The APC said the error has been corrected and signed by Tinubu's ward chairman with the date of registration put as February 6, 2021.
The party said:
''UPDATE: On the concerns raised by the public on the date on the APC registration slip of our National Leader, @AsiwajuTinubu, .. The error has been corrected and signed by his Ward Chairman with the date of registration as 6th February 2021.''

Orgunga said that during the attack, Ahu was seriously injured and was rushed to a public hospital in the area where he later died while receiving treatment.
