Exclusive: Why Angered Osinbajo Retrieved Funds From Kwara Delegates


The fresh fact has revealed the reason Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo recovered the money he paid Kwara delegates at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Convention, held at Eagles Square, Abuja.

Recalled that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo was one of the party's leading presidential aspirants in an election that saw the former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu clinched the party's ticket while the Vice President was in far third position.

After the collation and counting of ballots, the result suggested that Kwara was the only state that delivered a 100 percent vote to the winner (Asiwaju Bola Tinubu).

It was gathered that Osinbajo was furious for not at least getting a vote from Kwara as he ordered his ally, Engr. Tobi who was accompanied by fully armed security men to collect his money back from the Kwara delegates.
