2019: Amaechi under fire over ‘leaked audio’, told to resign as Buhari’s Campaign DG

Mixed reactions have trailed the release of a full audio recording of the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, allegedly referring to President Muhammadu Buhari as an ignoramus, who neither takes advice nor reads to acquire information.

Reno Omokri, an ex-presidential aide on New Media, made the full audio release available on Sunday in a post on his Twitter page, amid the controversies that trailed an earlier snippet he made public.

Recall that in the snippet, Amaechi was reportedly heard saying, “The President does not listen to anybody. Does he even read?”


But the Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital, New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, has claimed that the audio recording was from 2014 at the height of Amaechi’s fight with Omokri’s former principal, President Goodluck Jonathan.

In what appears as a counterattack against Ogunlesi’s defence, Omokri released the full clip, where Amaechi was put on record mentioning President Buhari’s name.

Amaechi has now been roundly accused of working for Buhari because of personal gains and urged to step down as Director-General of his campaign.
