Aisha Yesufu: APC Alleges Planned Protest In UK Against Tinubu’s Presidency

Aisha Yesufu and Tinubu

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that popular activist, Aisha Yesufu, is planning to lead a group in the United Kingdom (UK) to stage a protest against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in London.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Friday, the Chairman of the UK chapter of the ruling party, Tunde Doherty, described the move as a misadventure.

Doherty, who is also the APC Committee of Diaspora Chairman, said he was prompted to raise the alarm following recent allegations and statements made by the said group led by Yesufu, a staunch supporter of the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

According to him, the group is planning to stage a protest in London to propagate their claims about the president’s educational credentials.

He said: “It has come to our attention that this group is organising a protest in London to propagate unfounded claims about the educational credentials of President Bola Tinubu.

“We firmly believe our responsibility is to address this matter and underscore the significance of relying on substantiated facts over premature and unsubstantiated allegations.

“President Bola Tinubu, a seasoned and distinguished statesman, has a long and illustrious track record of serving our great nation.

“Throughout his career, he has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the betterment of Nigeria and its people.

“The allegations of forged certificates not only lack concrete evidence but also undermine the spirit of democracy and fair political discourse that we hold dear.”
