Claim

The claim that Peter Obi recently visited Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the company of Aliko Dangote has been circulating on social media, along with a photograph that purportedly shows the three of them amongst others together. 

Verdict

Upon investigation, it has been found that the photograph is a manipulated image and the claim is false.

Verification

Factcheckelections found that the photograph was photoshopped. The original photograph featured Aliko Dangote and Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but not Peter Obi. The photograph was taken during a previous meeting between the two men, which has been misrepresented by the person who manipulated the image.

Furthermore, there is no credible evidence to support the claim that Peter Obi visited Bola Ahmed Tinubu recently. No major news outlet or credible source has reported such a meeting taking place, and no photographic or video evidence has been produced to back up the claim.

The claim appears to have originated on social media, with a tweet from a user named “LUCA BRASI -5.0 The UnderBoss.” The tweet features a photograph of three men, with the caption “After Jumat…Meeting with zaddy from left.. Small Srulere Zaddy, BIGGER ZADDY, ZADDY OF ZADDIES, ZAD, LAGOS ZADDY.” The photograph shows Aliko Dangote and Bola Ahmed Tinubu alongside a man who is purported to be Peter Obi.

However, upon closer examination, it is clear that the photograph has been manipulated. The image of Peter Obi has been superimposed onto the photograph, creating the false impression that he was present at the meeting. This kind of manipulation is common on social media, where users frequently create and share false or misleading images in order to gain attention or spread false information.

 Conclusion 

The claim that Peter Obi recently visited Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the company of Aliko Dangote is false. The photograph that has been circulating on social media is a manipulated image, and there is no credible evidence to support the claim. It is important to exercise caution and skepticism when encountering claims and information on social media, and to seek out credible sources and evidence before accepting them as true.
