Bayo Onanuga, the Media Director of Nigeria, speaking on behalf of Tinubu, denied the meeting.

 

There had been rumours that Ariwoola ‘disguised’ on a wheelchair to fly out of Nigeria to meet with Tinubu in the UK.

 

In a statement released on Thursday, Onanuga claimed the story was “a pure concoction” from hatchet men.

 

He also explained that Tinubu was still in France resting and has not been to the UK yet.

 

“To show that the story was a mere salacious fiction, meant to draw traffic to the discredited purveyor, it claimed the Chief Justice left Nigeria for London on 11 March, on a wheel chair to board a plane.

 

“The President elect left Nigeria on 21 March, 10 clear days thereafter. What kind of appointment or secret meeting will the two men have arranged in London, with so wide disparate arrival dates, except in the imagination of the false news merchants?

 

“We can confirm that the President-elect, who left Nigeria Tuesday has not been in London,” the statement read in part.

 

It further warned Nigerians and the media to be wary of more fake news as the countdown to the presidential inauguration on May 29 continues.
