Peter Obi’s Call With Oyedepo Is Real, We'll Protect Our Source - Peoples Gazette

Peter Obi Reacts To Alleged Leaked Conversation With Bishop Oyedepo

by Victor Ndubuisi

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate for 2023, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of funding propaganda to destroy him.

Obi said this in response to a purported audio recording of a conversation between himself and Bishop David Oyedepo, Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church.

He accused the APC of continuing to support fake news and misinformation.

According to the trending audio, Obi asked Bishop Oyedepo to mobilize church support for him on the eve of the presidential election.


Nevertheless, in a statement issued by the Head of Obi Datti Media Office, Diran Onifade, in Abuja on Sunday in response to the alleged leaked audio chat, the LP presidential candidate stated that the mischief intended by those behind the tape won’t work.

In denying the audio, Obi stated that the APC is attempting to keep power by disseminating false audio files on him.

The former Anambra State Governor, however, stated that he is not discouraged and is committed to reclaiming his mandate from Nigerians through constitutional methods.

Unlike the APC, which parades false credentials and even fake Bishops, the presidential contender argued that the Labour Party has always urged Nigerians not to vote along ethnic, religious, or other emotive lines.

He said, “It appears the All Progressives Congress’ desperation to grab and retain power by foul means has refused to go away more than a month after they have grabbed the election as they planned.

“While we are toeing the constitutional path to retrieve our mandate, those who have truncated the wishes of the majority of Nigerians have recoursed to mischief and endless subterfuge to continue to hold on to what they know does not belong to them.


“From the show of shame in Portharcourt to the drama in the Ibom Air aircraft, both of which they contrived, they have now moved to the circulation of a deep fake audio file aimed at promoting religious tension in the country.

“All these are meant to serve no other purpose than egregious mischief aimed at demarketing Peter Obi. If the goal is to create a credibility problem, the ploy has failed woefully.

“Peter Obi has long been on record as the only presidential candidate who has urged the Nigerian electorate not to vote for him on the basis of religion or tribe .

“We will therefore like to advice our beloved Nigerian people to remain focused on the task to take back the mandate we know was freely given to Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed through legitimate means.

“That is more important than to expect those who ran election on forged credentials and even fake Bishops to stop faking. They cannot stop being fraudulent because that is who they are.”
