APC Campaign Council knocks Obi on alleged false video


The All Progressives Congress campaign council has roundly condemned the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi for circulating ‘an offensive, hate-filled video’ in which he accused a non-existent ‘Tinubu’s Group’ of spreading a Whatsapp message calling on Yoruba not to vote for him.

In a statement by the spokesperson for the council Festus, Keyamo on Monday, the purported message, according to Obi, forewarned the Yoruba that a vote for Obi would be a vote for a seaport in South South and South East.

The statement denied existence of such group within the campaign council, insisting that all groups supporting the council are properly designated with specific function.

The statement read in part, “Firstly, we vehemently deny the existence of any of such “Tinubu group” that made and circulated such a message. All groups supporting the APC Presidential Candidate and his running-mate have clear designations with well-known promoters. In addition, it is only messages released by the APC Presidential Campaign Council that are officially authorized and for which we take responsibility.

“We challenge Mr. Peter Obi to reveal the source and name(s) behind that nebulous Whatsapp message.

“We wish to state that it is obvious Mr. Peter Obi deliberately concocted that message and circulated that offensive video himself as a campaign strategy in order to come across as a victim of some kind of ethnic agenda, whereas in truth, he is the real agent provocateur of an ethnic agenda.
