Alleged drug dealing: Tinubu told to withdraw from 2023 presidential election
The Peter Obi Support Network, POSN, has asked the All Progressive Congress, APC, presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential election, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to withdraw from the race due to alleged drug-related offenses in the United States of America and a perjury case filed against him at an Abuja High Court.
The group issued the statement in Lagos, signed by the group’s Deputy Director of Communications, Emmanuel Adesuji.
According to the statement, Tinubu’s alleged drug dealing was the result of months of collaboration between a legal practitioner, Mike Enahoro-Ebah, and the Chicago law firm, Leahy, Eisenberg & Fraenkel Ltd.

The group also stated that there were established discrepancies in some of the information provided to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, by the APC’s presidential candidate in his Form EC9.
According to POSN, the basis for Enahoro-Ebah’s legal action was different dates of birth, failure to provide evidence of attendance at a school that appears on his academic record, failure to disclose secondary citizenship, alleged forgery of a university degree certificate, a potential instance of identity theft, and others.
“Therefore, we are calling on the APC candidate to honourably withdraw from the election, as there is damning evidence to show his ineligibility to contest the election. He should not wait for any candidate or party to approach the court, because if that happens, it is most likely that the court will order INEC to disqualify him, and that will not be too good. So, he should just step down and go home with his honours,” the group submitted.
