The Federal Government of Nigeria has challenged the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, to clarify his position on a leaked audio of the conversation he purportedly had with Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide.
The audio, as released by an online newspaper, was an alleged conversation between Obi and Oyedepo.
Addressing the media on Monday in London, Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, called on Obi to clarify what he meant by saying the leaked conversation was “a fake doctored audio call.”
Mohammed said: “If it’s fake, it means it never took place. But if it’s doctored, it means there was that conversation, but it was manipulated.
“[Peter] Obi needs to come out and make the clarification on whether the conversation didn’t 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?”
