Reno Omokri, an ex-presidential aide on new media, has released another audio recording of the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, 24hours after he released the first one where Amaechi referred to President Muhammadu Buhari as an ignoramus who neither takes advice nor reads to acquire information.
Omokri made the second 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 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.
He tweeted: “Yesterday, I set up the @NGRPresident. I knew if I released the full #AmaechiTapes, they’d say it was fake.
“Now that @ToluOgunlesi admitted it is actually Amaechi, but from 2014, here is the rest of Part 1 proving that @AsoRock lied.”
Earlier, Omokri had also written on the micro-blogging site: “24 hours after I released the first BOMBSHELL of Rotimi
@ChibuikeAmaechi criticising @MBuhari as a man that does not even read or listen to advise, he has not denied the authenticity of the tape.
“Rotimi @ChibuikeAmaechi. I am waiting for you. One squeak from you and I release the Part 2. How can you know that President @MBuhari is a leader that does not LISTEN, does not READ, and has no CAPACITY, yet you are foisting him in Nigeria. All for the love of money and power!
“Part 2 is coming shortly.”
Few hours later, Amaechi released the part 2. See it below;
BOMBSHELL: LISTEN and SHARE Part 2 #AmaechiTapes. Rotimi @ChibuikeAmaechi, DG of @MBuhari’s campaign 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.” LISTEN and RETWEET pic.twitter.com/6t01BgqiHD
