Leaked audio: Peter Obi has more questions to answer - Lai Mohammed


The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has stated that the Labour Party's Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, has more questions to answer regarding the alleged phone conversation between him and the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, which went viral last week.

Remember how the recording went viral on social media with the assumption that it was a chat between Obi and Oyedepo? 

In the audio clip, the man claiming to be Obi asks the other man claiming to be Oyedepo to assist him garner votes from the South West and claims that the 2023 election is a "religious war."

Today, April 11, a news conference was held in London. Mohammed pressed Obi to explain what he meant when he claimed the leaked dialogue was a hoax.

“I need to draw the attention of Nigerians to the recent leaked audio of conversation between the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and the cleric. The leaked audio rattled Nigerians because we heard Obi pleading with the cleric to interfere on his behalf to convince Christians that this is a religious war and they should support him. In the aftermath of the leaked audio, Obi came out to say that it was a fake, doctored audio call.

If it is fake, it means it never took place. But if it is doctored, it means there was that conversation but it was manipulated. Obi needs to come out and make the clarification on whether the conversation did not take place or it took place, but it was doctored.

If it was doctored, which part of it was doctored? Is it the beginning, the middle or the end or is it the ‘Yes Daddy’ part of it, or where he said it was a religious war?”he said

The Minister went on to say that the leaked phone call confirmed suspicions that the Peter Obi campaign was "based on religion and ethnicity."
