Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate says the opposition political parties have adopted a desperate “negative strategy” of spreading fake news ahead of the 2023 election campaign.
In a series of tweets on his Twitter page on Thursday, he accused the opposition of spreading misinformation on both traditional and social media platforms and blaming it on LP.
However, the former Anambra State governor insisted that his party would remain resolute and committed to an issue-based campaign.
Obi said, “As we approach the official kick-off of the 2023 election campaign, it has become evident that the opposition has 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 of same. 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.”
