Pro-democracy organizations, the Citizens Watch Nigeria (CWN) and the Coalition of Civil Societies and Media Executives for Good Governance in Nigeria (COCMEGG) yesterday described as uncouth, false and malicious allegations that the All Progressives Congress’ national leader, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, is plotting President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment ahead of 2023.

The groups alleged that the statement credited to the chairman of the National Youths Movement, Ishaya Jato, was an orchestrated smear media campaign of calumny and casting of aspersions on Tinubu.

In a statement jointly signed by COCMEGG President Omoba Kenneth Aigbegbele and CWN Secretary  James Okoronkwo, the groups described Tinubu as “a statesman and father of modern day progressivism.”

The statement read in part: “The APC political structures across the country are fully aware of Asiwaju’s contributions to the growth and sustenance of not only democracy in Nigeria but in Africa and knows that Asiwaju is a believer in the supremacy of the party at all times, as an abiding hegemony to good governance and transparency.

“That Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a loyal party leader to the core is not in doubt; a loyal advocate, an avid promoter and supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari and his agenda. APC, like every other party, has its political manifestoes and agenda. And, as such, the party will only thrive when it achieves its vision and mission for an egalitarian society where the rule of law is enshrined.

“Whatever that is good for Nigerians today is Asiwaju’s ultimate goal, not forgetting his recent advocacy and advice to the administration not to increase fuel pump price due to his belief in “we the people” which has remained at the front burner of his political philosophy.”
