Peter Obi Condemns False Media Reports Aimed at Discrediting Him

Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, has decried what he described as an emerging pattern of fake media reports predicated on interviews and press remarks he never granted.

Obi said it is regrettable that the nation’s politics have sunken to an abysmal level where manipulation of the media space is now a trade.

However, the LP presidential candidate insisted he would continue to speak on topical national issues via recognized news and media outfits.

In a statement issued on his verified Twitter handle on Saturday, the former Anambra State governor maintained that he would not concern himself with cheap distractive trolls, saying his focus and that of the Obidient Movement would not derail from the original mission of creating a new Nigeria.

He wrote, “I have noticed with dismay, an emerging pattern where fake media reports and news items are predicated on interviews and press remarks I never granted.

“Two recent instances relate to my saying that I am looking forward to running for office in 2027 on a supposed Arise TV interview that never took place. The other is about my reaction to prospective appointees to the Federal Government. Both reports are bogus. Regrettably, our politics have sunken to this abysmal level where manipulation of the media space is now a trade.

“For me, I shall continue to speak on topical national issues via recognized news and media outfits. But I certainly will not concern myself with cheap distractive trolls. My focus and that of the Obidient Movement will not derail from the original mission of creating a new Nigeria which we believe is possible.
