The All Progressives Congress (APC) youth leader in the United States, Mr Oyakhilome Bello, have said that the call by some individuals to protest the emergence of Sen.Bola Tinubu as President-elect on April 3 in the U.S has no merit.
Bello who is also the Deputy Director North America Youth Wing Campaign Council said this in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
He described as baseless the protest against Tinubu’s emergence by some opposition groups at a park in front of the White House on Thursday, saying such protest would produce no result.
He said the protest had no weight because the Feb. 25, presidential election that produced Tinubu as the president-elect was free, fair and credible, adding that the former two-term Lagos State governor won the election squarely.
He advised Nigerians not to be worried about the development but to remain calm and peaceful as the APC U.S would mobilise genuine Nigerians to counter the protest and work to protect Tinubu’s mandate.
Bello said the chapter would work to ensure that those protesting against Tinubu’s emergence as president-elect would not succeed in their mission to disrupt Nigeria’s peace and stability.
He called on all patriotic Nigerians to join hands to work for the country’s unity and peace, and to support Tinubu and Vice-president elect, Sen. Kashim Shettima to enthrone a better Nigeria for all.
He added that there was no mandate stolen as alleged by opposition parties, because the Nigerian electorate freely gave their mandate to Tinubu at the poll.
“The election is therefore, a true reflection of the voice of the majority, even though there were some identified flaws during the election that can always be improved on.
“The majority of Nigerian voters gave Tinubu their mandate, and no manipulation, propaganda or tissue of lies can stop his inauguration on May 29,” Bello said.
