I Never Said Shettima Will Replace Tinubu – Awolowo’s Daughter

Ambassador Olatokunbo Awolowo-Dosumu, the daughter of late elder statesman, Obafemi Awolowo, has denied making any comment concerning APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.

Awolowo-Dosumu had been quoted as saying that there is a plot to replace Tinubu with Shettima once their presidential ticket wins the 2023 presidency.

She was said to have made the comment while addressing journalists in Lagos.

“They are plotting against Tinubu; Yorubas should wake up. They are aware of Tinubu’s medical condition.

“All they are planning is, immediately after handing over and swearing-in, they are going to get rid of Tinubu and Sheetima will be your next president if you are not careful.

“Yorubas have to wake up and not allow emotions to lead us,” she was quoted to have said.

Reacting, Awolowo-Dusumu, in a statement, described the news as fake news.

She said, “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. I have no intention to do so. 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.”
