Tinubu Campaign Team Asks Police To Probe Forged INEC Document To Float Fake News

The Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked Nigeria police to investigate forged document of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with which fake news about the party’s Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was churned out to Nigerians.
In a statement today, November 13, Director of media and publicity for the Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga said: “we also call on the police to investigate the circulation of the forged INEC statement and serve justice to those responsible.”
He said that the party’s Presidential candidate had consistently said that he will make this campaign about issues that affect the lives of Nigerians and how to proffer workable and enduring solutions that will improve quality of life of our people who are looking for leaders at all levels to improve their lives and sow them seeds of prosperity in our country.
“He has demonstrated this resolve by publishing an 80-page manifesto tagged Action Plan for a Better Nigeria, which he has been selling to strategic sectoral groups in the country.
“We had hoped anyone aspiring to lead our country at this time will be a natural subscriber to this noble and higher goal.
“It is clear the opposition parties and purveyors of fake news have other negative ideas: they want to make this election cycle more about muckraking and mudslinging.
“While we want to stay above the fray and stand by our commitment to inspire our people and restore their faith and confidence in the immense goodness and greatness of our country, we want to serve  notice to all the agents of disinformation and their collaborating media platforms, that our campaign organisation stands ready to confront and fight all libellous and defamatory  publications  against Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We shall no longer allow the prevailing recklessness and utter disregard for professional judgment to continue unchallenged.”
Onanuga said that the APC Presidential Campaign Council is not surprised by the antics of the sinking opposition parties, saying: “what we found shocking was how quickly some compromised media organisations gulped the falsehood, hook, line and sinker, without attempting to verify.
“We understand why they did so: the forgery and its narrative fit their mindset of throwing overboard every known virtue of ethical journalism and professionalism, as they work in cahoot with the opposition to defame Asiwaju Tinubu.
“This inglorious path has been taken before since 2003 and in the run-up to the primaries of the ruling APC that produced Asiwaju Tinubu as the presidential torch bearer. Those who took this damned path of infamy lost their bet because Asiwaju Tinubu stands rock solid and indestructible.”
