A viral report about a meeting in France between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Nyesom Wike is nothing but fake news, the Tinubu media office said on Friday night.

The statement by Tunde Rahman dismissed the report, but said Tinubu is ready to meet “any important national leader when desirable”.

Read the full statement:

We have seen a viral social media post made by one of the chieftains of All Progressives Congress in Lagos State and media reports emanating from same about a supposed meeting in France between APC Presidential Standard-bearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and His Excellency, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

It has become imperative to set the record straight. Although Asiwaju Tinubu is presently in France, he didn’t have any meeting with Governor Wike whether in that country or anywhere whatsoever.

This, however, does not detract from the fact that the APC presidential candidate holds Governor Wike in high esteem.

And given the national and across-party lines appeal of Asiwaju Tinubu’s candidature, he will not hesitate to meet any important national leader when desirable.

As made public earlier, Asiwaju Tinubu is in France for some important engagements. He will return to the country shortly.

We would like, once again, to advise journalists to always cross-check their information with appropriate officers before rushing to press to avoid unintended errors.
