Tinubu asked to Apologise to Nigerians and Withdraw From Presidential Race By PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to withdraw from the race.

Speaking on Sunday at a media briefing, Debo Ologunagba, PDP spokesperson, said the forfeiture of funds by Tinubu to the US government shows that he committed infractions which disqualify him from running for president.

Recently, social media platforms were flooded with what appeared to be certified true copies of a settlement order issued by a US court domiciled in the northern district of Illinois regarding forfeiture of funds in some bank accounts to the tune of $460,000 linked to someone named “Bola Tinubu”.

Speaking on the development, Festus Keyamo, spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, had denied the claims that the forfeited funds were linked to allegations of illicit drugs.

Keyamo, however, said the funds forfeited by Tinubu to the US government were tax deductions.

Reacting, the PDP spokesman criticised Tinubu over the said forfeited funds, adding that the APC presidential candidate must withdraw from the presidential race and apologise to Nigerians.  

“What Nigerians expect of Asiwaju Tinubu at this moment is to withdraw from the presidential race and apologise to the nation,” he said.

“The APC must come to terms that it is not in the presidential race and that it has no legitimate candidate at all levels in the 2023 general election as pronounced by the federal high court.
