The protest was on the heels of the EU post-election report that disclosed that the 2023 presidential election was marred with electoral fraud and violence.
The report criticised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and how it conducted the election that produced President Bola Tinubu.

The cohorts of President Tinubu have since rejected this report and triggered some of his supporters to stage a protest at the EU’s office in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

In his reaction, Shuaibu said:
“We seize this opportunity to send a warning to the Tinubu government and its minions against disrupting the proceedings of the election tribunal as they have shown a clear disdain for the truth by picketing the EU office.”
Shauibu also recounted how late legal icon Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) sued Tinubu in 1999 for alleged forgery of his school certificate.
According to Shuaibu, when Tinubu was “facing charges before the Code of Conduct Tribunal, thugs were similarly sponsored to protest at the trial, all in a bid to intimidate the judiciary.”
Shuaibu further urged security agencies to be on high alert for any move or attempt to disrupt the proceedings of the presidential election tribunal.
“…We sound a note of warning to the security agencies to be on the alert as the tribunal proceedings wind down. The world is watching.”

In another development, the newly appointed presidential tax reform committee chairman, Taiwo Oyedele, has been urged not to compromise his true self.
Phrank Shuaibu, a media aide to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, described Oyedele as a strong critic of the President before his appointment.
Shuaibu urged Oyedele not to stop criticising bad economic policies as he accused Tinubu of using late-General Sani Abacha’s tactics to lure his critics to his camp.
