APC reacts to Tinubu throwing naira at Lagos rally



President Muhammadu Buhari urging Lagosians to vote Bola Tinubu and Babajide Sanwo-Olu

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to news its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu was throwing naira notes at a Lagos rally, noting that it is fake news.

A statement by the Lagos chapter of the APC described the claims that he threw money at voters as a “well-oiled campaign of calumny”.

“Dazed by the phenomenal success of Lagos grand rally held today (February 21), frustrated political opponents have resorted to planting fictional story of Naira-throwing by our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,” Seye Oladejo, Lagos APC publicity secretary said in a statement.

He noted that in a trending post, the orchestrated report purported that Tinubu threw wads of bank-notes to cheering crowd at Oshodi as his motorcade rode passed from Lagos airport en route Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.


“It is nothing but a lie from the pit of hell,” he said.

“It is part of an ongoing well-oiled campaign of calumny in a compromised section of the media to project Asiwaju in bad lights at a time millions of Nigeria are unable to access their hard-earned cash deposited in the banks.

“Tinubu has championed the cause of long-suffering Nigerians that they be allowed to spend old bank notes pending when CBN is able to make adequate bank notes available. So, where will Asiwaju have seen new notes to be throwing on Lagos highways?

“Ordinarily, we would have ignored this infantile lie given its provenance (one of the cheap bloggers hired by political opponents now traumatised by APC’ imminent victory on February 25). But we chose to make this brief statement for the sake of the gullible who might be deceived by such cheap spin.

“A closer look at the accompanying short video (attached to the referenced fake report) will clearly reveal that two APC leaders are the ones actually throwing branded APC fez caps and leaflets to cheering crowd. Certainly not naira notes.


“We urge our supporters and all right-thinking Nigerians to remain calm and vote Asiwaju Tinubu and all APC candidates on Saturday, February 25.”
