Nigeria’s transport minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has been heard in a new audio recording ridiculing the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, despite being the director-general of his re-election campaign.
The new tape recording was reportedly given to Premium Times by Phrank Shaibu, a spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar campaign.
Mr Abubakar is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
This comes barely hours after Reno Omokri, ex-media aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan released an audio reecording, in which, Mr. Amaechi alledgedly said Buhari neither reads nor listen to advice.
In the latest recording, the minister of transport painted President Buhari as a failure.
In the tape Amaechi was heard saying, “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!”
CHECKPOINTCHARLEY cannot vouch for the authenticity of the audio recording.
Attempts are being made to get Mr. Amaechi’s response.
However, the views expressed by Amaechi in the tape over Buhari’s government, is in conformity with that of majority of Nigerians.
