Chidoka Denies Leading Attack Team Against Peter Obi

Former Aviation minister, Chief Osita Chidoka has denied allegations that he has been commissioned to lead an attack on hi fellow Anambra-born presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi.

Chidoka in a press statement signed by Comrade Ikechukwu Okafor, Head of
Chief Osita Chidoka Media Team said the allegation was untrue.

He said: “The attention of the Media Team of Chief Osita Chidoka OFR has been drawn to an unsigned write-up with the above caption.

“Ordinarily, we wouldn’t glorify an unsigned write-up with a reply but, the reply has to be done considering we are in the period of electioneering campaign for 2023 Presidential Election.

“We don’t know what the author of the piece hopes to achieve but we suspect that he used the good name of Osita Chidoka to give momentum to his nefarious goal of tarnishing Peter Obi’s name. His crude tactics of sharing unprintable and libellous allegations against Peter Obi using the attention-grabbing name of Osita Chidoka should be clear to any discerning reader. The writer’s aim is clear and our response is to expose his carefully disguised evil intention.”

The statement continued that: “Chief Chidoka, former Corps Marshall of FRSC is a politician known for his outspokenness and regular commentary on national issues. At no time, has he been known for negative rhetoric or mud-slinging. His campaign for the Governorship of Anambra state in 2017 stood out for its positive and issues-based messaging. His digital grassroots mobilisation is now a reference point as Nigerians embrace digital campaigning.

“Chief Chidoka’s robust online campaign and fundraising for the PDP candidate in the 2021 Anambra Governorship election is still fresh in the minds of many as an example of positive messaging.

“The UNLOCK NAIJA exponent does not and will never play politics of bitterness and acrimony.

“Sadly, the faceless personality behind this ingenious and flagrant denigration of the Labour Presidential candidate through this unsigned enemy action has garnered public attention by using Chidoka’s name as a clickbait.

“We appreciate the concern of friends and well-wishers of Chief Chidoka who have been reaching out to us in his Media Team. Please be rest assured that Chidoka will never descend to such levels in his politics. His engagements are public and guided by his convictions which he publicly espouses.

“We use this opportunity to remind the general public that we are in election season where all manner of political propaganda is deployed to ridicule and discredit perceived opponents. Be discerning and watchful.”
