The Rivers State government has descended heavily on the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Sahara Reporters over the leaked audio recording of Gov Nyesom Wike allegedly arranging with INEC officials to rig the just-concluded Rivers re-run election.
In a statement signed by the commissioner for information, Dr. Tam George, the Rivers State government described the APC and Sahara Reporters as inmates in the prison of their own lies.
“We categorically deny these latest allegations as a sick fabrication, and an outright lie,” Tam George said.
“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.
The commissioner described the voice changer technology as childish, stating that APC has hit a record low for trying to blackmail Governor Wike with such dumb technology.
“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” said the commisioner.
“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.”
