The Atiku/Okowa Campaign Organisation has insisted that All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu, cannot contest the February 25 presidential poll, owing to his reported conviction for alleged narcotic offences by a United States court.
Consequently, the campaign organisation said it is heading to court to ask for a declaration that Tinubu is not qualified to contest the 2023 polls by virtue of Section 137 (1) (d) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
Spokesperson of the campaign, Kola Ologbondiyan, stated this at a press briefing, yesterday, in Abuja. Ologbondiyan said the Atiku/Okowa campaign also wants the court to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately delist Tinubu as presidential candidate of the APC or of any other political party and expunge his name from all materials relating to next month’s presidential poll.
