The Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi has been called out and accused of lying by the special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari after a video of him surfaced on social media, Obi claimed the Buhari-led administration has no agreement with Siemens on power generation.

Reacting to the viral video on Twitter, the special Assistant to President Buhari, Tolu Ogunlesi described Obi’s sttaement as another grievous untruth.

With all due respect, this is yet another grievous untruth, and must not be allowed to go unchallenged.

NigeriaGov is awaiting the delivery of 10 Mobile Transformers and 10 Mobile Substations, from Siemens, under the first phase of the Presidential Power Initiative #PPInigeria. 

For someone to claim they were told this, by the implementing firm – is a cheap lie, and also very easy to fact-check. 

Someone needs to pay more attention to #PPInigeria news – because all of these things are being duly reported.

Here’s the video. Just imagine this. And the people listening are gobbling up the fabricated populist claptrap and clapping.
