Prince Tony Momoh, a former Minister of Information on Thursday said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has no reason to be unhappy with Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation despite a leaked audio tape that had been trending in the media where the Minister was allegedly insulting President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking in an interview with Daily Independent, Momoh one of the national leaders of the APC said the intention of those behind the leaked audio was to undermine the presidential campaign of the APC.
While advising those releasing the tapes to find better things doing, he said APC will not judge Amaechi based on the audio leak.
“There are three ways people express themselves; in their thoughts, words and in their deeds. Many people say thoughts are free. That is a lie because your own thoughts are recorded in creation and you bear responsibility for them. But unfortunately, human beings cannot read the thoughts of people”.
“So, if you know what people think of you, they may even be wishing you dead while they are laughing. So, people bear responsibility for whatever they do. On earth, it is what we see you do and we monitor that we use in binding you”.
“No matter what they say, Amaechi has been damn effective and we have no reason to be unhappy with him. He is a fighter. So, if people just want to use thinking aloud which he is entitled to, to undo him, then they are using wrong means because it cannot affect Amaechi’s output”.
“Let people look for more credible ways of undermining the APC campaign. The campaign has taken off and as you can see, it is a movement that is looking at the issue of what APC has done in the last three years in attending to the human condition in Nigeria which PDP didn’t do for 16 years” he said.
