The Director of Strategic Communications of the Buhari 2019 Campaign Organisation, Festus Keyamo (SAN), has been bashed on Twitter after he posted a photo of a tree growing on a rail track in Gaza, in the disputed area between Israel and Palestine, and passed it off as Nigeria.

He may this known on Twitter on Sunday.

He captioned the photo: This is how trees grew in-between rail tracks between 1999 and 2015. Those were the years of ‘Initiation and Started’, when they swallowed all the money but never completed. Now, this is the ‘Completion Era’ as the tracks are beginning to roar back to life.

But some Twitter users decided to do a Google image search and discovered that the photo was first posted online on October 5 by a Chadi Faraj in Gaza and retweeted by A Paulikevich on October 6.

Many commentators then attacked Keyamo for lying and attempting to deceive Nigerians.

  1. Keyamo did not say the rail with tree was in Nigeria. He only used the picture as a symbolic treat. This was a pictorial image depicting the rails under PDP.
