Rotimi Amaechi, Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, has allegedly put a dent in President Muhammadu Buhari’s political career. In an audio currently making rounds on social media, the Minister who is also the DG of Buhari campaign can be heard allegedly saying ‘the President doesn’t read’.
“The President doesn’t listen to anyone, he doesn’t care anymore. Does he read?”, he said.
The 7-seconds audio has however sparked controversy on if it was meant for President Buhari or Goodluck Jonathan, given that the former Governor of Rivers State had a faceoff with the former President. However former Presidential spokesperson, Reno Omokri who released the audio wrote;
BOMBSHELL: LISTEN and SHARE as the DG of the @MBuhari campaign @ChibuikeAmaechi, destroys Buhari. “The President does not listen to anybody. Does he even read”-Rotimi Amaechi. LISTEN and RETWEET
Reno further tweeted that
If Nigerians hear the audio of Rotimi @ChibuikeAmaechi’s conversation, they may weep. The man has no iota of respect for @MBuhari. In fact he hero worshipped former President Obasanjo in the tape and said he is the only worthy Nigerian leader. They know the truth, but hide it!
He went further to say
We have more of the secretly recorded audios of @ChibuikeAmaechi, DG of the @MBuhari campaign, saying terrible things about Buhari’s govt. I hear Amaechi wants to lie that he was referring to GEJ. Let him do that and I will release part 2 which clearly show he referred to Buhari
But the tweet has created a debate among social media users. Others challenge the short audio and others supports it.
