Naomi Campbell meets Buhari
and President at the Eko Atlantic City on Friday March 30, 2018

President Muhammadu Buhari while taking a tour round Eko Atlantic City he met British model and actor, Naomi Campbell. That’s cool right? but something else springged up that has provoked reactions.

Naomi Campbell was in Lagos for Arise Fashion Week 2018 but Nigerians were shocked to see her with the president on his tour of the new city under construction. This actually raised eyebrows.

The Controversy

The supermodel had actually posted she was invited by the president for the private launching of the Eko Atlantic City which is still under construction.

She tweeted, “Was a pleasure to be invited by his Excellency, the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Bharti, to the private launch of Eko Atlantic @NGRPresident @MBuhari.”

After deleting the post, she replaced it with, “Was a pleasure to meet His Excellency the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, to the launch of Eko Atlantic. Here for Arise Fashion Week.”

Unfortunately for Naomi Campbell, Nigerians had seen the first tweet before she pulled it down which followed suit with lot of questions.

A Twitter user with the Olawoyin 4 u, posted a screenshot of her first post and asked why the supermodel deleted the tweet . He posted on his twitter handle, “Nigerians want to know why you deleted the post below ?”.

After all these drama, The Presidency denied any content from Naomi Campbell first tweet. A tweet by the Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, said, “For the sake of clarity, President MBuhari didn’t invite Ms. Naomi Campbell to any event during his 2 – day visit to Lagos State.”
