Joe, Pick The Phone, Call Tinubu Now – APC Campaign Council Tells US, President

Bola Tunibu

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council (APC PCC) has asked the United States President, Joe Biden, to “pick up the phone and add his voice” in congratulating the president-elect, Bola Tinubu.

The APC Council Director of New Media, Femi Fani-Kayode, stated this on his Twitter handle, adding that Nigeria deserved no less from the US government, as two countries of long, historic relationship.

The election widely believed to be poorly conducted and rigged in favour of the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) has left a loophole in international politics, as the President-Elect Bola Tunibu, felt disrespected as world leaders including the United States President are yet put a call across to him since he was declared the winner of Nigeria’s February 25 presidential election.

In contrast to Buhari’s election victory in April 2015, Tinubu is yet to receive an official congratulation from world leaders including the US President weeks after being declared a winner.
On April 1, 2015, the then-French President, François Hollande, the then-United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and the then-US President, Barack Obama were among the dignitaries who extended their congrats to Buhari.

Although for Tinubu, the US Mission in Nigeria has congratulated him. Meanwhile, the US President has not either called or issued a personal statement congratulating Nigeria’s president-elect.

In his reaction, Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation said, “Whether @JoeBiden calls to congratulate him or not @officialABAT is the President-elect of the biggest, richest, most populous, most advanced & most enlightened nation in Africa & the Western world’s biggest trading partner on the continent.

They need us as much as we need them.
“Yes, the American State Department and the American Ambassador to Nigeria both congratulated Asiwaju. For this, we are eternally grateful & it reflects a measure of respect.

However, it’s time for Joe to pick up the phone & add his voice. We are a big nation: we deserve no less.”
