Tinubu shocked critics expecting flaws at Chatham House – APC



The All Progressives Congress (APC) said on Tuesday its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, disappointed critics with his appearance at Chatham House in London.

The former Lagos State governor appeared at the United Kingdom-based institute on Monday and laid to rest claims on his date of birth and academic qualifications.

He also reeled out his plans for the nation’s economy, education, and defence, among others.

The APC’s Deputy Director of Media and Publicity, Ali Ali, who stated this in a Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, said the party candidate shocked those expecting “glitches” at the institute.

Ali said: “I would say he did very well as expected, maybe to the surprise of his traducers who thought as usual, there would be one or two glitches and they would latch unto that and make a feast out of it.

“But you can see that he spoke well and, of course, naturally, people react differently. Some would applaud and some would naturally condemn. Such is the enigma called Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“A lot of people say his cognitive abilities are on the decline and they make a feast out of it. You see all kinds of memes on social media. But occasionally, it happens to people – senior moments, they call it, I think, in medical terms. It happens to the best of people.”
