Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has accused his opponents of deliberately creating misinformation on social media and attributing it to him and his party.
Obi, who took to his twitter account to make the observation yesterday, noted that he remained focused on issue-based campaigns and not deterred by such antics.
He said, “As we approach the official kick off of the 2023 election campaign, it has become evident that the opposition have adopted a negative strategy of trolling and insinuating fake news and misinformation in the social media space and blaming the Labour Party, its presidential candidate and their supporters.
“We remain resolute in our commitment to an issue-based and clean campaign.
“We will also rebuff all such ploys of deceit and calumny meant to create disaffection among Nigeria’s voting population, who desire credible leadership change.”
