Tolu Ogunlesi had taken to his Twitter page, to claim that the recording is from 2014 and was in fact, directed towards Jonathan. His tweets read in part;

“Audio from 2014 or so. At the height of Amaechi’s fight with GEJ.

“In the (paraphrased) words of Victor AD – WETIN YOU GAIN #DubaiStrategy.”

However after the claims seemingly got busted by Amaechi’s audio tapes released on Sunday by Reno Omokri, Tolu Ogunlesi has been dragged by Nigerians.

That gramophone with a mustache they call Tolu Ogunlesi was disingenuously trying to deflect the Amaechi leaks with a ridiculous whataboutery until Reno moved for his jugular. Decency goes out the window when an urchin’s source of daily bread is in jeopardy. Itiboribo! Iberibe.

And oh! #AmaechiTapes just confirmed one thing. Tolu Ogunlesi is a liar and he has only his interest at heart, not that of Nigerians. I wonder how many more lies he has fed us with just to defend his paymasters? Thank you @renoomokri for exposing the charlatan.

Tolu Ogunlesi‘s descent from highly-regarded, award-winning journalist to South West Abusidiqu has been painful to observe.

Tolu Ogunlesi drove to Idu and missed an entire train Station, why are you surprised that he lies? Oduduwa Joseph Goebbels

Tolu Ogunlesi came lying to us that the Audio was in 2014 and that Amaechi was referring to GEJ. Same Ogunlesi whose office is at the Federal Secretariat, rarely knows what’s happening in the Villa except told by Bashir, is here lying. Anyway, he belongs to the family of liars!

  1. The game of politics is something i will never understand , even when they are caught they still lie

  2. Small this confusion me told have just confirmed that the president is actually a vegetable, and un educated

    Non reader hahahahaha

  3. I hope this is not just another lie. Politicians should learn to always be truthful and in that way the nation can progress

  4. He must have been paid to say such. Video of recent he’s saying it was recorded in 2014. Naija

  5. Trying to cover up for that incident is what really sparked the exposure of the Truth cos he already acknowledged that the voice was from amaechi but from 2014 which is not true

  6. in this part of the world, people do anything, I mean anything for money and they are not ashamed so long as it put money in their pockets and food on their table not minding the negative effect on the populace.

  7. Politics for you you can never ever understand them just leave them they settled them selves because they are together and they bear the same name and identity

  8. It keeps getting more interesting. Do they really think they could reverse what has been revealed? Nigerians ain’t fools you know. Your lies won’t save Amaechi

  9. Now that someone else released a tape, you are trying to channel it back that he was referring to formal president Jonathan, stop deceiving yourselves, Nigeria has passed the stage you can deceive

  10. Trying to cover up for that incident is what really sparked the exposure of the Truth because he already acknowledged that the voice was from amaechi but from 2014 which is not true

  11. Politics, is because it is election time, that’s why they are bringing past things or even fake news

  12. I know this is election period, politician will try to foolish themselves،thinking that they fooling other people .may God help them

  13. Won’t he defends his paymasters. Whichever way, this is bound to happen in any political settings

  14. I pray a time will come in Nigeria when we will have selfless leaders who will only be concerned about the growth of the nation and not themselves.

  15. Enough of all the dramas by our politicians and think of how to move this nation forward. We know they are all selfish human beings

  16. Election is coming and everyone is looking for recognition. Why do most politicians lie a lot a fake what a shame

  17. It’s all part of the game called politics, themes eli election should come and go jewe make Nigerians know their faith

  18. Politics!!!! What do you gain from lying about someone. Your children and wives will seat an hear you lying about another person . That’s bad

  19. Hmm I don’t think it lie ooo because they heard you voice in it so don’t tell me it lie, and I know what they are trying to do as a politic they want to rough it and forget the chapter

  20. What do you expect him to do, he must in one way or the other defend their own, that is how they go about deciving themselves, we are just watching.

