Advocacy for Advancement of Peace and Harmony in Africa Initiative (ADAPHAI) has called on 2023 presidential candidates and political gladiators to instruct their supporters to quickly desist from the political anomaly and begin genuine campaigns for the purpose of peace.

This is as the civic organisation raised alarm over the alleged campaign strategy of supporters of Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, adding that fake news is a potent factor of instability and chaos.

The group accused Peter Obi’s supporters of deploying crude propaganda and naked lies as a preferred style of campaign, which is capable of dragging Nigeria to unimaginable crisis and upheavals.

ADAPHAI in a tweet on Wednesday, cited fake news about the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo- Addo, saying the narrative was a spurious attempt at raising the bar of the popularity of their candidate. “This is indeed ridiculous and embarrassing.”

There was a post trending on social media that the Ghana President was alleged to have written to the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, to “give Peter Obi a chance and seek treatment for his health”.

Akufo-Addo described the news as “completely false and mischievous, with no iota of truth whatsoever in it. I have written no such letter to the APC leader, and it will not occur to me to do so. Ghana and Nigeria boast of decades of cordial, strong and brotherly relations, and I am not going to be the one to interfere in the internal affairs and politics of Nigeria.”

The tweet read, “The recent development in our polity, towards the 2023 presidential election, in which supporters of the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi are constantly deploying crude propaganda and naked lies as the preferred style of campaign is utterly dangerous and scary, capable of dragging Nigeria to unimaginable crisis and upheavals.

“The latest version of this calumny was the lies they told about President of Ghana, Nana Akufo- Addo, with spurious intent of raising the bar of the popularity of their candidate. This is indeed ridiculous and embarrassing.

“As we all know that fake news is a potent factor of instability and chaos, we urge political gladiators and their supporters to quickly desist from this political anomaly and start to be real and genuine in their campaigns for the purpose of peace,” ADAPHAI noted. Continue Reading
