‘A one-hour meeting without photos’… How Twitter doubted Osinbajo’s visit to Buhari
Many Nigerians on Twitter are unconvinced that Acting President Yemi Osinbajo actually met with President Muhammadu Buhari in London on Tuesday.
Osinbajo told journalists on Wednesday that he and the President spent “well over an hour” discussing “wide-ranging issues”, adding that Buhari was in high spirits and was recuperating fast.
But the doubters said if that was the case, the presidency would have published photos or even a video of the meeting.
Below are a number of the reactions on Twitter:
Osinbajo flew to London just to meet Buhari for one hour and return home immediately? Seems APC Govt is yet to understand how SKYPE works.

“I can’t tell when new ministers will be inaugurated. Buhari returning soon”
This is not the best way to run a serious govt
