Peter Obi is a 2023 presidential aspirant on the platform of PDP

Valentine Obienyem, media aide of the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has reacted to comment made by the campaign organisation of Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate.

Tinubu’s campaign, in a statement issued by his campaign media director, Bayo Onanuga, urged Obi to call his supporters over fake news.

He said the 2023 general election should be about issues that will advance the growth, progress, and stability of Nigeria.

He asked Obi to stop his supporters from “spreading lies, malice and denigrating other candidates”.

Reacting to Onanuga, Obi’s media aide Obienyem, said some of his opponents originated fake news, published them under false names and ascribed them to him or his supporters.

Obienyem said if supporters were mindful of this, some articles published in some newspapers against Obi would not have been published, including those with offensive titles.

“Nigerians know the truth and that such gimmicks used to deceive them would no longer work,” he added.
