Presidential Election: Advocacy group berates US govt's stance on poll
The Centre for Reform and Public Advocacy has criticised the government of the United States for congratulating the president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
According to the group, the US government should have waited for the courts to decide before sending its congratulatory message to the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate.
In a statement signed by its spokesman, Ifeanyi Okechukwu, and sent to Legit.ng, the group said:
“The US is seeking to convert Tinubu to its stooge. The US has more than enough dirt on him, which could be used in blackmailing him. Nigeria’s sovereignty has been handed over to a foreign power with Tinubu as its proxy - the new form of neo-colonialism."
