2023: APC media team accuses PDP of sponsoring ARISE TV to embarrass Tinubu

The Media and Communication Directorates of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), led by Dele Alake and Bayo Onanuga, on Wednesday, said the Arise TV town hall debate is designed by Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of THISDAY and Arise News Television, Nduka Obaigbena, to embarrass Tinubu, the flag bearer of the APC.


The duo made the remark through a statement they jointly signed in response to Obaigbena’s latest comment, alleging that the Arise TV’s town hall meetings are sponsored by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


“In his first statement attacking us, Obaigbena craftily attempted to mis-characterise as an attack on free speech, our principled stand against his blackmail to have Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu appear on Arise TV and its PDP sponsored Town Hall meetings,” the statement reads.


The statement reads in part: “In the second statement, he was still adamant that our candidate must attend his town hall debate, despite our stance that our candidate is already executing another communications strategy to reach the most important target: the Nigerian voters.


“We repeat: We will not make our candidate available to validate a scheme which, in the light of unassailable information at our disposal, is nothing but a racket by the Arise TV owner, designed to embarrass our candidate.”
