Leaked audio with Oyedepo: Peter Obi has more questions to answer – Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has more questions to answer on the purported telephone conversation allegedly between him and the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, that went viral last week.


Recall that the audio made the rounds on social media with claims that it was a conversation between Obi and Oyedepo. In the audio recording, the man alleged to be Obi asked the other person alleged to be Oyedepo, to help gather votes from the South West for him and that the 2023 election is a ‘’religious war”.


At a press briefing in London today April 11. Mohammed challenged Obi to clarify what he meant when he said the leaked conversation was fake.


“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 added that the leaked phone conversation corroborated claims that the Peter Obi campaign was “based on religion and ethnicity.”
