APC Opens Up On Why Tinubu Told El-Rufai, Others To Answer Questions For Him At Chatham House
The All Progressives Congress, APC, has explained why its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, decided to delegate other persons to answer questions posed to him while speaking at the Chatham House, London, on Monday.
Tinubu spoke at the Chatham House on Monday where he laid out his action plan for Nigeria and addressed questions on the controversy concerning his age and refusal to attend presidential debates.
The biggest highlight of Tinubu’s time at Chatham House was the fact that he asked some persons on his team, including Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the House of Representatives, and Nasir el-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna, to answer questions on his behalf.
Tinubu’s action did not go down well with many Nigerians on Social Media as they attacked him for refusing to answer all the questions himself.
However, reacting through Dele Alake, director of strategic communication of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, the ruling party explained the reason for the action.
Speaking in an interview with Channels Television, Mr. Alake said delegating questions to team members is “one of the innovations” of Tinubu.
