Tinubu's manifesto: Asiwaju had in his manifesto, indicated an intention to establish a bold and assertive policy capable of creating a robust architecture to effectively tackle terrorism, banditry, kidnapping and other forms of criminal activities causing havoc in the country.

What you should know: Tinubu's jetting out to the UK comes barely a day before the presidential town hall meeting, organised by Arise TV, in partnership with Centre for Development and Democracy (CDD), to engage candidates from the four major political parties in the country.

The Director of Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, said in a statement titled, ‘Tinubu Won’t Succumb to Arise News’ Blackmail,’ that he found it ‘shocking and downright anomalous’ that Arise TV continues to broadcast the participation of Tinubu in its town hall meeting despite an earlier statement that he would not be available for the engagement.
