Olu Onemola, the Special Assistant on New Media to Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has stated that the fake audio recording released by online henchmen and mercenary influencers is a doctored audio file meant to mislead the public.
In a series of tweets on his handle (@OnemolaOlu) Onemola stated that the Senate President has previously reiterated the reasons why he left APC, hence, the fake recording was the work of desperate agents of the ruling party, the APC.
“For the record: we always restrain from responding to inconsequential issues that we can otherwise ignore. However, in order to put this issue to rest so that we can move on to real issues, these are the facts:
“The audio recording that is being circulated online by known anti-Saraki henchmen is a doctored recording. It was probably part of the mix of manipulations that APC decided to employ for today’s election in four LGAs in Kwara South.
“We will not allow people like @Ogundamisi and other mercenary “influencers” to create false and mischievous impressions that may easily be consumed by the otherwise unsuspecting public.
“Dr. Saraki, in his response to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in August 2018, stated emphatically that he left the APC because “the minimum conditions for peace, cooperation, inclusion and a general sense of belonging did not exist”.
“Additionally, in that same response to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Dr. Saraki emphasized that he “never discussed any such personal and pecuniary benefits with anybody.” Again, we still challenge that anybody who has contrary facts should come forward.
“Finally, we ask the public to understand that in their desperation to hang on to power, agents of the ruling party are stooping to new lows by doctoring and releasing such audio files. We expect more of such desperate moves. Fake news, remains fake news. Their lies remain lies.”
For the record: we always restrain from responding to inconsequential issues that we can otherwise ignore. However, in order to put this issue to rest so that we can move on to real issues, these are the facts: #Thread https://t.co/H4OJz3cXk1
