“We in the diaspora are demonstrating to call the attention of the US government and Biden administration to not recognise the projected winner.”

Reacting to the development, the chairman of the United States chapter of APC, Prof. Tai Balofin, said:

“We 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.
“It is our belief 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."