  21. Anything coming out of PDP is nothing but a lie, how many have they embarked upon for some months now, instead for them to focus on fundamental issues they rather resort to propaganda at every corners and some Nigerian’s are falling for it.

  22. why are you people complaining as if this is new to us. The government has thrived only on lies and blackmail.

  23. What will it profit us to destroy the name of our pro leaders that sacrifice their peace for the comfort of there people.

  24. Nigerian politicians will never change!!! Blackmail, lies, witch hunting, scheming and always lying to the masses

  25. Let this audio tape be properly investigated to prove its credibility
    We cannot accept just any propaganda

  26. Infact all this people are just birds of same feathers, full of lies and deceit, there is no even a single atom of truth in their lips!

  27. The only truth is that we can’t actually say when the conversation took place, we are watching

  28. This people just take lieing as a way of life someone just comes out and lie without a conscience. This people are inhuman

  29. I’m still trying to figure out what is there in that voice record to bring down Amaechi, that’s Nigerian politics for you. Since there’s no strict punishment for these kind of actions, people will always do whatever they want and get away with it. Come to think if it, what has ever been done to any serious issue that arises in this country? Nothing my friend, nothing. So why are we complaining?

  30. All this politicians and their games of politics always trying to buy favour. I don’t know why he’s lying to us just to tarnished the name of Amaechi in public.

  31. Tolu should have done investigations before saying that it was in 2014 that Amaechi said those things, he shouldn’t have said what he is not sure of because he now looks like a liar in the presence of Nigerians. I think that what made Tolu to lie is because he was trying to protect Amaechi.

  32. This is just the life of Politicians, they will say some thing today, tomorro they will cook up another story.

  33. Hmmm he is just trying to defend him.. Anyways this is game of politics even when you catch them red handed, they still deny.

  34. Tolu might be right and I think that tape might be old, but still we have to hear it for ourselfs to know whats on that type.

  35. Politics and politicians are all game of thrones. One minute it is blue another minute it is yellow. I seriously don’t believe that this recordings are about 4years ago. So why did he release it or is Amechi better off than GEJ

  36. Tolu got what he deserves. You don’t lie to Nigerians and expect to get away with it when they find out the real truth.Next time he shouldn’t defend what he knows nothing about . It’s a shame to both him and Amaechi

  37. This is nothing more than a political game. Instead of them to concentrate on the forth coming election

  38. Yoruba media are devils for sure.. Always paid to cover the truth from us the Nigerians. God judgements is coming for real..

  39. You tried in defending the president but known the proof are not well satisfy me so I think you should bring more proof

  40. This politician self, don’t even know who to trust, They are bloody criminal. Only God can rescue us from them .

  41. If what they are saying about Tolu Ogunlesi is true, then this is bad at his height and disrupt his reputation.

  42. That gramophone with a mustache they call Tolu Ogunlesi… hahahaha omo see yarbing . This guy knows the recording was recent.. he is just scared of what the out come might bring.

  43. I seriously don’t believe that this recordings are about 4years ago. So why did he release it or is Amechi better off than GEJ

  44. Am sure these are all politics, but was Tolu really lying about the audio tape. Why must Amaechi be in the news everytime of one thing or the other.

  45. How will he Tolu Ogunlesi right his wrongdoing if all these allegations on him happens to be true. He is mot even at the villa, how come he knows all these?

  46. Politics is just too dirty in Nigeria, what you will hear today will be different what you will hear tomorrow, I wonder why audio of 2014 is just surfacing this year, May God help us

  47. In this case which has to do with politics, only God knows the truth, politicians keep lying about what the do

  48. I wonder what he gained with the lies? Defending his masters when they didn’t try to refute the audio tape. Reno said they will deny it and he will release more tapes to prove Amaechi was referring to PMB and he was true to his words. This is the beginning of the end of APC!

