According to Orji Uzor Kalu, Senator representing Abia North in the 9th Senate the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu was never denied a US visa as has been rumoured.
Kalu, who debunked the report on his Facebook page on Saturday, December 3rd,2022, blamed the opposition for the incident.
The presidential candidate’s trip to the United States has been postponed, according to Kalu, who dismissed the allegation as fake news and stated that the information he had from the Department of State indicated that Tinubu will be welcomed in the country during the third week of December.
He said, “As the election draws closer, the opposition will spread more fake news against our presidential candidate but we should always ignore and keep our eyes on the ball.”
“The news that Tinubu was denied a visa to the USA is as fake as other fake news. Tinubu postponed the travel himself and was never denied the visa.”
“The State Department of the US confirmed to me that Tinubu will be received in the third week of December.”
*As the presidential candidate of our party with an outstanding personality, he will be warmly welcomed in the United States.”
