Obi Replies Tinubu: You Should’ve Warned Your Supporters Not To Attack Me If You Wanted Issue-Based Campaign.
Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate, has responded to the call for an issue-based campaign by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, his All Progressives Congress (APC) counterpart.
Tinubu’s campaign organization had on Wednesday asked Obi to caution his supporters against spreading lies and denigrating its candidates.
Bayo Onanuga, the director of media and communications of the campaign, urged Obi and other presidential aspirants to desist from mudslinging and focus their campaigns on issues of good governance.
Onanuga, without providing evidence, accused Obi’s supporters of faking a letter attributed to Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, allegedly asking Tinubu to support Obi’s presidential bid and take care of his health.
“We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership. He should disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians,” he had said.
But re-joining, Obi’s media adviser, Valentine Obienyem, said the Labour Party presidential candidate had always been an advocate for campaigns that are centered on important issues rather than name calling or trivial issues.
