The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has called on his opponent, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to warn his supporters against purveying fake news.
The Director of Media and Communications of the Tinubu Campaign Organisation(TCO), Bayo Onanuga has on behalf of the presidential flagbearer alleged that the supporters of Obi have been circulating fake news to the general public, causing reputational damage to the APC candidate.
The Informant247 observes that a report emerged on social media a few days ago, that the Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo forwarded a letter to Tinubu, asking him to withdraw his presidential candidate and support Peter Obi and take care of his health.
The President if Ghana had via his official Twitter handle, debunked the report, saying it is fake news.
“We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership and disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians,” Onanuga stated.
