Atiku Reacts to Leaked ‘Rigging’ Audio

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Candidate has reacted to a leaked audio recording making the rounds on social media in which his running mate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, and the Chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Aminu Tambuwal is heard in an alleged plan to rig Saturday’s presidential election.

However, in a swift reaction, Atiku’s spokesperson, Phrank Shuaibu in a statement said any attentive listener would know that the audio is fake.

“We warned last week that as the election approaches, there will be a spike in the rate of propaganda on social media. With barely 24 hours to the poll, we have witnessed propaganda from not just the All Progressives Congress but the Labour Party as well.

“In this latest drivel, a montage of speeches delivered by Atiku, Tambuwal, and Okowa since last year were manipulated and pieced together to give an impression that they were discussing plans to rig Saturday’s election. In this age of artificial intelligence technology, even dead people can be portrayed as delivering speeches. This is nothing new.

“For the record, Atiku has run in two presidential elections and has never been indicted or prosecuted for election violence or vote buying.

“But some people think they can sell a narrative of Atiku manipulating this election. This is indeed the height of desperation, the last kick of a dying horse. The APC and the Labour Party must note that elections are not won on social media but at the polling units,” the statement added.
