Obanikoro Disclaims Audio Recording on Ekiti Elections

Our attention has been drawn to an audio recording released on Thursday by Sahara Reporters, an online news website. In the audio recording, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro is presented as having a conversation alongside current Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, Senator Iyiola Omisore amongst other names purportedly identified by Sahara Reporters as participants in the said meeting.

But these are the facts:

1. That Senator Obanikoro wishes to state categorically and emphatically that you will never find him anywhere in the world talking about rigging an election in favour of anyone. The context of the conversation being reported by Sahara Reporters has been deliberately concocted, manipulated and misrepresented to achieve a predetermined narrative. Nowhere in the purported recording did Senator Obanikoro mention directly or indirectly a plan to rig the Ekiti State elections as the Sahara Reporters narrative suggests.

2. That Senator Obanikoro’s team was approached by an agent of Sahara Reporters to pay for the doctored recording. Senator Obanikoro’s refusal to be blackmailed led to Sahara Reporters going ahead to publish the said recording.

3. That it is an open knowledge that Sahara Reporters is a paid mouthpiece of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) and as such cannot be taken seriously and credibly.

4. That the eventual timing of the release of the doctored audio coming on the eve of the ruling of the Osun State Election Petitions Tribunal makes it even more sinister. For all intents and purposes, it is a failed attempt to compromise the outcome of the Tribunal ruling and set the tone for public sympathy in the event of an unfavorable ruling.

5. Old habits die hard. The APC is known for its manipulative antics in the manufacturing of forged certificates, hacking, propaganda and now the doctoring of audio recordings.

6. That Dr. Kayode Fayemi and the APC have failed to explain how their gross unpopularity led to the loss of their wards and local governments to PDP’s Ayodele Fayose.

7. That there was a Tribunal set up for the Ekiti Election. Why was this audio recording not presented to that Tribunal? Having lost an election woefully and at the Election Petitions Tribunal, this is nothing short of a lame after-thought and a futile attempt to pervert the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians against the PDP in the coming general elections.

8. That the role the Nigerian Army played in safeguarding the elections in Ekiti and Osun States remains commendable, to general acclaim, locally and internationally.

9. The APC and their cronies are the ones known for anti-democratic tendencies. Where was Sahara Reporters when free and fair local government elections were annulled by the APC in Lagos State?

10. That beyond this statement, Senator Obanikoro will not dignify the immoral construct of the APC through its hired media platforms with any further response. Senator Obanikoro refuses to be distracted by the failed antics of the APC and is focusing on the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan.

11. That Senator Obanikoro is initiating legal action against Sahara Reporters in New York and Nigeria for defamation of character.

Good response. We know Sahara reporters and their lies. If they had it all this while,why didn't they publish it after the election.

This is a cheap blackmail and people should be very careful of what they read on the internet. APC is a very desperate party with desperate motives.

They kill, they manipulate, arm twist, forge, rig etc just to get power and money.

Even fayemi admitted he lost. The people of ekiti both old, young and youth rejoiced at the exit of fayemi.

A man that sleeps on a 100 million naira bed in ekiti is now claiming to be rigged out

A million lai mohammed can not change our opinion on apc

This part doesn't make sense.. Blackmail is still illegal in Nigeria so why didn't Senator Obanikoro’s team report the matter to the authorities?

Thank God that Obanikoro has the decorum to at least acknowledge that a conversation did take place. Fayose has totally denied it

It is now up to Obanikoro to correct the so called misrepresentations by Sahara Reporters.

These are excerpts of his comments on the tape

1. Am not here for tea party, am on a special assignment by the President.”
2. “Then that Daramola (APC Fayemi Campaign Manager) I want him picked up in the
morning!”
3. “Look here, you can’t get promotion without me sitting on top of your military council. If I
am a happy man tomorrow night, the sky is your limit”


He should tell Nigerians what he meant by his comments.

I don't expect less from the born-liar and thug.

I was only surprised that he has failed to explain certain things captured by the audio recording

1. Was there any conversation between him and the Brig. General?

2. Was there any man named Captain Sagir Koli

3. Was Brig general Momoh deployed for Osun poll or not

4. Was Fayose captured or not in the audio recording?

5. Is there truly a brother of Captain Koli that was unlawfully detained

6. The recording exposed more than one personality and all the trash Obanikoro posted was only pointing accusing fingers to APC and Tribunal. Was APC at the meeting with them on that fateful day?

7. In all the points stated by Obanikoro, it has clearly shown that their bubbles have been bursted and I hope this remain in Public discussion domain until we all carefully and watchfully cast and protect our vote come Feb. 14.

we are tired of this kind of government when after an officer has been caught red handed committing crime, the next thing is a speech read by someone else that he didnt commit the crime blah blah, and its all over, nigerians will forget and go to sleep.

You don't expect him to admit, I knew it was outright lies when they said Saharareporters demanded for money. The Yele Sowore I know can never be bought for any amount. Let them keep denying, it is their trademark, telling lies even after being caught red-handed.

Atleast Obanikoro did not say the meeting did not hold like his senior agbero of a friend Fayose.

Now let's wait for the gospel according to Omisore.

Maybe he will claim he was no where near Ekiti on that day and it was juju that was used to put his voice on the recording.

Awon agbaya ole oshi!!!

In nigeria, the truth is scarce. By the time they confuse you, you wont even know what to believe.

But this number two is a familiar line when you catch these politicians. They ll say you wanted to collect money from them, they refused and you went public. Cheap line
