A video of former Cross Rivers State governor Donald Duke confirming that the APC used his boyhood picture to depict a young Bola Tinubu in a documentary has surfaced.
Last week, reports circulated on various platforms that the APC had used a photograph of Donald Duke in a documentary to pass him off as a young Bola Tinubu.
It was later revealed that the photograph was of a 12-year-old Donald Duke, taken during his high school days in Sokoto.
The photograph was included in Tinubu’s documentary, which was reportedly televised on TVC and uploaded to YouTube channels, and told of his childhood, education, and other life stories.
In a video which has surfaced online, Donald Duke confirmed the reports, saying;
“My disagreement is that my photograph as a 12-year-old is used as his photograph. So they couldn’t find his photograph as a young person and they had to take my own photograph
The picture of the boy used as Bola Tinubu in all the documentaries is me. I am the boy in the picture, not Tinubu as they claimed in their documentaries.
“That photo was taken when I was 12 years old during my school years at the Federal Government College Sokoto, in Sokoto stat.”
Watch the video below:
Until I saw this video of Donald Duke confirming it *is* his picture being passed off as young BAT in the Bola Tinubu documentary, I’d dismissed all the previous talk.
I thought it was propaganda.
I didn’t believe anyone would be so brazen.
