APC Presidential Candidate, Tinubu embarrassed in UK.
News One reports that the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was embarrassed in the UK with protests and counter-protest by Nigerians on Monday, December 5, 2022.
This online news platform understands that the APC Presidential candidate Tinubu flew to the United Kingdom some days ago to hold conversations with Nigerians at Chatham House
Tinubu Chatham House visit is coming at a time he has been called out severally for avoiding debates and meetings with the citizens of the country.
On arrival at the venue of the meeting in the UK, Tinubu was greeted by placards for and against him. The protest against him was led by Reno Omokri, a supporter of Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) while others who are probably his supporters stood for the APC candidate. However, it was not a palatable scene to experience especially overseas.
In a tweet on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Omokri said Tinubu could not come out of his car due to the protest and in the end, he had to flee when he couldn’t stand the embarrassment of the mixed protests.
Omokri wrote: “Tinubu will never forget the protest we just pulled off at Chatham House. He was disgraced and could not get out of his car. He had to run away. The #HarassTinubuOutofLondon Protest Against Drug Lord Tinubu at Chatham House was a resounding success! We shook the drug lord Asiwaju.”

Tinubu’s Chatham House performance a disgrace — PDP Campaign
Meanwhile, News One Nigeria reports that the Atiku/Okowa Campaign Presidential Campaign Organization has described the outing of the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu at the Chatham House, London, as disgraceful.
The PDP Campaign said Tinubu’s outing was a pathetic display of vacuity as he failed to perform the simplest of tasks required of a person desiring to lead the world’s largest black nation.
Spokesperson of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this in Abuja, on Monday.
He said, “Nigerians including supporters of the APC Presidential Candidate were thoroughly embarrassed to watch Asiwaju Tinubu who earlier showboated with a scripted speech went blank on the world stage in tragic display of emptiness and inability to personally address questions that were put to him on economy, security and other challenges facing our nation.
“Our Campaign finds it very appalling that a candidate aspiring to be the President of a nation as complex as Nigeria exhibited an embarrassing inability to coordinate his own thought process to the extent that he could not personally think through issues and address them but had to direct questions put to him including those on his health and policies to others to answer.“
Ologbondiyan further said, “Asiwaju Tinubu has confirmed to Nigerians and the world that he has no business contesting the 2023 Presidential election; that he is grossly incompetent, completely unprepared for leadership and intends to transfer the onerous task of leading our nation to proxies and a cabal that did not seek votes from Nigerians.
“Of course, Nigerians cannot afford to have a President who cannot take responsibility to lead but intend to shift burden to others apparently to find scapegoats to blame for his inevitable failures.
“The APC Presidential Candidate ended up becoming a butt of international joke as he could not provide any lead on the critical issues of economy, security, youth development and foreign policies, despite notes passed to him at the event by his handlers.”
