United States company, Deloitte, has reportedly stated that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, never worked with the firm at any time let alone pay him $1.8million as salaries and bonuses.
Deloitte’s response was contained in a response to a subpoena ordering it to make available Tinubu’s bonus history with the organisation – the comment becoming the latest controversy on Tinubu’s links with drugs trafficking and court cases in the US in the 1990s.
The company’s response quoted in a report by investigative journalist, David Hundeyin, and published in West African Weekly, was signed by Tish Negron, Senior Legal Specialist.
“Bola Ahmed Tinubu has claimed that he made $1.8 million from salaries and bonuses while working a consultancy job at Deloitte USA.“So we subpoenaed Deloitte USA to provide evidence of Tinubu’s employment and staff payment records, and this is what came back,” Hundeyin posted on Monday.
The letter from Deloitte, dated September 20, 2022, partly read, “Dear Mr Kowals, we received a subpoena 16 September 2022, seeking employment records for Bola Tinubu, SSN…. Please be advised that we have no record of Bola Tinubu in our systems, and as such have no employment records for them.”
