Delhi: Our reporter was alerted by his friends yesterday that an email was being circulated by Nigerians among the Aam Aadmi Party supporters, urging them to share their bank details for opening AAP branch in Nigeria.
In a press meet yesterday evening, Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson, Yoqendra Yadav appeared happy, when he showed the printed mails to the press, waving and saying, “See, the Africans themselves want to support our party. We had already produced Ugandan High commission letter, but you people were not ready to believe. Now, we have mail from Central Bank of Nigeria supporting our party and even extending support by starting our party branch in Nigeria. I urge fellow AAP members to support them for doing the right thing.”
Supporters of AAP were seen forwarding the emails to their friends and relatives, so that they too can contribute for NAAP . One AAP volunteer looked amused, “Bhai, see, they said they will be returning us money in millions.. that too in dollars. We can use them to build our
homes Delhi streets and will use that fund for our family vacation Lok Sabha elections. We can also contest in Africa under African Aam Aadmi Party(AAAP). We just need to share your bank account number.. I shared our party’s official bank account number, which houses the funds received till now. See, how it is going to increase in millions soon..”
Our reporter got hold of one such email. Below is the email that is being circulated:
