“It is to demonstrate against anti-democratic forces whose desire is to overturn Nigeria’s just-concluded presidential election and cause unrest in the country,” he said.

He added that the protest was also to show solidarity for a mandate that was freely given to Tinubu at the polls by Nigerians and to let the world know that he was the winner of the election as declared by INEC, Nigeria’s electoral body.

“We will defend the voice of the majority of Nigerian electorate because we have come too far to let some few selected people destroy what we have built over decades,” the APC USA Youth Leader said.

Bello, who is also the Deputy Director, North America APC Youth Wing Campaign Council, therefore, invited all defenders of democracy to a peaceful protest outside Washington Capital on the slated date.

“The APC USA Chapter, under the leadership of Prof. Adesegun Labinjo, its National Chairman, and Maryland Branch Chairman, Mr Adeleke Lamoriyu, had secured a permit for the protest to show solidarity for the peoples’ mandate freely given to Tinubu on Feb. 25 at the poll.

“We will galvanise and work hard to defend the voice of the majority of Nigerian electorate because we have come too far to let some few selected people destroy what we have built over decades.

“I hereby call on all patriots, lovers and defenders of democracy far and near to join us as we show our support for the people’s mandate,” Bello said.

German Minister Commends Biden’s Campaign Withdrawal

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock praised US President Joe Biden’s decision to end his re-election campaign, emphasizing his prioritization of national interests.

Biden’s announcement, following concerns over his fitness for office, has left the Democratic Party in uncharted territory as Donald Trump’s campaign gains momentum.

Vice President Kamala Harris is now the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination.

Baerbock highlighted Biden’s role in maintaining strong international relations and NATO unity during his presidency, especially amid Russia’s war in Ukraine.

She stressed the importance of continued US-European cooperation for global peace and security.

Biden Campaign Missteps Lead to Reelection Withdrawa

U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to end his reelection campaign on Sunday followed a series of strategic missteps by his campaign team and White House aides. These errors amplified concerns that the 81-year-old president wouldn’t be able to win November’s election or run the country for another four years.

Biden’s halting performance at the June 27 presidential debate against Republican candidate Donald Trump pushed even some of his closest allies to question his endurance for a full campaign. This episode fueled a growing Democratic party movement questioning the wisdom of his second term. Within days, Biden went from the party’s figurehead to a liability, making him the first sitting president to stand down from a possible reelection since Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968.

Biden initiated the debate by telling radio show host Howard Stern in April that he’d engage Trump, despite worries from some Democratic allies that a debate might not improve his chances and could cast him in an unflattering light. Biden’s aides believed they had an advantage in agreeing to a June debate with CNN, setting the rules to favor Biden’s style. However, Biden’s performance during the debate, where he stumbled over his words and lost his train of thought, surprised and concerned voters, donors, and Democratic officials.

Following the debate, Trump criticized Biden’s incoherence, and Biden admitted his poor performance. Calls for Biden to step down began almost immediately. High-profile Democrats, including Jim Clyburn and Nancy Pelosi, began to question Biden’s viability as a candidate.

Despite efforts to regain momentum, including interviews, news conferences, and speeches, Biden continued to make missteps, such as confusing names at the NATO summit. Polls showed Biden trailing other Democrats in key states and districts, though the nationwide race remained close.

Biden was eventually persuaded to withdraw from the race while recovering from COVID-19 at his Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, home, where he had time to reflect on his decision.