  49. Lieing in politics is never a new thing,,,politicians will always be lieing even wen caught in the very act

  50. They are all liars..any Nigerian who still go ahead to vote for them (buhari) is a disgrace and equal to them lairs.

  51. Do you think Nigerians are fools the fact that we cannot be heard because we Do not have voice doent mean we don’t know the truths

  52. An average politician will do exactly what he did, he must defend his pay masters, now it has proven that he was lying after all. Shame on him and his pay masters.

  53. Trying to defend himself over his lies Tolu Ogunleshi is inappropriate. Politics is never a fair game in Nigeria.

  54. Politics and their trick eeh ..ee tire me self…wetin concern 2014 and 2019 …. foolish leaders

  55. All this politicans they will just wake up and say one thing or the other to us and get out well God is watching sha

  56. Why all the lies just for political reasons and selfish ambitions. This is totally wrong and not acceptable.

  57. This people don’t care they can go to any length for this this is not defending this is injustice

  58. Wow, politicians really do have a lot of enemies.. It’s indeed not good to lie against someone

  59. What do people really gain by recording other people’s phone conversation(s)? That privacy invasion!

  60. If they like they should be lying, they are only fooling them self, but I no one day the truth will be out.

  61. He knows the truth before he was only trying to cover up until he was disgrace by the released of the full audio

  62. We are in election period and we must hear anything, all to support or disgrace a certain politician. Who knowns among Tolu Ogunlesi and Amaech who is on the truthful side?.

  63. What nonsense, why then break them out. When it was an old News, we Nigerians need to stop making a big deal in this politics.

  64. All this up and down stories, just because they want to be in power to control other. Chai.. Politics

  65. But she should have realesed the audio since if there is not complicated issue attached to it…. They are all birds of the same feather

  66. Lol. The audio actually made me laugh. Asking if the president reads. But the content in the audio is correct.

  67. All this is just a political game Nigerians are just being dragged into, may God save this county at large from this political cabals

  68. This young man is doing this to enrich him self in this election period, I mean anything for money and he is not ashamed so long as it put money in their pockets.

  69. Elections are not won by fake news or fake tapes or no fake tapes . Elections are not won on twitter . Elections are won based on achievements and future portfolios, not social media rants

  70. If You lie what DoD you stand to gain. I dont known if its doctored ornnot but its not wrong to say your mind

  71. I SAID IT YESTERDAY THAT AM TIRED OF THIS AMECHI ISSUES OFTEN TIMES AND RECENTLY TALKING AS IF HE TAKES DRUGS…YESTERDAY HE SAID ALL NIGERIA SHOULD DIE BEFORE NIGERIA WILL PROGRESS AND TALKING TRASH PLEASE MR.BUHARA PRESIDENT THROUGH HIM IN PRISON OR DO TO HIM WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO DINO MALAYE THE NICE MAN NOT THIS GUY TALKING TOOMUCH

  72. His just trying to defend himself very soon he will still say that he did not make the statement he made yesterday that all Nigerians must die before the country gets better nonsense and ingredients man

  73. I tolu ogunwusi is the one behind all this lie against amaechi, that is too bad for him, and he must tender his apology for doing such kind of things to him

  74. I don’t know why you people are so concerned about this issue, they are all bird of the same feather, tomorrow now you hear different stories entirely.

  75. Every one will defend himself once the heat is on. But some people said the audio was doctored. Nigeria we hail thee.

  76. What is the need covering Amaechi up, was he paid to do that or he is just a core supporter of Amaechi.

  77. Our leaders on God, we look for people to blame for our failures, but our success, ma me work oooo, only me work to make it successful.

  78. This people will do anything within their power to cover their inglorious activities. Lies everywhere, may God have mercy

  79. I have always known it is a false allegation. No governor in his right senses can utter such things

  80. The Nigerian political landscape is awash with charlatans and nonentities. I am not surprised. More of this mudslinging will still happen in the next few weeks

  81. you said it was an audio for Jonathan in 2014 while amechi said it was doctored, which do we believe

  82. Quite disappointing, he just spoilt his image trying to cover up for someone else because of money…
    A liar never goes Scott free I guess…

  83. Recording and making people’s conversation public is illegal.

    None of the presidential candidates can boldly tell us that some members of their team don’t say shit about them behind their back. That is the way the world is wired and that is life. The fact that people say things in their off moments against you behind your back does not mean they are totally against you.

