The presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has failed to answer interview questions at Chatham house in the United Kingdom (UK).
Brand Spur Nigeria recalls that Tinubu flew to UK few days ago with his team to hold conversations with Nigerians in the United Kingdom. However, several controversies have surrounded his trip.
This digital news platform reports that before Tinubu arrived the venue, there were protests and counter protests against and for him. The protest against him was led by PDP’s Reno Omokri while supporters of the APC candidate stood their ground for him.
The main event which is the conversation had brought about another controversy due to the unwillingness of Tinubu to answer questions thrown to him by the interviewee.
In a video shared on social media, Tinubu was seen calling on Governor El-Rufai, Ben Ayade and Dele Alake to answer questions on his behalf despite the fact that he is physically present.

Chatham house show of shame. You want to be the president but avoiding answering questions, instead you are re-directing the answers to El-Rufai, Alake and co. Nigerians want to be governed by a person not a robot who cannot exercise independent thought in answering questions

He can speak at Chatham House but he can’t speak at the media houses in the country?
This is Buhari’s template. Nigerians, over to you

At the end of the town hall on @ARISEtv, the host said that Tinubu was invited and "he declined ." How in God's name can Nigeria expect Tinubu to lead the nation when he refuses to participate in a town hall? If his current supporters have any self-respect, then they'll dump him. pic.twitter.com/VLnbnlgd1y
