“This is the most ludicrous campaign gimmick! We are not aware of this no-brainer kindergarten stunt and should not be associated with such crass. I am gutted! This is insulting to thousands and millions of Nigerians battling with the scarcity of fuel and cash.
“The Diaspora Directorate is not part of this tragicomedy. This is opposition propaganda to misinform Nigerians. We call on our supporters and well meaning Nigerians who believe in the Renewed Hope agenda of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu should disregard this cheap propaganda.”
