The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has opened up on insinuations that he plans to take over from Muhammadu Buhari as president in 2023.
The group, called “Asiwaju Reloaded Ambassadors Nigeria”, made face caps, T-shirts, and leaflets, with the message “Tinubu 2023” and his pictures stamped on them.
Tinubu has, however, in a series of tweets signed by his media office and posted on his official Twitter handle, denied the group and its materials in circulation.
“We have seen pictures of face caps, T shirts, shirts and even leaflets with Bola Tinubu 2023 embossed on them purportedly by a faceless group which christened itself ‘Asiwaju Reloaded Ambassadors’ Nigeria’. Neither the group nor its souvenirs are known to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
“We hereby, through this medium, categorically deny any knowledge of the group and dissociates Asiwaju Tinubu from the group’s unsolicited and unwarranted materials,” he tweeted.
