Prof. Tai Balofin, Chairman of the United States chapter of APC, said Nigerians protesting the emergence of Sen. Bola Tinubu as President-elect, at a park in front of the White House, will not succeed in their mission to disrupt the peace and stability of Nigeria.
Balofin in a statement on Thursday confirmed that the U.S. chapter had mobilized true Nigerians to come out in support of Tinubu’s mandate freely given by the electorate at the February 25 polls.
He urged patriotic Nigerians not to be perturbed by the actions of losers.
“We (APC U.S.) wish to inform the public that a group of the Nigerian 2023 presidential election losers are currently protesting at the park in front of the White House.
“It is important to note that the US government is not involved or in support of the protest, as anybody can get approval for a peaceful protest,” Balofin said.
“It is our belief that the Nigerian presidential election was free and fair, and Asiwaju 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 want to assure Nigerians that Nigeria will not secede, and it will remain united, we must work together to salvage it,” he said.
Balofin urged Nigerians to remain calm and peaceful, saying that justice would prevail and the mandate the people gave Tinubu at the poll would be respected.
