The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who is also the Director General of the Buhari-Osinbajo Presidential Campaign, was heard allegedly speaking ill about the country.
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 saying that Nigeria is hopeless and helpless, that the only way for the country to make progress is for “everybody to be killed”. Amaechi allegedly 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 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.
Shaibu shared the audio and asked Nigerians to vote against Buhari in the forthcoming election.
He said 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,” he said in a statement.
“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.”
