Peter Obi denies leaked audio – The controversy surrounding the leaked audio conversation between Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, and Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church Worldwide has taken a new turn as the federal government reacts to the matter. After days of silence, the government has finally spoken out, maintaining that Obi has more questions to answer regarding the leaked audio conversation.
At a press briefing in London, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, challenged Obi to clarify what he meant by saying “The leaked conversation was fake.” The minister said that the leaked audio had corroborated the position that Obi’s electioneering campaign was based on religion and ethnicity.

This statement has sparked mixed reactions from various quarters. Elder statesman and leader of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), Edwin Clark, has called for the arrest and prosecution of the minister of information and culture, describing his job as disappointing. Meanwhile, the Global Network for Sustainable Development (GNSD) has described the controversy as unnecessary.
It is unfortunate that the leaked audio has become a major talking point in the country’s political discourse. While some have used it as a tool to discredit Obi’s campaign, others have accused the federal government of spreading fake news. Whatever the case may be, it is important to remember that Nigeria is a diverse country with people of different religions and ethnicities. As such, politicians must be careful with their words and actions to avoid inflaming tensions.
It is also important to note that spreading fake news or engaging in hate speech is a criminal offence in Nigeria. As we approach the elections, it is essential that all political actors conduct themselves in a manner that promotes peace and unity. The government, on its part, must ensure that those who spread fake news are held accountable for their actions.
In conclusion, it is crucial for all Nigerians to be vigilant and avoid being misled by fake news or hate speech. We must strive to promote unity and peaceful coexistence in our country, regardless of our differences. Only then can we build a strong and prosperous nation that we can all be proud of.
