A storm of mixed reactions by Nigerians has greeted leaked audio of Rotimi Amaechi purportedly Nigeria can only change in a situation where everybody is killed.
Amaechi who is the Director-General of the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation purportedly made this statement in leaked audio released by Reno Omokri, a former Presidential media aide.
In the audio, Amaechi could be heard purportedly saying: “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.”
In the audio, which could not be authenticated by Concise News, Amaechi, the minister of Transportation and former governor of Rivers state, purportedly said Buhari neither reads nor listens to anyone and does not care.
Amaechi purportedly said, “The President is not listening to anybody. He doesn’t care. You can write anything you want. The President doesn’t care. Does he read?”
Moments after Omokri released the second part of the audio, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to air their opinions on the purported statement of the minister.
Concise News captured some of the reactions below…
“this country won’t change I swear, the only way this country can change is if everyone is killed” – Rotimi Amaechi (President Buhari’s RE-ELECTION campaign DG)

In his bitterness he even dragged @DemolaRewaju into the thread.
Tolu is a Presidential Media aide. He now has evidence that Amaechi was subbing PMB. Yet his fake thread has not been deleted. 🙃 pic.twitter.com/mq7sdR9Pxo

Hey @toluogunlesi, why did you LIE last night that Amaechi was talking about GEJ? I warned you not to turn to Dawisu. This is a continuation of the audio and there's more. You know the President doesn't read, you know he doesn't care, tell Bashir to give you 5 mins with him pic.twitter.com/sfdEfjoPRN

Hey Tolu, there's a reason your boss @BashirAhmaad did not reply, Garba, Femi and Amaechi himself stayed away, but "omo ina lan ran si ina right"? You should have stayed out of this one because there's more. Stop letting them play you.

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.

🤔 Maybe they should sack him afterall. So he knows the country is going nowhere yet he watched Keyamo and our intellectual morons disgrace themselves daily on Twitter in a futile attempt to defend inanities? 😂😂😂 I rest my case. Amaechi is on his own. 🚶🏿♀️ https://t.co/OapPTcA8T4

You saw Gandollars
You witnessed Zaria massacre
You are aware of Babachir Lawal & Maina
You remember Benue mass burial
You can't pretend about Taraba Killings
You listened to the Amaechi, yet you tweet #44ReasonstoReelectBuhari

Has Amaechi issued a statement yet? 🤔

In this other audio tape, Amaechi says in just three years of Buhari everyone is crying. So even they know that their boss is a curse on Nigeria who is destroying the very fabric of the nation. Give him a 2nd term and Nigeria will disintegrate, as Amaechi himself says here. pic.twitter.com/ziDVxpGlqU

Under the Buhari government:
9.3 million Nigerians have lost their jobs;
1678+ Soldiers have been killed by Boko Haram;
Just under 5000 Nigerian civilians have been killed.

From what I've heard before now and this Amaechi' tape, most of these guys know Buhari is a failure. A monumental one at that but they have to keep their meal ticket. It's a shame really.

You do not believe the country can get better unless 'everybody is killed' yet you receive tax payers money every month as salary to do what you don't believe in
Next time Rotimi Amaechi plays 'Mr patriotic', play this tape for him

Amaechi's betrayal hurt more than when the brothers of the night's watch stabbed Jon Snow to death.#AmaechiTapes

“3 years of Buhari, everybody is crying! Pressmen are crying, farmers are crying, workers are crying, politicians are crying, students are crying! The rate of poverty is v high. People are hungry. Nigeria will never change!”-Rotimi Amaechi Min. of Transport/DG of Buhari Campaign

Listen to the full audio record of Amaechi telling people how uninformed the president is.
The Same Amaechi is the DG of Buhari’s campaign and wants us to vote same man who doesn’t read , who doesn’t know anything.
Nigerians think! pic.twitter.com/UoD2zENibO
