Tinubu’s conduct in Chatham House disgraceful -Atiku support group
The Atiku Support Organisation has described as a colossal disgrace the conduct of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in Chatham House, London.
ASO said watching Tinubu delegate questions directed at him to his party men at the conference room was proof that he has no atom of capacity to govern a country as Nigeria.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the former Lagos governor was in Chatham House on Monday to speak to Nigerians in the Diaspora on why he should be elected in 2023.
As he was asked by the moderator to respond to some questions asked, Tinubu said he would assign some members of his entourage to do so.
He assigned Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State to speak on how his (Tinubu-led) government would address insecurity and asked the Director of Strategic Communication of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Aleke, to respond to the question on oil theft.

Nigerian University Lecturers, ASUU Demands Eight-Month Withheld Salaries
Nigerian university lecturers, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has voiced out its opposition to the proposed introduction of education loans, claiming that these loans have been a colossal failure in Nigeria and other countries where they were implemented.
The union expressed concern that those who support the policy are so eager to impose it on Nigerians when they have done more to drive Nigerians into poverty through blatant incompetence in managing the country’s economic fortunes.
The lecturers also made an appeal to well-meaning Nigerians to pressure the government into releasing the members’ withheld salaries, adding that they viewed the pro-rata payment of salaries to some of its members in October as casualisation.
The university lecturers made this known in a statement signed by its President Emmanuel Osodeke at the union National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, which was held at the University of Calabar.
