The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has revealed why he asked some members of the party to respond to questions directed to him at Chatham House, London, on Monday.
According to Tinubu, his political allies were delegated to respond to questions in order to reflect his method of “team-ship.”

Addressing Nigerians and foreigners at Chatham House, Tinubu after his opening remarks, assigned Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai to speak on how he would address insecurity and asked the Director of Strategic Communication of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Aleke, to respond to the question on oil theft.
