Tinubu dispels report of being in U.S., insists ‘I’m in Abuja’

A viral photograph purporting that presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, as being presently in the United States of America (U.S.A) is false, photoshopped and the wicked invention of his political foes.


The true position of things is that Tinubu is in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, and has been, even since last Monday.


Director of Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Mr Bayo Onanuga disclosed these while speaking to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja today.


He dismissed as fake the said picture in which Tinubu was with U.S President Joe Biden, urging people to disregard it.


Onanuga said: “A viral photograph showing Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and U.S President, Joe Biden in talks at the White House is the latest in the series of misinformation being dished out by the political opposition.


“We cannot just fathom the purpose of the mischief and the falsehood which emanated from the rabid followers of Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate.


“The apparently photo-shopped image surfaced Tuesday night, on the heels of news that Asiwaju will embark on a foreign trip this weekend.”


Onanuga noted that although U.S.A. was listed among Tinubu’s destinations, going by an unofficial report that was widely shared, the APC presidential candidate was in Abuja all through Tuesday.


He stressed that Tinubu was in Abuja on Monday as well, insisting that he had no need to surreptitiously leave Nigeria, like some other presidential candidates did.


Onanuga disclosed that Tinubu is billed to travel to Bayelsa State for a rally on Thursday, according to the party’s campaign programme.


The director added: “He is not scheduled to travel outside the country until the weekend for speaking engagements.


“His first port of call will be Chatham House in London, where he will speak on his Action Plan for Nigeria.’’
