Ignorant Propagandists Twisting My Stance On Leaked Audio – Kenneth Okonkwo

Kenneth Okonkwo, Nollywood actor cum spokesman of the Labour Party (LP) presidential campaign council, has reacted to the insinuation that he confirmed the leaked conversation between Peter Obi and the founder of Living Faith Church, David Oyedepo.

Information Nigeria reports that Okonkwo had in a Sunday statement said oppositions were making efforts to spin the conversation between the former Anambra governor and clergyman into a religious statement.

While confirming that the former governor did converse with the Bishop, Kenneth clarified that Obi only urged the Bishop to help push the message of the equal stake of all Nigerians in the Nigerian project because of the impression the ruling party used in deriving its campaign, adding that Obi never discriminated against any religion as his running mate, Datti-Baba Ahmed is a Muslim.

However, in a statement via Instagram on Tuesday, Okonkwo said his earlier statement neither confirmed, admitted, or denied the leaked conversation.

He maintained the speculations that he confirmed the audio are words of propagandists, stressing he simply analyzed the content of the conversation.

According to him, the Party is more concerned about recovering its mandate in court and ushering in a new Nigeria.

He said: “I don’t normally respond to the tweets and chats of ignorant men like a lot of people have been issuing out since the purported audio tape was released by whoever but this may keep them perpetually ignorant.

“Let me educate their ignorance. Go back and read my chat or tweet and check whether you will see confirmation or admission or denial. Those are their words and that of their propagandists, not mine. I simply analyzed the contents of the conversation and found absolutely nothing wrong with it. It’s immaterial whether it is anybody’s voice or not. Not that I care whether anybody said I confirmed or not, that’s their business.

“I am rather full of joy that before long, we will recover our mandate that will usher in a new Nigeria. Keep faith alive my friends, God is in control. Love you all”
