Rotimi Amaechi Reacts To Audio Tapes Of Him Criticizing President Buhari

Rotimi Amaechi has finally reacted to audio tapes of him criticizing President Buhari, which went viral over the weekend after being shared by Reno Omokri.

Reacting to the audio tapes through his media aide, Israel Ibeleme, Rotimi Amaechi who is Nigeria’s Minister of Transport and Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organization claimed that it was doctored.

The statement reads in full;

Purported fake audio of Amaechi was Doctored.

Attention have been drawn to the purported fake audio which was doctored from an unknown journalist, recorded outside the minister’s office imitating the Minister’s speech sound. Which claimed that the Minister was speaking against the President and the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It is Important to let the general public know that we have worked with the Minister since February 2015 till date and that the minister has not in any way spoken against the president Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements.

The fake doctored audio, claiming that it emanated from the conversation which the minister had with his press corp.

They paid some group of boys to destroy the image of Director General of Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organization, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

We want to put the public on the know, that the said doctored audio report is false.

Recall that in the audio tapes, Amaechi said, “This country can never change, I swear. The only way this country can change is in a situation where everybody is killed. This country is going nowhere.

 “When Magnus (Abe) was my Secretary to the Rivers State Government, I told him this country was hopeless and helpless and he told me, ‘Oga, stop it. This cannot be coming from a governor.’ But two months later 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.’

 “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 an aircraft and we saw a news report where a goat seller was complaining he couldn’t sell his goats during Sallah because of Buhari’s administration. And the President said, ‘What is my business with goat sellers?”
