THE Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has debunked the rumours that the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is in the United States, noting that he is in Abuja.
This was disclosed by the Director of Media and Publicity of APC’s PCC, Mr Bayo Onanuga, on Wednesday in Abuja, during his interview with newsmen.
He stressed that the trending photo of the APC’s flagbearer being with US President, Joe Biden is fake and should be disregarded.
In his words during the interview, Mr 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.”
The APC’s PCC Media Director also added that although Tinubu has been billed to visit the US, he was still in Abuja as at Tuesday.
Mr Onanuga further said that Tinubu wil be in Bayelsa on Thursday for a rally and has no plans of travelling out of the country without informing everyone.
In his words: “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.”
