FACT CHECK: Did Tinubu’s Daughter Ask Him To Drop Presidential Ambition As Claimed In Viral Video?

A Twitter post that has gone viral claims that a daughter of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, made a video cautioning him to drop his presidential ambition on the grounds that he is not fit for the position.

The post reads, “UNBELIEVABLE (video) officialABAT daughter Funmilayo Tinubu opposes her father’s desperation to be president. Says he’s unfit to rule Nigeria at this critical time.”

In the video, the woman called Tinubu her father at different points while making her point.

Verification

Checks by Daily Trust revealed that the caption used in the post is misleading.

The video, which was originally posted on Instagram, had been shared recently on Twitter.

However, the author of the original post is an activist and Instagram Influencer, Adetoun Onajobi who posted the video on her official Instagram page (justadetoun) in July.

Daily Trust gathered that she referred to Asiwaju Tinubu as her “father” in the video figuratively because she considers him a father out of respect and the relationship he has with her husband.

Before the video surfaced on the internet, Adetoun had previously made it clear in an interview on a show called Rubbin’ Minds, that “Tinubu is like a father to me but I will never endorse him.”

Conclusion

Daily Trust can confirm that the video is misleading and was not made by any of Tinubu’s biological children.

God Bless the next president of Nigeria Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Please vote Asiwaju Tinubu.

Don't you think children could get petrified at the sight of these Thiefnubu's pictures?
Horror movie stuff.
cheesy grin

MOFIFIED:

Meanwhile, I urge all patriotic Nigerians to always disregard any news that emanates from "PM News".
It's a Thiefnubu propaganda/falsehood-dispensing outfit owned by Bayo Onanuga (Media Director of the Thiefnubu Campaign Organization)

You'll be seeing barrages of opposition-targeted outright fabrications/falsehood from them preparatory to 2023.
Please don't take them seriously.

Misleading the public should be a great offense and attract jail term !! Spreading false informations should be a criminal offense and the security agencies should start arresting individuals spreading false informations online to mislead the general public!!

The opposition campaign has been based on lies, falsehood and propaganda. For them, it’s one day one lie. The obituarists led by Peter Obi Pandora are the worst. Peter Obi lies so effortlessly that he even lies against an innocent mad man.

FACT CHECK: Did Tinubu say 50 million youths should be recruited into Nigerian army

Claim: There have been many posts on social media that Tinubu said 50 million youths should be recruited into Nigerian army.


Research:
Video of Tinubu speech reveals he actually said it>


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP0WRxbq4o0

Several media also reported it.

From Channels TV

“We are under-policed and we are competing with armed robbers and bandits to recruit from the youths who are unemployed —33 per cent unemployed?

“Recruit 50 million youths into the army, what they will eat —cassava, corn, yam, will grow here.


“Don’t talk about illiteracy, anybody who can hold a gun, who can handle a gun, who can cock and shoot is technically competent to repair a tractor in the farm,” the Asiwaju stated while addressing guests at the 12th colloquium organised in his honour.

The next fact check should be:

Did Tinubu really develop Lagos or colonise it?

Even Fasola perfomed far better than him, not to talk of Governors Buba Marwa and Lateef Jakande who were governors of Lagos State before Tinubu.

I haven't read the article but since it's Daily Thrust fact checking Tinubu, I know the conclusion would be something like:
No, Tinubu's daughter never said such.

This is Nairaland mod and Tinubu supporter new strategy to demarket Peter Obi. They Created thousands of username. They will propagate lies from anti-peter Obi newspapers such as daily trust and The nation or paid agents, then they will use that their fake accounts to comments and likes the comments. They will drag that thread to many pages to justify that their fake accounts and likes. The mod will help them push it to front page once the comments entered second or third pages. Do not buy to their cheap propaganda there purpose is to convince you that Obi is loosing popularity and that people are now switching to thiefnubu. Copy

Even I consider Peter Obi a father for being 61yrs old.

I therefore urge him to withdraw and endorse the best candidate, Tinubu, to rescue our economy.

Please vote Asiwaju Tinubu.

According to Pastor David Ibiyomie, and i quote......
"The Bible says in the book of Ecclesiastes Chapter 10: Woe unto the nation whose leader is a child.
So if you are planning on voting-in a child who moves around wearing pampers, then you a fool & a very big failure."
Those were the words of Ibioyomie.
A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE.
