Following his exit from Nigeria about 10 days ago barely 2-weeks after he returned from his post-election vacation, President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been asked to produce evidence of his alleged meetings with investors in France.
When the president-elect traveled on May 10, there were speculations that he had traveled out again on medical grounds, but his aide, Tunde Rahman, said in a statement that the former Lagos State Governor left the nation to carry out some tasks.
Rahman said Tinubu would use the opportunity to fine-tune the transition plans, programmes, and policy options with some of his aides.
He added that during the visit, Tinubu would engage with investors and other key allies.
However, on Tinubu’s return on Saturday, Daniel Bwala, spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar asked to see evidence of Tinubu’s meeting with the said investors in France.
According to him, there were no meetings between Tinubu and any investors in France.
Instead, Bwala disclosed that the Jagaban only met with politicians and lobbyists from Nigeria.
“Now that he (Tinubu) has finished his so-called official visit to meet with investors, etc, I dare them to release the photos of those meetings.
“I bet you if they release the photos, the foreign investors would turn out to be Nigerian politicians and Nigerian lobbyists from Nigeria,” he posted on Twitter.
Tinubu last week met with the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, in Paris.
