Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi, has reacted to the purported conversational audio clip between him and Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of Living Faith Church, dismissing it as fake.

Obi has, therefore, asked his legal team to take appropriate legal actions against the Peoples Gazette and others, who allegedly concocted the audio and released it on the social media.


In a series of tweets on his Twitter handle on Wednesday night, Obi said the present attempts by the APC as a party and the APC led-government through some government officials and agencies to divert attention from the blatantly stolen mandate was “unfortunate and sad.”

Persecondnews recalls that a leaked audio call between Obi and Oyedepo had gone viral on the social media last week with Obi purportedly saying the 2023 presidential election is a “religious war” with the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.

“These have come and continued to manifest in different ways, such as the malicious accusation of the Minister of Information, Mr Lai Mohammed, the circulation of a fake doctored audio call, and a pressure on me to leave the country.

“Let me reiterate that the audio call being circulated is fake, and at no time throughout the campaign and now did I ever say, think, or even imply that the 2023 election is, or was a religious war,” Obi said.

The LP candidate in the 2023 poll said he would continue to express appreciation to all Nigerians, especially the youths and the Obidients for remaining focused on the core mission of a New Nigeria that is possible even after the February 25, 2023 presidential election.

He tweeted: “Before, during, and after the campaign, it is on record that I have maintained my commitment and focus on issue-based campaign about a New Nigeria that is possible, a shift of emphasis from consumption to production, a New Nigeria characterized by inclusion, justice, equity, fairness, and prosperity.

“I repeatedly stated that no one should vote for me based on tribe or religion, but rather on the assessment of character, competence, capacity, credibility, and compassion that can be trusted to create a New Nigeria.”

Obi, however expressed worry about what he called the attempts to manipulate Nigerians, describing it as very sad and wicked.

“While we call on all concerned Nigerians and the International Community to implore the APC and the APC Led-government to stop their nasty attacks, my focus and commitment to lawfully and peacefully retrieve our mandate to secure and unite our nation, take Nigeria from consumption to production, pull millions of Nigerians out of multidimensional poverty especially in the North, and jumpstart prosperity through agricultural, industrial, and technological revolution remain unchanged.

“Elections are over, and we are in court to retrieve our stolen mandate. Let me reiterate that we are doing so through all lawful and peaceful options in line with our legal system and constitution.

“And I continue to implore all Nigerians to remain peaceful and law abiding,” Obi, who came third in the poll, said.

Persecondnews reported that APC’s Bola Tinubu had been declared winner with PDP’s Atiku Abubakar trailing.
