Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has disassociated himself from a group, which has been propagating a purported 2023 presidential campaign on his behalf.
The APC chieftain, in a statement issued by Tunde Rahman, his media aide, denied having any knowledge of the group, named “Asiwaju Reloaded Ambassadors”, describing it as “faceless.”
According to the former Lagos State governor, he did not endorse any group to campaign on his behalf, adding that the so-called ambassadors had done “unsolicited and unwarranted” promotional activities with his names.
The statement read: “We have seen pictures of face caps, T-shirts, shirts and even leaflets with Bola Tinubu 2023 embossed on them purportedly by a faceless group which christened itself ‘Asiwaju Reloaded Ambassadors’ Nigeria’. Neither the group nor its souvenirs are known to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
“We hereby, through this medium, categorically deny any knowledge of the group and dissociate Asiwaju Tinubu from the group’s unsolicited and unwarranted materials.”
There have been unending speculations indicating that Tinubu will likely launch a presidential bid in 2023 to replace President Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC National Leader has, however, debunked the speculations.
