‘Many Nigerians were able to detect that the newspaper in Tinubu’s hand as seen in the photo he shared, was printed in January 2022’
Nigerian socio-political activist, Reno Omokri, has mocked the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congres (APC), Bola Tinubu, over a viral photo showing him reading a January 2022 newspaper in October 2022.
The APC presidential candidate, Tinubu had posted a photo of himself earlier online reading a newspaper
Tinubu’s photo which is perceived to be an attempt by the presidential hopeful to dispel rumours about his health status has since generated a barrage of reactions on social media.
Many Nigerians were however able to detect that the newspaper in Tinubu’s hand as seen in the photo he shared, was printed in January 2022
Joining the host of others in making a mockery of the presidential candidate, Omokri on Thursday afternoon wrote: “This story was published on January 23, 2022. First an old video of your riding an exercise bike. Now, an old photo of your reading ab outdated newspaper? Bola, you should definitely fire the propagandist handling your Twitter account.”
In a different post on the microblogging platform, Omokri also shared a photo of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders, including governors and the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Reacting to a side of the photo which shows the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, kneeling to communicate with Atiku, Omokri said the scene serves as a disappointment to those who presumed that the opposition camp is divided.
