Nigerians abroad ready to vote Tinubu – APC chieftain

THE Diaspora Director of the All Progressives Congress Campaign Council, Ade Omole, expressed confidence in the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, noting that a significant percentage of the over 1.6 million Nigerians living abroad will be returning to vote on Saturday.

Omole today revealed this during a press conference at the APC’s national headquarters in Abuja.

The PCC director recently made headlines when he refused to take responsibility for a viral video of branded wine that was circulating on social media.

In the 57 seconds clip, a male voice touted to be a member of Tinubu’s camp in the Diaspora, could be heard saying the exotic bottles of wine branded with the emblem of ‘APC Committee of Diaspora Chairmen’ and packaged in several customised cartons are ready for shipment to Abuja.

The show of opulence at a time many Nigerians are struggling with the lingering fuel crisis and naira scarcity resulted in a backlash, leading to a barrage of verbal attacks from many social media users.

The Diaspora director had expressed outrage over the claim, saying his directorate knows nothing about the video.

A different Omole, however, told journalists in Abuja today that his principal is head and shoulder above other candidates, his chances are bright from all the indices he has seen.
