Mixed reactions have trailed the release of a full audio recording of the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, allegedly referring to President Muhammadu Buhari as an ignoramus, who neither takes advice nor reads to acquire information.

Reno Omokri, an ex-presidential aide on New Media, made the full 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 that the audio recording was from 2014 at the height of Amaechis fight with Omokri’s Ex-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 Buhari’s name.

Amaechi has now been roundly accused of working for Buhari because of personal gains and urged to step down as Director-General of his campaign.

Here are some tweets as curated by Press:

@Demoore90210: #AmaechiTapes is a massive own goal by the APC team. If Amaechi, a serving Minister and DG of Buhari’s Presidential Campaign Organisation doesn’t rate Buhari, why do you? Amaechi knows Buhari is an empty barrel, but for personal monetary gains he remains loyal.

@rickieflamez: If after these tapes from Amaechi someone comes out to defend him and Buhari, that person is irredeemable and needs an urgent brain transplant.

@nicholasibekwe: In the light of the leaked audio, if it is authenticated, Amaechi should either resign as Buhari’s campaign DG or be excused from the role. There is nowhere in world anyone in his position caught making such a statement would be allowed to continue in the role.

@iamUncleMark: In a sane country Amaechi will tender his resignation. As I said “In a sane country”

@CaptViktor: Has Amaechi come out to deny these tapes yet? Or are we going to ignore all he said and continue shouting Sai Baba

@YarKafanchan: 1. Amaechi thinks Nigerian People should all die before Nigeria can get better. (Perhaps why Buharis Government has been deliberate in wasting Nigerian lives since they got in)

2. Buhari asked what is my business with goat seller in Onitsha


@Papadonkee: Part 3 of the #AmaechiTapes has the Rt. Hon. Minister admitting that people are dying, poverty is increasing, things have gotten worse since Buhari assumed office in 2015. The @MBuhari Campaign Council will be inaugurated tomorrow. Amaechi is the DG. If you were him would you

@_Samuelopara: I guess Amaechi can’t come out from this, How do you say this and still tell us Buhari is the right man to lead Nigeria. Politicians don’t Care about the Masses, He was laughing talking about suffering of the Masses.
