The presidency has reacted to the released audio clips of the Minister of Transportation and Director General of President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amaechi, that have gone viral.
Reacting, the Special Adviser to President Buhari on Oversea Digital Communication and Aso Rock, Tolu Ogunlesi, said the audio released by Reno Omokri were doctored.
Reno had released two parts of audio clips where Amaechi condemned President Buhari and his administration and also expressed his hopelessness in Nigeria. *You can get all the gist and audios on AceGist.
But in defense of Amaechi, Ogunlesi said the audios released by Reno were doctored and did not reflect what Amaechi was actually saying.
Ogunlesi further released an audio, claiming that that was part of the original conversation Reno edited to make the viral Amaechi’s clips from.
Ogunlesi said: “You haven’t heard the last of the Amaechi ‘tapes’. We are dealing with Principalities & Powers, who‘ll go to any lengths to fight dirty.
“1. One of the fraudulently edited clips:
“In original version (pre-PDP edit) which I‘ve shared, this is what Amaechi said:
‘“CORRUPTION HAS BECOME OUR CULTURE, IT’S OUR WAY OF LIFE. NOTHING CAN CHANGE IT. JUST three years of Buhari o, everybody is crying, crying, pressmen are crying, Farmers are crying…’
See the audio:
