The controversy surrounding the widely reported audio leakage between the duo is not yet over: the Federal Government has stated Mr. Peter Obi, Labour Party candidate in the February 25, 2023 Presidential election yet has more questions to answer on the leaked audio involving him and Bishop David Oyedepo, Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide.

After days of silence on the leakage of the audio conversation derisively tagged, ‘Yes Daddy’, on several social media platforms, Mr. Obi said the audio was fake, and accused the Federal Government of spreading lies against him.

Obi should prove audio is ‘fake’, or conversation real but ‘doctored’ -Mohammed

In challenging Obi to tell Nigerians the whole truth, however, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Honourable Minister for Information and Culture, at a media  briefing in London, United Kingdom (UK), asked Obi to clarify what he meant by saying the leaked conversation was fake.

Mohammed stated: “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.”

The Minister also told reporters: “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.

He further quipped: “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?”

Mohammed declared, that  the leaked audio between Obi and Bishop Oyedepo had corroborated the position that the former’s presidential electioneering was based on religion and ethnicity.
