‘Does the President Even Read?’, Frustrated Campaign DG Amaechi Cries Out in Leaked Audio
Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has released short audio online of Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi allegedly making uncomplimentary remarks about President Muhammadu Buhari.
Amaechi who was Director-General of the Muhammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign for 2015 is also the DG of the President Buhari’s 2019 Re-election Campaign.
In the short audio released by Omokri on his Twitter page, Amaechi was allegedly heard saying Buhari does not listen to complaints of Nigerians nor read comments concerning his administration.
“The President does not listen to anybody. Does he even read,” Amaechi allegedly said, lending credence to earlier reports in this regard that he doesn’t.
When he picks a paper, the first page he reaches for is the cartoon page. He laughs and laughs.

Omokri wrote: “Nigerians hear the audio of Rotimi Amaechi’s conversation, they may weep. The man has no iota of respect for Buhari.
“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!”
The former presidential aide further threatened to release more audio of Amaechi criticizing Buhari if the minister does not own up to the statement.

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

Amaechi is yet to make an official statement on the audio which has since gone viral in the Nigerian social media.
The leaked audio while being the first major indication of a crack within the ranks of the President’s men and a disconnect between the Presidency and Nigerians, may have also confirmed fears within the APC that the President would lose the 2019 presidential polls.
The recent appointment of the President’s relative Amina Zakari as head of INEC’s Presidential Election Collation Committee has been described by opposition politicians and civil society groups as part of a grand design to undermine the 2019 General Elections and subvert the will and wishes of Nigerians in spite of the abysmal performance of the APC across board in Nigeria.
