The Tinubu Support Group said Congress of All Progressives leader and 2023 presidential hopeful Bola Tinubu was not giving grants.

The group described as fraudulent an online portal promoting what it called the “Tinubu support grant”.

The portal reportedly asked Nigerians to “Hurry now and check if you are eligible to receive a N25,000 support fund under the Tinubu Support Grant”.

But in a statement on Thursday, pro-Tinubu group spokesman Tosin Adeyanju said “the portal is bogus and certainly does not have Tinubu’s permission.”

The statement was titled “TSG disassociates itself from online platform promoting grants.”

Adeyanju said: “The objective of the criminals behind this scam is to defraud unsuspecting members of the public by announcing the identity of Alhaji Tinubu as being associated with the fraud.

“We warn supporters of Alhaji Ahmed Tinubu and the general public not to frequent any portal called Tinubu Support Grant.

“We call on law enforcement to track and arrest those behind this online crime and identity forgery and bring them to justice.”
