Transport minister Rotimi Ameachi has recently been caught on tape admitting that President Muhammadu Buhari has always ordered the CBN to keep printing money since 2015 —according to Peoples Gazette.

In an interview with journalists prior to the 2019 general election in which Mr Buhari was re-elected, Mr Amaechi also disclosed that they swore an oath as Ministers to never to publicly admit to Nigerians that the government was on a printing spree of the Naira.

“And most of you didn’t know at the time we took over, most Nigerians don’t even know because we have sworn to an oath not to tell anybody we were printing money,” Rotimi Amaechi revealed.

“Do you know when a country prints money? When it has no money at all. We were just printing money to pay debt.”

Amaechi’s comments further exposed the cover-up that has followed President Buhari’s widely condemned approach to the country’s economy, as millions of citizens continue to plunge into poverty.

Nigeria has since emerged as the country with the highest number of poor people in the world. The country also has the poorest electricity supply and is as well the second country with the most jobless people worldwide.

Last month, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo expressed concerns on crude oil revenue, disclosing that the federal government printed extra N60 billion for states to share in March.

“My worry is that we will wake up one day like Argentina, the naira will be ₦1,000, ₦2,000 and will be moving because we don’t have money coming in,” he maintained while lamenting that the current administration borrows without means or the idea of paying back.

However in response, the Minister of Finance, Budget, and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed accused the governor of spreading falsehood, stating that “The issue that was raised by the Edo state governor for me is very, very sad because it is not a fact” … a denial which confirms Rotimi Amaechi’s latest comments.

Gistmates, controversial cleric Father Ejike Mbaka has announced a one-month shutdown of the his church — Adoration Ministry in Enugu.

This decision seemingly may not be unconnected to the order given earlier to him by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Bishop Calistus Onaga.

The ministry sent out a Tuesday morning notice alerting members that Father Mbaka was proceeding on a one-month private prayer retreat.

Father Mbaka

The notice reads:

“Our Spiritual Director, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka wishes to inform his beloved adorers that he has embarked on a private prayer retreat that will end on 10th June 2021.

“Consequently, no ministry activities shall be held in the ministry ground pending his return.

“He directs that members of the ministry are to observe this period of his retreat as they used to do during the usual January breaks of the ministry, by praying at their homes, being charitable and fasting according to their ability. Adoration! Holy Spirit is our Power.”

Garba Shehu

Gistmates, amid a flying report on the attempt to rob Professor Ibrahim Gambari, Chief of Staff to President Buhari in Aso Rock, the presidential spokesman Garba Shehu had deleted his other tweet on the details of another move to rob the residence of another Aso Rock official.

About an hour after he commented on what he described as a “foolish attempt” to rob Gambari’s residence, Garba Shehu also tweeted on a similar incident on the residence of Abdullahi Maikano, another Aso Rock official.

An online platform had reported that both Gambari and Maikano were robbed inside the Presidential Villa (Aso Rock) … with the shocking news prevented from been released to the public.

According to the report, which has been trending online, armed robbers invaded Aso Rock and emptied the residences of Gambari and Maikano.

But Garba Shehu had dismissed the report, commenting only on the attempt on Gambari’s residence, which he said is outside the seat of power.

“The Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari has confirmed that there “was a foolish attempt” to burgle his residence at 3:00am this morning but it turned out to be unsuccessful.

“Professor Gambari, whose house is on a street next to the Villa has assured that there is nothing to worry about from the incident,” he had said in a statement.

But moments later, he tweeted on the attempt to burgle the residence of Maikano.

The presidential spokesman had said the suspect behind the incident was captured on Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), adding that the police were on his trail.

But surprisingly, he deleted the tweet which had been retweeted over 200 times and posted a fresh one which had no information at all on the CCTV part.

But it appears several people already have a receipt of his now-deleted tweet and it’s spreading faster than bushfire on the internet!
