Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
FORMER Governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke, has slammed the All Progressive Congress for his using his photograph in various documentaries to depict the childhood of its presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Duke made this startling revelation to editors during a roundtable that was organised by the Front Fort Media Initiative and the MacArthur Foundation and held recently in Lagos.
The documentaries which were televised some months and also uploaded on various YouTube channels, used a slew of photos and videos to narrate the life history, political ascendancy, and
And in the ., a particular monochrome photograph of a young boy in dark sunglasses, seated and with his fingers joined together, was cited as Bola Tinubu during his years as a young boy.
However, Duke said that the photo of the boy shown as ‘young Tinubu’ in the documentaries, is him and not the Bola Tinubu as televised. He said that he took the picture when he was 12 years old.
“The picture of the boy used as Bola Tinubu in all the documentaries is me. I am the boy in the picture, not Tinubu as they claimed in their documentaries. That photo was taken when I was 12 years old during my school years at the Federal Government College Sokoto, in Sokoto state.” Duke said.
