I’m Being Pressured To Go On Exile – Peter Obi

Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has denied describing the 2023 elections as a religious war, saying he is under pressure to go on exile.

In an audio that leaked over the weekend, Obi was heard telling Bishop David Oyedepo, Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, to help him canvass votes of Christians.

He also said the election was a religious war and he needed the help of the influential man of God to get through to the South West and Kwara State.

But in a series of tweets on Wednesday night, Obi denied the conversation and said he would take legal action against Peoples Gazette, the online platform that released the audio.

“The present attempts by the APC as a Party, and the APC Led-government through some government officials and agencies to divert our attention from our blatantly stolen mandate is unfortunate and sad.

“These have come and continued to manifest in different ways, such as the malicious accusation of the Minister of Information, Mr. Lai Mohammed, the circulation of a fake doctored audio call, and a pressure on me to leave the country.

“Let me reiterate that the audio call being circulated is fake, and at no time throughout the campaign and now did I ever say, think, or even imply that the 2023 election is, or was a religious war,” Obi said.
