A Google reverse image search led to the discovery of photos showing President Tinubu and Aliko Dangote meeting at Tinubu’s private residence. Dangote, being one of the richest men in Africa, attracts media attention with his movements. This meeting was reported on 12 May by Legit, a news platform in Nigeria.
Comparing these authentic photos with the suspicious image, it becomes evident that the latter has been digitally manipulated.

In conclusion, there is no evidence to support the claim that Tinubu and Obi had a meeting. The image circulating on social media is a result of digital manipulation and should be disregarded.
