A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described a purported letter written by Nigeria’s President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George, as fake.
Tinubu, in the purported letter on Wednesday, asked George not to proceed on self-exile or political retirement after his emergence as the president-elect.
In the letter which has been circulating on social media, Tinubu was said to have assured the former National Vice Chairman of the PDP that he would not be victimized for not supporting him.
“I hope you find it within yourself to stay and be a part of Nigeria’s hopeful future.
“However, if you feel that you do not want to live in the new Nigeria, nobody, least of all me, can force you to remain here,” part of the letter in circulation reads.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode said the letter from Tinubu To George is fake and should be disregarded by all Nigerians.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain said the president-elect has better things to do than to sit down and write a letter to the PDP chieftain.
He wrote: “I assure you that the President-elect of the Federal Republic of NIGERIA, our leader @officialABAT has better things to do than to write an open letter to Baba Bode George. Believe that he did so and you will believe anything. The letter is as FAKE as a nun’s condom.”
I assure you that the President-elect of the Fed. Republic of NIGERIA, our leader @officialABAT has better things to do than to write an open letter to Baba Bode George. Believe that he did so and you will believe anything. The letter is as FAKE as a nun’s condom.

Naija News recalls that in March 2022, George vowed to leave Nigeria for Ghana if Bola Tinubu wins the 2023 presidential election.
The PDP chieftain had vowed to leave the country at least five times if the former Governor of Lagos State emerges as the president.
