Daughter of Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Ambassador Olatokunbo Awolowo-Dusumu, has denied making comments on the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima.
A section of the media had reported that Awolowo-Dusumu alleged plans to “get rid of Tinubu” for Shettima to become president after the party might have won the 2023 presidential election.
But Awolowo-Dusumu described the sad report as a wicked lie by some jobless folks.
“I am not in partisan politics and I have not been in partisan politics for decades. I have neither endorsed nor condemned any candidate or party,” she said.
“I refuse to be dragged into a matter I know nothing about. I advise whoever is behind this wicked lie to make better use of their time for the progress and development of our country, Nigeria,” she added.
Awolowo-Dusumu is the executive director of the Obafemi Awolowo Foundation.
