The United States Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that it will work hard to defend the mandate of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
The disclosure was made by APC United States National Youth Leader, Oyakhilome Bello in a statement on Saturday.
According to Bello, the chapter has secured a permit to hold a peaceful protest on April 3 at Lafayette Park, South West Quadrant, Washington DC.
He explained that the demonstration is aimed at countering the scheduled protest of those who are opposing Tinubu's emergence as the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
“It is to demonstrate against anti-democratic forces whose desire is to overturn Nigeria’s just-concluded presidential election and cause unrest in the country", he said.
Bello shared that the protest is also to show solidarity for a mandate that Nigerians freely gave to Tinubu and to let the world know that he is indeed the winner as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“We will defend the voice of the majority of the Nigerian electorate because we have come too far to let some few selected people destroy what we have built over decades.
“The APC USA Chapter, under the leadership of Prof. Adesegun Labinjo, its National Chairman, and Maryland Branch Chairman, Mr Adeleke Lamoriyu, had secured a permit for the protest to show solidarity for the peoples’ mandate freely given to Tinubu on Feb. 25 at the poll.
“We will galvanise and work hard to defend the voice of the majority of the Nigerian electorate because we have come too far to let some few selected people destroy what we have built over decades.
“I hereby call on all patriots, lovers and defenders of democracy far and near to join us as we show our support for the people’s mandate", he added.
