I Did Not Meet With Wike In France- Tinubu

2023: Pa Fasoranti backs Tinubu’s presidential ambition


Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has reacted to reports that he and Rivers State Governor, Nyeson Wike, had a meeting in France.

The All Progressives Congress’s presidential candidate is currently in the European country while Wike is holidaying in Turkey.

According to him, however, there has not been any meeting between them.

Tinubu’s media officer, Tunde Rahman, noted in a statement on Friday that the reported meeting was fake news:

“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,” the statement said.

“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 line’s 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 advice journalists to always cross-check their information with appropriate officers before rushing to press to avoid unintended errors.”
