A fact-checking platform, Dubawa, scrutinised the claim. The media outlet noted that the post garnered over 160 likes and 230+ comments.

Dubawa said it did a Google reverse image check on the picture and found a similar picture had been taken of Tinubu with businessman billionaire, Aliko Dangote. The meeting happened in April.

Also, a trademark name appeared on the doctored version of the original picture, which the fact-checking platform said is usually the practice of digital creators to market themselves.

Furthermore, no credible newspaper reported that Obi visited the Aso Villa

Therefore, Dubawa ruled that the image used to represent the post had been doctored.

Earlier, reported that the petitions filed by Obi and Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) presidential candidate, against Tinubu’s victory are nearing their conclusion.
