The All Progressives Congress (APC) UK Chapter has voiced its opposition to a planned protest against President Bola Tinubu in London, stating that it is a misguided endeavor.
Mr. Tunde Doherty, Chairman of the UK chapter of the ruling party, made this known in a statement released on Friday in Lagos.
Doherty, who also serves as the APC Committee of Diaspora Chairmen, felt compelled to respond to recent allegations and statements made by a group led by Aisha Yesufu, an activist and supporter of the Labour Party.
The group intends to stage a protest in London to spread false claims about the president’s educational qualifications.
“We have become aware that this group is organizing a protest in London to spread baseless claims about President Bola Tinubu’s educational qualifications,” Doherty said.
“We firmly believe that it is our responsibility to address this matter and emphasize the importance of relying on verified facts rather than premature and unsupported allegations.
“President Bola Tinubu, a seasoned and distinguished statesman, has a long and impressive history of serving our great nation.
“Throughout his career, he has shown unwavering dedication to the improvement of Nigeria and its people.
“The allegations of forged certificates not only lack solid evidence but also undermine the principles of democracy and fair political discussions that we hold dear,” Doherty added.
