The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress , Bola Tinubu , has denied the claim of his links with Act Technologies Limited , said to be a contractor to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Tinubu said contrary to reports , he had no interest in the firm and had never been involved in the supply of card readers, voter registration , accreditation frameworks or any other materials or services to INEC .
In a statement on Friday by his media aide , Tunde Rahman , Tinubu said it was illogical to claim that then President Goodluck Jonathan awarded such a contract to him in 2014 /2015 .
He said , “ Let us be clear in this matter; if any political party was in control of INEC ’ s procurement practices in 2014 /2015 , it would have been the one in control of the Federal Government at that time .
“ Asiwaju never asked for, nor did he receive , anything or any contract from Jonathan’ government.
“ As incompetent as his administration was , even President Jonathan would not have sat idly by while important electoral contracts were being handed over to his most implacable political foe .
“ As often happens with fiction concocted by amateurs, the application of a little common sense causes the entire story to fall apart , ” Tinubu ’ s media aide said .
He blamed the opposition Peoples Democratic Party for the report linking him with Act Technologies Limited.
