A spokesman for the Atiku/PDP presidential campaign, Daniel Bwala on Thursday, November 10 said Bola Ahmed Tinubu may be disqualified from contesting the 2023 presidential elections over his connection to a drug trafficking case in the United States of America.
Bwala who is a lawyer made the comment during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
“I’m afraid that the conclusion of this case is that, from the eyes of the law. Bola may be disqualified from contesting if the matter goes to court. Narcotics and money laundering, whether in Nigeria or the United States, is a criminal offence.
“For the Nigerian people, the source of the money is important, but there is still a cloud around drug related offences and drug related activity with somebody who wants to be the number one citizen of the country.
“Recently, there was a massive busting of cocaine in Nigeria. This idea of drugs and narcotics is a terrible case all over the world.
“And if someone has that questionable character and is elected as a president, what it means is that it will embolden people who are into those activities. That’s why the person has to come out clean.”
Meanwhile, the South South Agenda for Tinubu/Shettima has declared that Tinubu will win the presidential election in the South South region. Edujandon.com reports that the leader of the group, Bitrus Nta Oliver, said no geopolitical zone would want to be in the opposition in 2023, hence, the zone has resolved that the votes of the people of the south-south zone will be for Tinubu.
