CLAIM: Bola Ahmed Tinubu is on the ballot for the Osun Governorship Election

VERDICT: False

CONTEXT: A screenshot was spotted as posted by a Twitter user on July 15th, 2022, insinuating that the APC 2023 Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is on the ballot for the Osun 2022 Gubernatorial Election.

VERIFICATION: Our fact-checkers looked into the claim and can verify that the incumbent Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is the party’s accredited candidate for the Osun 2022 Governorship Election. The national leader of the All-Progressive Congress APC, Bola Tinubu on January 10th, 2022 formally declared his intention to contest the 2023 Presidential election under the platform of the APC.

CONCLUSION: CDD fact-checkers can confirm that the claim is misleading. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections is not on the ballot for the Osun 2022 Gubernatorial election.
