The presidency has admitted that President Bola Tinubu’s son, Seyi Tinubu, joined the Board of Directors of CDK in 2018.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar had in a statement on Sunday accused the President of conflict of interest in the award of the Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway to Hitech Construction Company, which he claimed is owned by Chagoury family, because the President’s son sits on the board of CDK, a tiles manufacturing company, based in Sagamu, Ogun State.

Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga in a statement issued Monday wondered how Seyi’s membership of the board of CDK conflicts with Hitech Construction Company’s work on Lagos-Calabar Coastal superhighway.

He said: “It is important to state clearly that Seyi Tinubu is a 38 year-old adult who has a right to do business and pursue his business interests in Nigeria and anywhere in the world within the limits of the law.

“The fact that his father is now the President of Nigeria does not disqualify Seyi from pursuing legitimate business interests.

“For the records, Seyi joined the Board of Directors of CDK in 2018, more than six years ago. He is representing the interest of an investor company, in which he has interest. He is not a board member because his father is a friend of the Chagourys.

“Information about owners and shareholders of CDK is a matter of public record that can be openly accessed from the website of the Corporate Affairs Commission and CDK’s.

“Atiku and his proxy did not need a little-known journal to recycle open-source information to make a fallacious argument.

“The Chairman of CDK and the highest shareholder of the company is respected General TY Danjuma (rtd). The Chagourys are minority shareholders in the company, and only one member of the clan is on its five-man board.”
