Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, has described as fake an audio wherein he allegedly revealed plans to rig saturday’s election alongside, Governors; Aminu Tambuwal and Ifeanyi Okowa of Sokoto and Delta states respectively.
Phrank Shuaibu, Atiku’s Special Assistant on Public Communication in a statement said the clip in circulation was a confirmation of last week’s alert of plans by opponents to deepen its propaganda.
“In this age of artificial intelligence technology, even dead people can be portrayed as delivering speeches. This is nothing new,” he said.
“How can Tambuwal be referring to Atiku by his full name in a one-on-one private conversation? This is nonsensical, similar to the type of meaningless chatter about President Muhammadu Buhari being dead and replaced by one Jubril from Sudan,” he added.
