Veteran singer and media personality, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa aka Charly Boy has called out president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu after he was declared winner of Saturday’s general election.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday, March 1, declared the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate as the winner of the February 25th presidential election.
Taking to his verified Twitter page on Thursday, Charly Boy expressed concern about how Nigeria is currently being viewed abroad after Tinubu’s emergence as President Muhammadu Buhari‘s successor.
Charly Boy who is a staunch supporter of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, said Tinubu should be allowed to enjoy INEC’s certificate of return for just a while.
He wrote: “Lord have mercy. The only certificate BAT (Bola Ahmed Tinubu) has ever had, please let him enjoy it for some time.”
Charly Boy further made demeaning remarks about the APC presidential candidate, talking about his drug dealing allegation and ‘conviction’ while he was living in the United States.
“My fellow Nigerians, we already have a problem with our image abroad, to add an alleged drug baron as our president to the mix is suicidal to our global image. Nigerians, na so we go leave am? This na very bad market for us oooo. To dey get visa go come dey hard small,” the entertainer tweeted.
Recall that the APC candidate was alleged to have falsified his age and educational records after he failed to provide INEC with the original credentials regarding his qualifications.
Tinubu’s academic qualifications, including his birth records, have also been said to have been falsified.
