APC to hold solidarity march in US to counter protest by ‘Obi supporters’


The All Progressives Congress (APC) chapter in United States
says it has scheduled a solidarity march in Washington D.C. in support of Bola
Tinubu, the declared winner of Nigeria’s presidential election.


The group, in a statement signed by Tai Balofin, its
chairman, said the march will take place on April 3 at the Lafayette Park –
Southwest Quadrant – opposite the White House, to counter a protest by
supporters of the Labour Party (LP).


On March 31, TheCable reported that some Nigerians in the US
have reportedly secured a permit to protest on April 3 against the election
victory of the president-elect, Bola Tinubu.


However, Balofin, in his statement said a group of Nigerians
loyal to Peter Obi, LP candidate staged a demonstration opposite the White
House on March 30.


He said the US government was not involved or in support of
the protest, as anybody can get approval for a peaceful protest.


He also asked Nigerians not to be perturbed by the actions
of the protesters.


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


 “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”.
