Rivers Govt. Denies Audio Recording On Governor Wike

The Rivers State Government has denied an audio recording released by online portal- SaharaReporters  alleged to be that of Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike as a sick technological fabrication.

In the audio released by the SaharaReporters a voice was purportedly of that  of Rivers governor, Nyesome Wike in a telephone conversation  with supposed Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) officials on their help to right the just concluded senatorial elections in the state

In a statement by the Commissioner of Information, Austin Tam-George, the government said that the Governor had no contact with any INEC official.

The statement reads: “We categorically deny these latest allegations as a sick fabrication, an outright lie.

“Governor Wike never made any contact with INEC officials, in person or by telephone.

“ 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 mainly 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.”
