Rivers Govt says Gov

Wike was impersonated in the audio leak where he threatened to kill an INEC official

This
morning, we heard the audio released by Sahara Reporters purported to
be Rivers state governor, Wike threatening to kill an INEC official. The
Rivers state government has reacted to this, saying Wike’s was
impersonated and blamed APC. Read the statement below…

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.

Signed

Dr Tam-George,
Commissioner for Information and Communication, Rivers State.
