Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has stated that he’s not scared of travelling abroad due to threats that Nigerian politicians have been marked for attacks when they travel out of the country.
Recall that the former deputy senate president, senator Ike Ekweremadu, was attacked by some IPOB members in Germany few weeks ago. This has heightened cautiousness among politicians concerning their safety abroad.
In an interview with Legit.ng, Amaechi revealed that self-defence is enough to keep himself protected when he goes abroad.
”What do you mean by that? Scared of who? I’m going to Geneva, let them come. You know there is something called self-defence? Abegi!
”I will go to America or an place I have function to attend to. The solution is not in attacking the politicians”.
Speaking on the solution to Nigeria’s problem which he believes should be followed instead of attacking politicians, Amaechi stated that the Nigerian economy has to be changed from consumption to production economy.
”Nigeria economy is a consumption economy. We have to change it from a consumption economy to a productive economy”.
