Fake News: Political parties must apply caution during campaigns- Abu-Hamisu


The Tinubu Campaign Organisation TCO has appealed to the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party Peter Obi, to call his supporters to order and allow the general election circle to be about issues that will advance the growth, progress and stability of Nigeria.

In a statement by its Director of Media and Communications, Bayo Onanuga, the TCO admonished the LP presidential candidate to get his supporters to desist from spreading lies about other candidates, especially the presidential candidate of the All-Progressives Congress APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Onanuga explained  that the TCO saw the need to appeal to Obi to rein in his supporters after investigating the origin of the fake report claiming that the Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo wrote a letter to Ahmed Tinubu, asking him to support Peter Obi and take care of his health.

The Ghanaian President had through his official Twitter account vehemently debunked the fake news as a product of deliberate mischief with the intent to deceive the public.
