These photos on Facebook and Twitter, supposedly of Nigerian opposition politician Peter Obi with French President Emmanuel Macron, are ALTERED.

The authors claim the images were taken at the June 2023 Paris summit.

The images were published after the Paris 22–23 June 2023 Summit for A New Global Financing Pact. The summit’s agenda was to develop financial solutions to tackle global challenges such as poverty and climate change.

We performed a Google reverse image search to authenticate the validity of the photos and the results were that the photos had been edited.
