Naomi Campbell had tweeted;
Was a pleasure to be invited by His Excellency The President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to the private launch of Eko Atlantic.
@NGRPresident @MBuhariREAD ALSOEx Nigerian President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan says I was elected President to spread wealth, not poverty
However denying the claims made in the tweet above, President Buhari’s media aide, Bashir Ahmad disclosed that Naomi Campbell only met President Buhari when he was touring the Eko Atlantic project, and requested to take photos with him. His tweet reads;
For the sake of clarity, President
@MBuharididn’t invite Ms. Naomi Campbell to any event during his 2-day visit to Lagos State. They only met at the Eko Atlantic City while Mr. President was touring the project, and she requested to take photos with him.
The Eko Atlantic City Project is an ambitious planned city being constructed on reclaimed land from the Atlantic Ocean. It is projected to accommodate at least 250,000 residents and a daily flow of 150,000 commuters when completed. Here’s how Nigerian’s are reacting to the claims by the Presidency;
Somebody that is mad….how tf do they lie with such confidence? Disgraceful bunch.
Bashir, u sef ur wahala is too much, Na u dey put ur Oga 4 most of dis online mess, must u tweet?! Buhari is a grown ass man, he can invite Mia khalifa if he wants, sometimes it’s better to say nothing, stop trying too hard
Who send you to shake this table with Buhari on it. It won’t end well!
How can they just meet there? Is that Campbell’s house or country? Her testimony is different anyways, so who is lying? Another PR mess abi!
And the President kindly exchanged handshake with her, something he hardly does with female members of FEC? This narrative get as he be oooooo
Wait oo, so you’re trying to tell me and other Nigerians that
@NaomiCampbell was the one who requested for a photo and not the other way round? Even if it was; then why was the pics posted to hype the president’s visit? Y’all should just chill on this lies biko
