FAKE NEWS ALERT: Picture of Tinubu meeting Biden is photoshopped, says APC campaign

FAKE NEWS ALERT: Picture of Tinubu meeting Biden is photoshopped, says APC campaign

The All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council says a photograph of Bola Tinubu, its presidential flagbearer, and United States President, Joe Biden was photoshopped.

In a statement on Wednesday, Bayo Onanuga, the campaign’s director of media, alleged that the photograph of Tinubu is being propagated by the followers of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

Tinubu is expected to speak at Chatham House in the United Kingdom, visit the US and France where he has some engagements lined up for him in the first week of December.


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

“Although America was listed among his destinations, according to an unofficial report that was widely shared, we can confirm that the APC presidential candidate was in Abuja all through Tuesday.

“He was in Abuja on Monday as well and has no need to surreptitiously leave Nigeria like some candidates do.


“Tinubu will be travelling to Bayelsa for a rally on Thursday, according to the party’s campaign programme.
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.”