  84. Some journalist shdnt be trusted ,why he is trying to protect amaechi or shd we believe that he has been paid to do so,thanks to REno

  85. This politicians are trying to win election, so anything they are doing is for their best interest.

  86. I just thank God none of my family is involve in politics. I don’t think I can ever understand politicians. They are so corrupt and dirty. They can do anything to make them have what they want

  87. You think you can fool us all this time.. Tape or no tape we have learnt our lesson we know the truth

  88. This tape was made recently by Amaechi.TOLU is just a stupid liar thinking he can fool us all.

  89. This is just interesting..after the truth have been exposed,you are using lies to cover what we already know

  90. Hmmm
    Nigerians will never surprising people
    You brought up a recording last week
    About Amaechi
    Only to tell us different stories today
    Please please please
    Stop putting Nigeria into confussion
    The country is already hot

  91. Why must you lie to look good in order to impress your boss? I think there should be stiff penalties for defamation.

  92. My intention is that one day in Nigeria we will have selfless leaders who will only be concerned about the growth of the nation and not themselves.

  93. He will want to defend himself and his cause at least that is where he gets his salary from so just to look like propaganda he needs to say something

  94. All these claims and counter claims are all in the name of politics abi…such a dirty game that discredits credible people once they join politics!

  95. Tolu is just a dumb liar
    Worse still
    He lacks any true sense if reasoning when it comes to being bad at lying
    Just messed up Hus ancestors on this one

  96. God plz help us in this country… There is nothing we will not see in this country.All this selfie politicians everywhere..

  97. Na WA who do you people expect him to support? His paymaster of course. Moreover all those politicians are liars.

  98. I personally do not think he should be dragged for the info he brought…there is an iota of truth in it

  99. When audio tape or not. I believe this government is leaving in the coming election. Enough is enough.

  100. I have said this times without number that they should produce a video recording of this. They should stop turning our head.

  101. When we are suppose to face the progress of Nigeria and a hinch free elections ..they have brought something to divert attentions

  102. He must have been paid to say such. Video of recent he’s saying it was recorded in 2014. Naija

  103. One that tries to understand this game of politics will always tend to confuse his or her self at last because the game of politics isn’t something one entagoes itself with!!!
    All thses things are merely political games!

  104. Whether the audio was made in 2014 or in 2018, the damage level that the person who released the audio wanted has probably been attained. We don’t cry over spilled milk, we mop it…

  105. Oga that’s ameachi’s voice n he’s talking about buhari. Reno will release more videos/audios

  106. See how he exposed himself while trying to cover up for his failing government. Abeg they should all be swept away this coming election.

  107. They are all criminals, they say birds of the same feathers flocks together, that’s the reason he is supporting him

  108. Elections are not won by fake news or fake tapes or no fake tapes . Elections are not won on twitter . Elections are won based on achievements and future portfolios,

  109. Some people tries to paint others black simply because they want to take position or become a leader. If you cheat others to attain height, that person doesn’t last in that position. All these are politics. They want to tell me that they can’t identify who the audio was directed to.

  110. Those who are talking should product evidence to disclaim Tolu’s claim. I don’t believe in baseless talks.

  111. He’s defending Amaechi, if it was a speech made against Jonathan it would have been on ur before now

  112. Politicians and corruption…them b like 5 and 6…when would there be better leaders in this country…hw can he just be defending amaechi

  113. Everything in this country is politics, at times is the truth at times is a lot of lies who knows what the truth is

  114. Lie lie leaders.
    Accept the fact that you’re wrong and you also lied to yourself and your Nation.
