Clear yourself of drug, money laundering allegation, Tinubu told 

The media office of Obi/Datti presidential council has called on the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to defend himself in the allegation that he was convicted on drug and money laundering related offences in the United states.

The media office in a statement, Wednesday, noted that there is a column in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) nomination form to candidates, seeking to know if they had ever been convicted by any court of law anywhere in the world.

It added that withholding such information breaches the Electoral Act, 2022 (as amended).

“In view of the fresh facts arising from the US court document, Nigerians expect the electoral commission to demand a convincing response from the APC presidential candidate and to act on it accordingly without let or hindrance,” the statement added.

It noted that with successive failure of governance in the country over the years, INEC and indeed, the Nigerian public should show more than passing interest in the backgrounds of all those aspiring to rule this country.
