How APC Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Wasted N300Milion on Hotel in 2 Months

Nigeria is generally referred to as a rich country of poorest people, surveys shows that an average Nigerian is living below $1 per day despite the fact tehat the country rakes in billions of dollars on daily basis. Research shows that the wealth of the country is in the hands of few that are less than 5 per cent of the population, while the above 95 per cent are either working for the rich few or eating crumbs from their table, among the less than 5 per cent that are controlling the wealth of the country is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the former Governor of Lagos State who is also one of the national leader of the newly formed All Progressive Congress (APC). Recently when the news that he traveled out of the country on medical basis filtered in little did the people know that the man popularly called Asiwaju by his political associate, is in Chicago in United States of America where he's busy enjoying the wealth he has amassed while in government and after. It was reliably gathered that the former Governor who owns a house in Chicago instead of staying in his house decided to lodge in the upscale hotel of billionaire real estate magnate Donald Trump. The Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, investigation revealed goes for as much as $500 per night sleeping only, note the amount is said to be excluding food, drinks and other services. Information has it that the man popularly called Asiwaju, who stayed in the hotel for more than one month expended a whooping $2 million to the admiration of the hotel billionaire owner who asked the Nigerian politician to come again some other time. This is happening at a time where poverty in the country is fast spreading a situation that has seen so many family scattered when they cannot afford to pay N100,000 house rent, whereas those that present themselves as their leaders can afford to waste such an amount on hotel.
