Leaked Audio: Voice Changer Technology is being used to Blackmail Gov. Wike – Rivers Govt

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike

The Rivers State government has said that the tape circulating the media, of Governor Nyesom Wike, threatening to kill INEC officials (in the last legislative rerun elections), if they do not do what he “asked them to do,” or “return what (he) gave them,” is false.

A statement by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Communication, Austin Tam-George, said that SaharaReporters (who published the audio), is the “propaganda bullhorn of the All Progressives Congress (APC),” adding that they have used voice changer technology to blackmail the governor.

The attention of the Rivers State Government has been drawn to a publication by SaharaReporters, alleging that Governor Nyesom Wike had illicit contacts with officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), in the run up to the rerun elections, on the 10th of December 2016 in Rivers State.

We categorically deny these latest allegations as a sick fabrication, and 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 especially 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.

    What is voice changer technology?, do we have that in Nigeria?. Let’s always tell ourselves the truth, wike has always been a thug who moved up the political ladder, this is something he can conveniently say. Now whether he was the one been recorded or someone else who has similar voice to him, I don’t know, but rivers state government shouldn’t be confidently mentioning technology that does not exist in Nigeria.

    The vocal fillers, that is so Wike. I have my reservations though…don’t think he will be foolish enough to issue such threats through the phone, knowing it could be used against him.

    I don’t know what people gain by pulling down another. Nobody is a saint when it comes to politics, so the person leaking this out is not innocent too.

    I restate, PDP does not need to play games to win elections in Rivers State. It is APC that needs to play such games and they shamelessly played it to the hilt, using state apparatus. This, under a government of ‘change’.

    The truth is that whether the governor made the statement or not, and I bet he did not, the present government has turned the tide of things on elections back to the dark days, thus forcing all manners of unwholesome, unbecoming and unacceptable acts back into the body polity. This is a tragedy. Worse things will be seen actually if the government in power insists on witch-hunting opponents and at the same time, make it impossible for free and fair elections to hold, to enable a change in govt so that they too can be witch-hunted -that is what one-sided corruption fight will result to at the end of the day. It will be war at the next general elections people. Let us not deceive ourselves that the fight back will not happen by those who see their comrades-in-corruption sitting pretty as saints in this APC government. And then you want to rig elections to prevent that push for change! It will be war people.

    So keep on clapping and hailing fundamental injustice. We will all suffer it, the way we are with you in the suffering unleashed on us by electing a truly clueless mind as a president in C21st Nigeria.

    The APC & INEC has paid someone money to blackmail the governor of rivers state since their evil plans failed during the rerun election. They have to come up with another strategy to rubbish the name of the governor & the state, I beg FG & Ameachi in the name of God to let peace reign in the Niger Delta especially rivers state. I known all their families are in abroad but what goes up come around.
