ABUJA – Twitter was on Monday set on fire following a video which promotes Peter Obi, Labour Party presidential candidate shared by Mr. Bayo Onanuga, head of media of the campaign team of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.
Onanuga who shared the tweet, “PETER OBI EXPOSED!!! Finally, Northerners who lived in Anambra while he was governor speak up.
“The man is not who some of you say he is, The picture in 2nd slide confirms what they said here,” thought he was putting a dent on his opponents before the northern voters.
However, unknown to Mr. Onanuga, the video is actually promoting Peter Obi.
In the video, northerners in Anambra State confessed that during Obi’s tenure as the governor of Anambra State, he always identifies with them, celebrates their events and fetes them after their fasting.
Without doing due diligence, Mr. Onanuga thinking that the video was demarketing Obi quoted the tweet and said: “We have said it countless times, Peter Obi is not who his supporters claim he is.
The post by Tinubu’s henchman isn’t going down without reactions as tweeps are taking turn to mock Onanuga.
Below are some reactions to the post:

@damilolami: “Sir, you are not a good media strategist. You are using the last minute to amplify another candidate when you should be marketing yours and demarketing your main opposition, Atiku who is having a free drive.”
@gregkatas: “The video says all the prejudice against Peter Obi is false. The man loved muslim and attended all their events while supporting them.
