#PMBInLagos: Naomi Campbell says Buhari invited her to Lagos, Presidency disagrees

There is a brewing controversy following the “meeting” between President Muhammadu Buhari and British supermodel Naomi Campbell at the Eko Atlantic City, Lagos.

The presidency had shared photos of Buhari, Campbell, Bola Tinubu and Governor Akinwunmi Ambode at the Eko Atlantic City, saying that the president was on tour of the site.

This caused a stir on social media, with various Nigerians asking what Campbell’s mission at the site was. Campbell also tweeted, with photos to go, that it “was a pleasure to be invited by His Excellency The President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to the private launch of Eko Atlantic.”

In what can be termed a reaction, the presidency, in a tweet by Bashir Ahmad, Buhari’s personal assistant (New Media) said Buhari and Campbell “only met at the Eko Atlantic City” and that Campbell wasn’t invited by the president.

Ahmad tweeted: “For the sake of clarity, President (Buhari) didn’t invite Ms. Naomi Campbell to any event during his 2-day visit to Lagos State. They only met at the Eko Atlantic City while Mr. President was touring the project, and she requested to take photos with him.”

UPDATE: Campbell has deleted her tweet above, and published another where she said she only met Buhari at Eko Atlantic City, and that she’s in Nigeria for Arise Fashion Week 2018. See the post here.

    Buhari’s government are confirmed liars. How can an uninvited guest be part of the president’s team shouldn’t that tell us that brain is paining these people. Abi, the security attached to the president are now handicapped or the official photos taken and splashed over the internet were sourced from Naomi’s phone. Fear God o. Today is a Friday and a really good one at that to lie…

    Why would Naomi leave her comfort zone just to take a picture with the president. Do you realise how much they would have to pay her to attend/ visit the country.

    First. Mom’s Family saga, now, Naomi Campbel saga.
    This means that the rest of the World does not have any clue what’s going on in the ZOO.
    IF THEY KNEW, THEY WOULD NOT BE CAUGHT DEAD WITH ILLITERATE VIRULENT ETHNIC BIGOT, AFRICA’S SHAME, MUHAMMADU BUHARI.
    I BELIEVE NAOMI CAMPBELL

    MLK family just got duped earlier this week, and now, Naomi Campbell.

    Lol…I think I believe buhari, he’s not a “social ” person, he probably doesn’t even know naomi . Naomi on the other hand loves to flirt with African leaders(Google it). So I m thinking maybe she took the picture to show off. You know how u’ll bump into a celebrity and want to take pix right? #justsaying. Y’ll should blv buhari for once.

    Naomi is Nigerian. The habit to post on social media and “overstate” your activity is on point. She can’t be left behind in the game ?

  20. Thanks

    March 31, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    they have forced her to Re write . He who has the dough will win. Naomi is a just a hustler and she will make a killing in Nigeria because we are celebrity obsessed
