Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode says the latest picture showing some APC Governors, party Chairman, John Oyegun and President Muhammadu Buhari, purportedly taken in London, is “old and fake.”
This is contained in snippets of his news article sent to us on Monday.
He said: “I have been reliably informed that the picture was taken in Abuja some time back and not yesterday in London.
“Quite apart from that, even though the picture was meant to have been taken in London curiously all the drinks on the table are Nigerian products and Nigerian-made.
“Did the Governors take all those drinks along with them to London when they went to see the President?
“Is Buhari not coming home soon again? Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo and some government officials told us that he would be back on the 28th of July which is just a few days away.
“Why the need for the APC Governors to “visit” him in far away London if he will be back in Nigeria in a few days?
“What was the purpose and point of this fake photoshoot and this strange breakfast meeting? What was the purpose and objective of this monumental fraud and deceit?
“Whatever the answers may be to these questions the curtain must be brought down on what can only be described as a puerile and nauseating conspiracy.
“For those who still believe that the meeting actually took place there are some nagging questions that need to be answered.
“For example why were the Nigerian and foreign media not allowed to cover the proceedings and participate in this celebrated photo-soot and merry London feast?
“Why did the Villa press corps not take one of their own camera men to London and make a short video of the event?
“Why was the whole event shrouded in so much secrecy? Why is it that only one picture was taken? Why were more pictures not taken? Why was Buhari not put on audio tape and recorded talking to his guests?”
