Man Vows To Close His Bank Account After Tony Elumelu Had Dinner Meeting With Bola Tinubu


A Nigerian Twitter user has taken to the microblogging platform to disclose that he would stop transactions with a bank after its chairman, Tony Elumelu hosted Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The business magnate and economist had hosted the politician at his home after he emerged as the President-elect.

On arriving at Elumelu’s residence, Tinubu hugged the philanthropist and shook his hand.

“Last man standing. He is still standing,” Elumelu said aloud, referring to the former senator and two-term governor of Lagos State.

The chairman of UBA group said in an Instagram post on Wednesday that he was honoured to receive Tinubu at his home, adding that they discussed ways in which the incoming administration would empower young people in the country.

He said, “Last night, I was honoured to receive the Nigerian President-elect ???????? @officialasiwajubat at my home. We discussed ways in which the incoming administration must empower and support our immensely talented Nigerian youth. We have so much young potential to unleash!”




This had struck one or two nerves as one Nigerian identified as @SenatorEnrii took to his Twitter page to reveal that he has uninstalled his bank app and intends to visit his bank and close his account.

Excerpt from his post read:

“I just deleted my UBA app. Tomorrow, I will close my UBA account. I won’t transfer to or receive money from UBA account”
