You Can’t Expect Bola Tinubu To Attend All Events – APC

The Coordinator of the Tinubu/Shettima Support Group for the North-East, Tijani Tumsah has stated that Nigerians cannot expect the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, to attend all events.

Reacting to backlash from some Nigerians over Tinubu’s absence during the signing of the 2023 election peace pact where he was represented by his running mate, Kashim Shettima, Tumsah said only the former Lagos State governor has the autonomy to decide which events he will attend.
