The person who made a significant contribution to ending the PDP’s 16-year rule with the aid of other political parties at the time.

Both his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), fear and adore him.

Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Biography

Chief “Asiwaju” Bola Ahmed Tinubu was born on March 29, 1952, and he entered the Nigerian political scene in 1992. He was Nigeria’s 12th governor of Lagos State from May 29, 1999, until May 29, 2007, when Babatunde Raji Fashola took over (SAN). In 1993, he was elected to the position of senator for the Lagos West seat in Lagos State, beginning his career in politics. He is not only a politician, but also a certified public accountant. The most influential politician in the southwest of Nigeria and the second-richest politician overall is Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He attended a children’s home school in Ibadan, southwest Nigeria, after beginning at St. John’s elementary school in Aroloya, Lagos. He completed his secondary school overseas, attending Chicago, Illinois’s Richard J. Daley College.

Bola Tinubu’s Career

Tinubu was the top graduate in his class. He qualified for many job offers from significant accounting firms in the United States because he graduated with the highest grade in his class. Arthur Andersen, Ernst & Whinney, Peat Marwick & Mitchell, Deloitte, IBM, Arthur Young, Deloitte, Haskins & Sells, and others were a few of the companies. Tinubu has the choice of selecting only one business. He would have chosen the position with the highest salary, but his professor recommended him to pick one where he would learn and be useful to his nation. He did so since Nigeria is an oil-producing nation and Deloitte and Touche’s clients are in the oil and gas industry.

Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Political Career

Let’s go back to the time when he began to develop influence within the Nigerian government. Ahmed Tinubu joined the SDP (Social Democratic Party) in 1992.He joined the people’s front fraction due to his loyalty to and love of politics. The faction’s head was Shehu Musa Yar’Adua. After the November 17 coup d’état in Nigeria in 1993, which was conducted by Sani Abacha, the defense minister, he left the country. In an interview, Tinubu described his voyage into exile, saying, “I escaped into the Benin Republic on a motorcycle while disguised with a large turban and babanriga. The clothing was a gift from an old Hausa friend. In truth, Kudirat Abiola was unaware that I was the one when I showed up to her. I briefed her and provided her some facts. At 1 a.m in the morning, I departed. I continued to travel to Badagry while I was in the Benin Republic to transport people and to organize and coordinate the fight with those who were already there. We organized a team to transport NADECO employees across. It was an extremely difficult moment. I can’t forget about the young men that participated in the struggle, like Segun Maiyegun. I would sneak back after meetings I had with them in Benin. After returning from exile in 1998, he quickly rose to fame and was elected governor of Lagos state in May 1999. He is renowned around the world for founding 37 LGAs in the state. He had eight successful years in office as governor!

What else? He made multiple attempts to ensure the APC candidates won the 2015 elections because of his animosity for the PDP. The northerners greatly admire him as a result of this.

According to current reports, Bola Ahmed Tinubu said that President Muhammadu Buhari would not have been the leader of the Federal Republic of Nigeria without his assistance. Bola Tinubu is the godfather of many well-known politicians in Lagos state and in the southwest.

Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Net worth

He is regarded as the second-richest politician in Nigeria and is thought to be worth at least $4 billion. He is well known for being extremely wealthy according to a remark he made during a political campaign that he was wealthier than the state of Osun (at the time). Many Nigerians were led to assume that he did, in fact, have influence over important financial resources in the nation as a result of his statement.

He is thought to control the majority of the political influence in the majority of Western states in Nigeria due to the power he once held during his two terms as governor of Lagos State. His holdings include the Oriental Hotel, a cutting-edge hotel with a prime location on Victoria Island in Lagos State. Other properties and assets that he owns are dispersed throughout the nation and abroad, including TVC Television and Radio, Lekki Concession Company, Ikeja Shopping Mall, Renaissance Hotel, The Nation Newspapers, Radio Continental, and Apapa Amusement Park. He also has assets in Oando PLC, one of the largest locally owned oil-producing companies in Nigeria.
