Dele Alake, media adviser to the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, says one Lloyd Ukwu, a US-based Nigerian claiming to be an executive director of National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), is trying to discredit the victory of Bola Tinubu, president-elect.

Ukwu is said to have granted a press conference where he made disparaging remarks about the credibility of the February 25 elections.

In a statement on Thursday, Alake said the “impostor” is working to further a sinister agenda on behalf of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).
