Rivers Re-run: Wike reacts to incriminating audio tape, blames APC by okpismart1(: 4:07 pm On Dec 16, 2016
The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has reacted to an audio yesterday released by Sahara Reporters where he purportedly threatened to kill an INEC official.
In a statement signed Dr Tam-George, Commissioner for Information and Communication, Rivers State Wike said he was impersonated and blamed APC for the act.
The statement reads: “The attention of the Rivers State Government has been drawn to a publication by SaharaReporters, alleging that Governor Nyesom Wike had illicit contacts with officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in the run up to the rerun elections, on the 10th of December 2016 in Rivers State.“We categorically deny these latest allegations as a sick fabrication, and an outright lie. Governor Wike never made any contact with INEC officials, in person or by telephone. Saharareporters.com is the online propaganda bullhorn of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
“Their publications are typically false, and the writers are professional hawkers of fiction. No one would have thought that the APC and its cowardly media allies would resort to an audio impersonation of Governor Nyesom Wike, using a voice changer technology. The voice changer technology is often used by teenagers especially in South Korea and Japan to launch innocent technological pranks at each other, mainly for laughs.
“The use of such a technology to blackmail a governor is a new criminal low for the APC, a party already widely discredited for its addiction to falsehood. The APC and Saharareporters are inmates in the prison of their own lies. We reject the latest blackmail by the APC.”
