APC slams Peter Obi, Obidients over planned protest at White House



The All Progressive Congress (APC) in the United States has condemned the planned protest by the Labour Party (LP) at the White House.

As reported by the Punch newspaper, the United States granted the permit for the supporters of LP presidential candidate Peter Obi to stage a protest at the park close to the White House on Monday, April 3.

It was gathered that the United States authorities would allow only 100 protesters at Lafayette Park in Washington D.C. for just four hours.

A statement by the organiser of the protest, Frank Ekechukwu, said:

“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.”
