The Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissociated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu from a viral photo with United States President Joe Biden in talks at the White House.
The council, in a statement Wednesday by it’s Director, Media and Publicity, Bayo Onanuga, said that the viral photo ” is the latest in the series of misinformation being dished out by the political opposition.”
Onanuga insisted that the APC presidential candidate has been in Abuja since Monday and is billed for a scheduled campaign engagement in Bayelsa State on Thursday.
The statement reads: “A viral photograph showing Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and United State 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 apparently photo-shopped image surfaced Tuesday night, on the heels of news that Asiwaju Tinubu will embark on a foreign trip this weekend.
“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 does not need to surreptitiously leave Nigeria, as some candidates do.”
Unveiling Tinubu’s immediate itineray, Onanuga said: “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.”
The statement concluded that Tinubu’s first port of call outside the country will be Chatham House in London where he will speak on his actionplan for Nigeria.
