The media aide to Mr Peter Obi, Valentine Obienyem has revealed that the reported conversation between the Labour Party presidential contender and founder of Living Faith Church, David Oyedepo was leaked by whom he described as ‘our Nnewi prodigal brother’.
Daily Post reported that in the audio clip, Obi seemed to be 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.
However, Obi’s media aide posted on his Facebook page on Sunday stating that “the badly doctored conservation with Bishop Oyedepo released by our Nnewi prodigal brother is the much they have discovered so far.
“They edited out the Muslim-Muslim ticket that led to the discussion, where Obi said that in a society like ours, religious balancing was a necessary consideration and that their recklessness had made Christians to assume it was a religious war.”
