By Mike Odeh James
The federal government has come out strongly in defence of the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, over the audio clip shared by an opposition media expert , Reno Omokri, where he was purportedly heard pouring invectives on President Muhammadu Buhari as someone who doesn’t takes advice nor reads to get information .
Speaking to pressmen in in the nation’s capital yesterday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said audio clips were part of the plot by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to ensure that the ongoing campaign for the 2019 elections is not based on issues but on mudslinging.
The minister lampooned the opposition party for bringing mudslinging ,invectives and blackmail into an otherwise vibrant issues based campaigns .
He further insisted that the PDP was wasting its time with such campaigns .
“What is the point in shopping around for audio clips or publications that are then maliciously edited out of context? Why do they think this will break our ranks in the ruling party? What advantage do they think they can get from this infantile act?”
“Whoever wants to circulate any audio or video clip should do so in its entirety so that the people can understand the context, otherwise, let them continue wasting their time,” Mohammed said” .
