Obi-Datti’s media office has called on his supporters to ignore and treat as a beating any doctored and falsified articles about Labor Party (LP) presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi, stating they were still focused on winning back the country and rebuild it.
The media team in a statement at the weekend recalled the fake news spawned in the LP flag-bearer that intrigued the international media to wonder why some people are dismayed by bright ideas trying to get out of Nigeria.
“Recently in the South East, some mercenaries recorded a fake video of unknown gunmen intending to punish a man for allegedly wearing a Peter Obi T-shirt; in fact, it was a polo shirt of Peter Mba of the Enugu State PDP.
“The goal of the creator of the video was to portray Peter Obi as unwanted in his region and to scare his followers, which is completely false. The fake video appeared apparently to counter rousing Labor Party rallies in the two southeastern states of Anambra and Enugu.
“Also on Friday, as the Obidient movement shut down Jos over Obi’s arrival, detractors made up another video of someone claiming to be an Obidient complaining about the lack of money for the mobilization.”
According to the media team, the video was doctored to counter the organic nature of Obi’s rallies and make them look like the rented crowds of the other parties.
“When the eagle landed on the Plateau, the true members of the Obidient movement took to the space and showed the organic nature of their support.
“These frustrated opponents who don’t know how to stop Obi’s political acceleration are bringing to light some comments from Obi’s opponents in previous election campaigns and making it seem new.” He explained
The Obi-Datti Media Office vowed to continue exposing his hoaxes which have failed miserably as the LP banner bearer candidate has proven to be the best man for the job, having possessed all the necessary ingredients for the leadership missing from our politics: character, ability , competence and capabilities.
“Therefore, we remind everyone that Cap Fitting Head Peter Obi is seeking the mandate of the Nigerian people to serve and provide what has been lacking in our country and comes proudly with attractive and satisfying features embedded. in his lifestyle and background in his public and private life,” he said.
