Tokunbo Awolowo-Dosunmu, the daughter of Nigerian nationalist and statesman, Obafemi Awolowo has alleged a plot to rid of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu should he win the 2023 presidential elections.

According to her, the plan is to get rid of the candidate and install, Kashim Shettima, his running mate as president.

Awolowo-Dosunmu claimed that the plot may be perfected immediately after the 2023 swearing-in.

She said those behind the plot would take advantage of Tinubu’s medical condition.

Awolowo-Dosunmu appealed to Yorubas to stop being sentimental and tribalist about the three major candidates contesting for the office of the presidency.

“They are plotting against Tinubu; Yorubas should wake up. They are aware of Tinubu’s medical condition.

“All they are planning is, immediately after handing over and swearing-in, they are going to get rid of Tinubu and Sheetima will be your next president if you are not careful.

“Yorubas have to wake up and not allow emotions to lead us,” she told newsmen in Lagos.
