Tinubu Postponed His U.S Trip, He Wasn’t Denied Visa – Orji Uzor Kalu Reveals

 

Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu has debunked rumours that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, wasn’t denied a visa to the United States.

According to him, Tinubu only postponed his travel to the US but wasn’t denied a visa as speculated.

Naija News gathered that Kalu, in a Facebook post on Saturday, said Tinubu would be welcomed with open arms by the US because of his warm personality.

His reaction follows rumours that Tinubu was denied a visa to enter the U.S.

The Senate Chief Whip alleged that the rumours were coming from the camp of the opposition parties.

Kalu submitted that “As the election draws closer, the opposition will spread more fake news against our presidential candidate but we should always ignore and keep our eyes on the ball.

“The news that Tinubu was denied a visa to the USA is as fake as other fake news. Tinubu postponed the travel himself and was never denied a visa.

“The State Department of the US confirmed to me that Tinubu will be received in the third week of December.

“As the presidential candidate of our party with outstanding personality, he will be warmly welcomed in the United States.”
