The Obi-Datti Media Office claimed to be aware of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s (APC) faltering presidential campaign’s new focus, which is the planned launch of a multi-million naira media campaign called “Killer Punch” aimed at spreading false information about Labour Party Presidential candidate Mr. Peter Obi.
The campaign of Tinubu’s media handlers, led by the trio of Femi Fani-Kayode, Festus Keyamo, SAN, and Adamu Garba, is scheduled to release a film they are calling “Killer Punch” after failing in all of their attempts to win the election on February 25.
They have already been sharing clips from the documentary on social media, but they have received no attention because people are aware of their desperate attempts to drag Peter Obi down.
According to a statement by Diran Onifade, Head of Media, Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council, these documentaries of lies and falsehood, which they have fabricated, attempt to portray Mr. Obi as a drug peddler, killer and sexual pervert among other innuendos in their fertile imagination.
Already, the Obi-Datti Media Office is aware, that they are a product of a strategy session between Tinubu and selected members of his media team, where Tinubu reportedly accused his media handlers of not “punching to knock out” and not doing enough, to halt Obi’s unprecedented progress.
He, therefore demanded more wild propaganda from them, against his opponents, especially Obi, to throw anything at the opponents to win, regardless of ethics or morality.
We will continue to be amused by the desperation, to search for faults in the Presidential front runner, and their apparent frustration, of not finding any.
The LP standard bearer has remained the most fact-checked, among the four top Presidential candidates, for the obvious reasons, that he is the only one running an issues-driven campaign, and therefore provoking intellectual conversations, and gaining more supporters, daily, nationwide.
But as election day draws nearer, and the reality of their impending defeat heightens, their anger and frustration, are also on the rise.
This instruction of a faltering Presidential candidate to his media team, to bring down the Labour Party flag bearer at all costs, is a clear indication of their hopelessness.
We at the Obi-Datti Media Campaign Office have all the details of their machinations, including some anti-Obi persons, already contacted for a role in the so-called ‘Killer Punch’ documentary’, and also the release of N500m for this failed smear campaign.
International media recently did a comprehensive check on the fake news generated by the LP flag bearer, which highlighted designs to cast aspersions on this new awakening, that beckons from Nigeria, and indeed Africa.
Just a few weeks ago, in the South East, some hirelings had recorded a fake video, where some gunmen pretended to be punishing a man for wearing a Peter Obi T-shirt, while the image was that of a PDP candidate, Peter Mbah, but the doctored video was misrepresented to refer to Peter Obi.
Another sponsored video is also going around, dishing out libelous and unsubstantiated lies against Obi’s outstanding eight-year tenure as Governor of Anambra State.
These will not be the last of the despicable media lies and falsehoods.
Our mission this day is to alert and warn discerning minds, especially those desirous to see a new Nigeria emerge through Peter Obi, to ignore and treat as thrash any doctored and faked media items on Obi.
The Obi-Datti Media Office will continue to expose their deceptive actions which have roundly failed since our candidate has demonstrated unequivocally that he is the best man for the job.
In all presentations, assessments, and polls, he has clearly outclassed his peers, in the required character, capacity, competence, and capabilities, to provide a new direction of change and leadership, as desired by the people.
We assure the Nigerian people and our supporters in Nigeria and globally, of our candidate’s unflinching focus on this month’s election and the impossibility of any distraction, regardless of all machinations.
Onifade said “our candidate, his deputy, and all in the Obidient Movement are too busy in this rescue mission, to give attention to worthless lies and their equally cheap purveyors.
“The elections are just a few weeks away As Obi-Datti is growing by each second, let’s keep working hard, for the victory that will change our Country, for good.”
