Rotimi Amaechi criticises Buhari in leaked audio



The Director – General of the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation , Mr . Rotimi Amaechi , has been caught on tape allegedly criticising President Muhammadu Buhari .
The audio clip , which is less than 10 seconds , was posted on Twitter by Reno Omokiri , a former aide to ex – President Goodluck Jonathan .

In the clip which could not be authenticated by The PUNCH , Amaechi , who is also the Minister of Transportation , purportedly said Buhari neither reads nor listens to anyone .

Amaechi purportedly said , “ The President is not listening to anybody . He doesn ’ t care. You can write anything you want . The President doesn ’ t care . Does he read ?”
The context in which Amaechi made the statement was unknown .

The person who the minister was talking to is also not stated .

However , Omokri , who is a staunch critic of the Buhari government, said he had evidence to show that the audio was genuine .

He threatened to release more audio clips in the event that Amaechi denies the authenticity of the clip .

Omokri wrote , “ We have more of the secretly recorded audios of Chibuike Amaechi , DG of the Muhammadu Buhari campaign , saying terrible things about Buhari ’ s government. I hear Amaechi wants to lie that he was referring to Goodluck Jonathan .

“ Let him do that and I will release part two which clearly shows he referred to Buhari . ”

Omokri said Amaechi had no respect for Buhari and even stated in another audio clip that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was the only Nigerian leader he respects.

He added , “ The man has no iota of respect for Buhari . In fact , he ( Amaechi ) hero worshipped former President Obasanjo in the tape and said he is the only worthy Nigerian leader. They know the truth but hide it . ”

Attempts to get a response from Amaechi proved abortive as his Spokesman , David Iyofor neither responded to phone calls nor a text message sent to him on Saturday .
