While maintaining that the APC diaspora leaders are solidly behind Tinubu, the chairman added that such actions must be based on facts and a genuine pursuit of justice rather than serving as a platform for character assassination and divisive tactics, The Guardian reported.

According to him, the group is planning to stage a protest in London to propagate their claims about the president's educational credentials.

He said:

“The allegations of forged certificates not only lack concrete evidence but also undermine the spirit of democracy and fair political discourse that we hold dear.”
