Amaechi Caught On Secret Tapes Abusing Buhari
The Minister for Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, who doubles as the director-general of President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, has been heard in an audio recording to be criticizing and insulting the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, whose re-election bid he leads.
Although, 360nobs could not independently verify the authenticity of the audio tape which was released by the campaign team of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, it is now doing the rounds on the internet.
According to an audio released by Phrank Shaibu, an aide of Atiku, the minister was quoted as saying the only way for the country to make progress is for “everybody to be killed”.
“This country can never change, I swear. The only way this country can change is in a situation where everybody is killed,” Amaechi said in the audio.
“This country is going nowhere. When Magnus (Abe) was secretary to the Rivers State Government (SSG), I told him that this country is hopeless and helpless and he told me, ‘Oga, stop it’. This cannot be coming from a governor.
“But two months in Abuja, Magnus came to meet me and said, I agree with you; this country is hopeless and helpless. All they do in Abuja is to share money.
“I have already written to the governor of Katsina state and I don’t know why he has not replied to give us the land in Daura for a university in Daura. The next university would be in my village. There is a popular saying while we were growing up, that charity begins at home. Will my own begin abroad?
“The president does not listen to anybody. He doesn’t care. You can write what you want to write. Does he read? I was flying with him in the aircraft and we saw a news report where a goat seller was complaining that he couldn’t sell his goats during Sallah because of Buhari’s administration. And the president said what my business with goat sellers is?”
In the audio above, he said:
“These are not things you publish ooo. If you publish them, you will never sit with me any day.
“Three years of Buhari oo, everybody is crying, crying…pressmen are crying, farmers are crying, workers are crying, politicians are crying, students are crying, three years oo!
“The rate of poverty is very high. The people are hungry. Nigeria will never change!”
When contacted, David Iyofor, the spokesperson for Mr Amaechi, said the minister’s team was still reviewing the recording and needed more time to do so before commenting on the matter.
Yesterday, I set up the @NGRPresident. I knew if I released the full #AmaechiTapes, they’d say it was fake. Now that @ToluOgunlesi admitted it is actually Amaechi, but from 2014, here is the rest of Part 1 proving that @AsoRock lied. Part 2 is coming shortly. LISTEN and SHARE pic.twitter.com/e3WiSyPIdX
