APC to stage counter protest in the US


THE United States chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is set to embark on a solidarity march in Washington D.C. to counter a protest by supporters of the Labour Party (LP).

The chairman of the group, Tai Balofin, said the march would take place on April 3 at the Lafayette Park, opposite the White House.

This follows a report that some Nigerians resident in the US had reportedly gotten a permit to protest against the election victory of the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, on April 3.

Balofin urged Nigerians not to be worried by the actions of supporters of the LP presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the United States.

“We also wish to state that this protest was sponsored by Peter Obi, who lost the election in Nigeria,” the statement read.

It added, “We believe that the Nigerian presidential election was free and fair, and Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu won the election. The majority of Nigerian voters gave him their mandate, and no propaganda, manipulation or tissue of lies can stop his inauguration.

“We have mobilized true Nigerians to come out in support of their mandate, and we believe that the protesters will not succeed in their mission to disrupt the peace and stability of Nigeria.”
