“Tinubu has not purchased a new plane"- APC leader denies Thisday reports

APC topnotch, Bola Tinibu has denied reports by Thisday newspaper that he has acquired a new airplane, explaining that he only one he has used for more than a decade.
This much is contained in a statement issued by his Special Assistant, Ademola Oshodi. He said the story was false and partial and accused Thisday of pandering to whims of its paymasters.
Read part of the statement below. 


Bola Tinibu
“The THISDAY story of Sunday, July 23, 2017 claiming Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has recently purchased a new airplane is symptomatic of what happens when a publication divorces itself from any pretence of objective and impartial reportage.
“This is what happens when a newspaper becomes a mercenary tool for partisan designs. THISDAY has a partisan axe to grind and it seeks to grind that axe against someone like Asiwaju Bola Tinubu because that is what the paymasters of THISDAY demand of it.
“So eager to be seen as loyal to the whims of its paymasters, THISDAY stands disloyal to the very truth it professes to publish. Rather than practice journalism, this publication now specialises in peddling rumour and manufacturing fake scandal. One of the paper’s favourite excursions into fiction is to publish any and all things false about Bola Tinubu. Why THISDAY has such animus against Tinubu only the paper can answer. That such irrational hatred exists cannot be controverted.”

“Tinubu has not purchased a new plane. He is currently using the same plane he has used for over a decade now.
“But these merchants of fake news are more interested in attacking perceived enemies than in enlightening the public as should be the call of a newspaper"
