The camp of the 2023 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday reacted to the leaked conversation between the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi and Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith church.
The camp said the conversation in the leaked audio was highly condemnable.
Atiku’s spokesman, Daniel Bwala, said the content of the leaked audio has nothing to do with the petition at the presidential tribunal.
In a tweet, Bwala wrote: “The conversation in the audio leaked by (Only God and time will tell) is highly condemnable.
“But it has nothing to do with the quality or otherwise of his petition at the presidential tribunal. The grounds for the petition are in Section 134 of the EA, not the audio.”
In the leaked audio clip, Obi could be heard urging Oyedepo to encourage Christians to vote for him.
“Daddy, I need you to speak to your people in the South-West and Kwara, the Christians in the South-West and Kwara. This is a religious war,” Obi apparently said in the trending audio.
But, Obi’s Media Aide, Valentine Obienyem, said the leaked audio conversation between his principal and Oyedepo was edited out of context.
