LAGOS, Nigeria – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) calls on Nigerians and the International Community to utterly disregard the simulated audio recording purported to be the voices of its Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, his running mate, Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa and Director-General of the Presidential Campaign Council, Governor Aminu Tambuwal, describing it as another pathetical fabrication by the sinking All Progressives Congress (APC).
The fake audio recording is evidently part of the reprehensive, repulsive and foul design of the APC which has recruited hackers to produce and circulate fake media materials with a view to demonizing the PDP and our Candidate before Nigerians ahead of the election.
From the manipulated sound speed and pitch, it is clear that the recording was computer created and simulated to blackmail our leaders and deceive unsuspecting members of the public.
It is laughable for the APC to want Nigerians to believe that Atiku Abubakar, Gov Okowa and Gov Tambuwal who know themselves, can be calling their own names in a conversation as heard in the fake audio recording. Such further betrays the recording as an amateur simulation work.
Moreover, the APC has failed in this attempt to fool Nigerians by using Artificial Intelligence (A.I) to clone and mimic the voices of our leaders as Nigerians are smart enough to detect the distorted wave forms and sound pitch that typify an Artificial Intelligence simulated speech.
The fact is that no matter how hard falsehood attempts to thrive, the truth will always prevail. The APC has shown again how low it can descend with falsehood, fabrications and lies just to deceive Nigerians being jittery about the elections in view of the hardship they have caused Nigerians in the last seven and half years.
In any case, our Party and our Presidential Candidate are ready for the elections. The tide of support by the overwhelming majority of Nigerians is clear and we will not be deterred or distracted by the manipulations of the rejected and fizzling APC.
The PDP charges the security agencies to take note of the activities of the APC, take urgent steps to track down the makers of this fake audio material and make them face the wrath of the law.
The PDP urges Nigerians to remain focused and not be distracted in their determination to rescue our nation at this critical time.
