Viral Photo: Bola Tinubu denies meeting Joe Biden

Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said he doesn't care about articles, stories, and hot topics on social media.

Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has denied he met with Vice President Joe Biden.

The APC presidential candidate’s photo with Biden in the United States quickly went viral online.

Tinubu, however, has claimed that the viral photo of him with Biden is fake.

He claimed that supporters of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), were behind the image’s dissemination.

Tinubu, through APC PCC Director of Media and Publicity, Bayo Onanuga, claimed that Obi’s supporters had doctored the image that went viral.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), 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 photoshopped image surfaced Tuesday night, on the heels of news that Asiwaju will embark on a foreign trip this weekend.”

According to Onanuga, Tinubu is in Abuja and not the United States.

However, he confirmed that the APC presidential candidate would be visiting the United States this weekend.

He mentioned that Tinubu was scheduled to go to Bayelsa on Thursday for a rally.

Tinubu’s campaign announced that his first stop would be at London’s Chatham House, where he would present his “Action Plan for Nigeria.”
