Musiliu Obaniko is still denying. But the denial is over for
Governor as he has finally admitted that his voice was one
of the voices Nigerians heard in the rigging audio clip.

An Army officer, Captain Sagir Koli, recorded the voices of Fayose,
ex-Minister of State , Police Affairs Minister Jelili
Adesiyan, Osun State PDP governorship candidate Iyiola Omisore and
Brig.-Gen. Aliyu Momoh strategising on how to use soldiers to manipulate
the election.

But Fayose is trying to confuse the issue. He was heard clearly on tape
telling the General that Chief of Army staff is working with him through
the President (‘he said President asked him to call him’) and that
Soldiers arrested Policemen who are working for him with a designated

Fayose  denied discussing a rigging plot, adding that “he was accusing
Gen. Momoh of conniving with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig
the election”.

He has therefore challenged his predecessor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to go to
court and prove that the military and the Peoples Democratic Party
colluded to rig the June 21, 2015, governorship election.

Fayose also challenged Fayemi to produce the soldiers, who participated
in the alleged electoral malfeasance in court and insisted that the
soldiers must produce evidence to back up the allegation.

The governor was reacting to the ex-governor’s explanations on an ADABA
88.9 FM programme, “APC Change Hour,” in which Fayemi said some soldiers
were ready to give evidence in court.

The audio clip, which has gone viral on the Internet, was aired on the
programme. Fayemi said the second part would soon be released and the
details will shock Nigerians.
