Director-general of Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation Doyin Okupe on Sunday debunked a photo circulated as that of Peter Obi’s son.
The photo shows a man wearing a red facemask and a shirt with the Biafran colours stepping on the Nigerian flag.
The caption claims he is Mr Obi’s son. “This is Peter Obi’s son, the IPOB in them is further confirmed by the clothes he wear and matching on our green white green flag and the same father is campaigning to rule Nigeria?” The caption read.
Reacting to this, Okupe said on Twitter that the photo is being shared in the north to spoil Obi’s chances in the region ahead of the 2023 polls.
He said, “THIS IS NOT PETER OBI’S SON. NO AMOUNT OF FALSEHOOD WILL DAMPEN THE CURRENT WAVE OF SUPPO FOR PETER OBI.
“See what they’re sharing in the north to scare people from Peter Obi.”
Meanwhile, Obi has urged his supporters to respect the views of others in the wake of allegations that they are vile towards opposing sides.
