Musician, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy has vowed to leave Nigeria if either Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party or Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress wins the 2023 presidential election.

The social activist said he will leave Nigeria for Ghana and beg the West African country for citizenship should any of the duo emerge as Nigeria’s president next year.

Vantage News had reported that Tinubu clinched the presidential ticket of the APC at the just concluded primary at the Eagle Square, Abuja, on Wednesday.

Charly Boy, who reacted via his Twitter handle, said, “If any of these two jabagantis win, I go just leave una walker go Ghana, go beg dem for citizenship. Buhari will look like a saint.”

The former Lagos State Governor, Tinubu, polled 1,271 votes to clinch the party’s presidential ticket ahead of next year’s election.

The Chairman of the Convention Election Management Committee, Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State disclosed this at Eagle Square, the venue of the special convention after the votes were sorted and counted.

In his speech, Tinubu apologised to President Muhammadu Buhari for keeping him waiting since Tuesday, adding that it was necessary as he had also been kept waiting by the president at one time or the other.

“I also offer my sincere gratitude to President Buhari for his calm and prudent leadership throughout this process. I thank him, also, for his steadfast determination to ensure a level playing field and a free and fair primary process for every aspirant. Without him, I would not be standing here today as the new flagbearer of Nigeria’s party,” he said.
