Obanikoro, who was accused of participating in the
rigging as well, has also denied the allegation.

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has denied
allegations that he rigged the June 2014 governorship
election which brought him into office.
Former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu
Obanikoro , who was accused of participating in the
rigging as well, has also denied the allegation.
“I have not heard the recording but there is nowhere in
the world you will find me talking about rigging an
election,” Obanikoro said during a radio interview on
Rhythm 93.7.
Fayose responded to the allegation via a statement
released today, February 6. It reads:
“Nigerians should be reminded of how the APC people
lied in 2007 that they recorded how the governorship
election was rigged even in the palace of the Ewi of
Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe, but the party could not
produce a single photo evidence at the tribunal because
their plans to do what is know as Morphing and
Syncing was exposed.”
“Nigerians should also be reminded of the existence of
a technology called speech software, which is good at
reproducing the sounds, inflections and intonations of a
human voice.”
“There are softwares that can re-create voices and even
bring the voices of long-dead notable persons back to
life. There are softwares that can turn printed text into
synthesized speech, making it possible for anyone to
use recordings of a person’s voice to utter new things
that the person never said. One of such softwares is
called ‘Natural Voices.’”
“The APC that we all know is a party of crooks, who
are capable of doing anything, no matter how criminal
to achieve their aim.”
“They tried all tricks to manipulate the election and
failed. Even after wining the election, they tried to
prevent Fayose from assuming office but failed.”
“Now it is a fake audio clip, which is obviously targeted
at the next week presidential election.”
“Another question that should be asked by discerning
minds is; if indeed such a meeting took place, could
any of those purported to be present at the meeting
have recorded the conversation and leaked it to the
APC? Or was the supposed secret meeting held in the
public such that it was possible for the conversations
to be recorded?”
“Nigerians, especially the people of Ekiti who
overwhelmingly voted Fayose as their governor should
therefore ignore this new fabricated lie coming from the
APC.”
Sahara Reporters released the audio recording, which
also allegedly features the Minister for Police Affairs,
Caleb Olubolade, Brigadier General Aliyu Momoh, Chris
Uba and one Honorable Abdulkareem, on February 5.
