CorrectNG reported on Wednesday that the All Progressives Congress (APC), presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has urged Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), to caution his supporters against propagating falsehoods about him.
Vanguard reports that he spoke through the Director Media and Communications, Tinubu Campaign Organisation, Bayo Onanuga, warning that “falsehood and disinformation will not win elections.”
The statement follows a report alleging that Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo asked Tinubu via a letter to support Peter Obi and focus on his health.
But Akufo-Addo debunked the report, and revealed that no such letter emanated from him or his office.
“I have written no such letter to the APC leader, and it will not occur to me to do so. Ghana and Nigeria boast of decades of cordial, strong and brotherly relations, and I am not going to be the one to interfere in the internal affairs and politics of Nigeria,” he tweeted on Tuesday.
However, according to the statement by Onanuga, Obi’s supporters were linked to the report as uncovered by content analysis.
“The Tinubu Campaign Organisation has appealed to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi to call his supporters to order and to allow this election circle to be about issues that will advance the growth, progress and stability of Nigeria,” the statement said in part.
