Social media has been buzzing recently with a controversial tweet attributed to Ghanaian actor John Dumelo. The tweet claims:
“From 29th May 2023, pictures of a drug dealer will be on the walls of every office in Nigeria as a president. A sad day for West Africa!!!”
This serious claim implicates Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Tinubu. However, upon close examination by the MandyNews.com team, we found that the tweet does not originate from Dumelo and lacks verifiable evidence.
Origins of the claim
The tweet first surfaced from a user named Chy Gold, or @ifygold21, who is not connected to John Dumelo. Despite diligent efforts to investigate, no evidence was found to suggest Dumelo was the author of the controversial post.
What we know about Tinubu
Bola Tinubu’s political career has been public and under scrutiny since he first entered politics. As the former Governor of Lagos State, there have been no credible charges or convictions of drug-related offenses against him.
Our rating: False
Based on our investigation, the claim that the controversial tweet came from John Dumelo is FALSE. The tweet originated from another Twitter user, and Dumelo has not made any similar posts on his social media platforms. Always ensure to check the facts before sharing information, especially when it involves serious allegations against public figures.
