ormer deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, on Wednesday, August 30, described the alleged request of the President of the United States of America (USA), Joe Biden, to meet President Bola Tinubu as inappropriate and condemnable.

Frank said the meeting billed to take place at the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in September is suspicious.

According to him, Tinubu currently lacks legitimacy due to the fact that the result of the 2023 presidential election is being contested in the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, The Nigerian Tribune reported.

Frank noted that Biden’s request which was conveyed by a US presidential envoy and assistant secretary of state for African affairs, Ambassador Molly Phee, defeats the stance of the American Government on democracy and sanctity of the ballot, Leadership report added.

He said: “This move by Biden is certainly anti-American stance on rule of law and a bad example in collaborations in view of the pendency of suits challenging the declaration of Tinubu as President and multiple investigations ongoing concerning his integrity, true identity and academic records both in Nigeria and USA."
