2019: Presidency under attack for posting fake pictures against Atiku

The Presidency has come under serious attack for posting a photograph
of food and cash, claiming they were distributed at the Peoples
Democratic Party's rally held in Sokoto on Monday.

Media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Ms Lauretta Onochie, who
posted the picture on her social media pages, claimed that the PDP
presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, distributed cash and food at
his Sokoto rally held on Monday to induce voters.

Using her verified Twitter handle, @Laurestar, Onochie had tweeted an
image supposedly from the Sokoto campaign rally.

However, the tweet was greeted with reactions from angry Nigerians,
who pointed out that the image was taken in 2017.

However, observed that the same picture first appeared online in
February 2017, when a Lagos-based charity foundation released photos
from an outreach sponsored by popular actress, Ruth Eze.

Nigerians have since slammed Onochie on Twitter for false accusations
against former Vice President.

@Segunandrews "This picture was used in February 2017, it is the same
picture you're circulating to misinform the public. An aide to the
President spreading falsehood just to prove a point."

@Bhadooksy "So "Royalty" tweeted this picture 8th of March 2018.Fast
Forward to December 2018, "Lauretta Onochie" tweeted the same picture
with a different intent/caption. Ladies and gentlemen, brace up for

@LeoOmbs "You're a shame to your house hold and womanhood, that photo
was taken from a blog, which was posted sometimes in 2017, @APCNigeria
and their mischievous ways, will do anything just to score cheap
political points, you all better repent all be doomed because the end
has come for you!

@Abrahamdick "This picture by Presidency was an act of charity by an
actor in February this year during Valentine. Why do we always lie?"

@JosephineJisom1 "This rumor is false. Such a blatant lie. I reside in
Sokoto and I was present at the event, nothing like this shared. Stop
spreading fake pictures, you won't get our votes."

@Igenius_ng "This should tell us all the brand of integrity Buhari is
dishing out. This is a clear sign of a cunning leadership never before
seen in this country. So shameful."

@Yungcorleon "Why human being go dey lie like this? This picture has
been on the internet since last year."

@Leonardhandsome "Ma, this photo has been on the internet for decades.
Try something else."

@Raufoyewole "This is shameless on your part! This image was used
online in Feb 20th, 2017 by a foundation. Fake news."

@Paulkorok "She should be taken to court for spreading fake news."

@IamElvisgrey "You keep on giving the president a bad name madam.
Please always try to investigate and vet stuff before you post. Please
I beg you don't work against Buhari haba always!!! At least read
comments and see the picture is fake so you delete post apologise or
not and move on."

@Ogbenidipo "The sort of country I dream of is not a country where
people like Lauretta Onochie will have an opportunity to speak for or
on behalf of the President or Presidency, commit multiple blunders,
fail to resign, and they are not fired."

@Nfutajiogu "This picture has being in circulation since last year
madam. Is this how you people campaign by tarnishing the image of your
opponent? Shame!!!

@LawrenceBob "You're are the main reason @MBuhari will fail in 2019
elections and I thank God for that. You always use pictures of
different events and make shameful propaganda. Only a numbskull will
retain you in his cabinet/campaign team."
