The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who is also the Director General of the Buhari-Osinbajo Presidential Campaign, was heard allegedly speaking ill about Nigeria and the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, whose re-election bid he leads.
In the short audio released by Phrank Shaibu, an aide of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday, Amaechi was heard allegedly describing President Buhari as a failure who has been unable to meet the expectations of various segments of the country.
Amaechi, the Director General of the Buhari-Osinbajo Presidential Campaign allegedly 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!”
Shaibu shared the audio and asked Nigerians to vote against Buhari in the forthcoming election.
According to him, a vote for the president “is a vote for stagnation”, asking Buhari to “quit honorably instead of wasting taxpayers monies on his re-election bid”. He said:
“The truth is that, the other day, the President confessed that the economy had collapsed under his watch. On another occasion , the wife confessed to the fact that, the canal and not her dearest husband, President Buhari was in charge of the country and now, the director-general of his re-election campaign has confessed to the lack of capacity of President Buhari and the dismal failure of hid administration.”
“The truth is, the president has established a record of failures which probably no other President would ever equal or erase. Mrs Aishat Buhari was partially correct when she stated that two people are preventing her husband from performing well. With this audio tape, if the two don’t include her husband then she is not completely being truthful.”
