, is the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the upcoming 2023 presidential election. He has had a string of criminal allegations and charges levelled against him.
Among the items on the agenda board was “The New Electoral Act“, a recent improvement on the existing Nigerian electoral laws aimed at curbing malpractices. The two items on the agenda are easy to connect, as monetary inducement is one of the electoral crimes Nigerians expect the new act to curb.
