“The Only Way Nigeria Can Change Is For Everybody To Be Killed” – Amaechi
Rotimi Amaechi, Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, has in a recent audio said the only way Nigeria can change is for everybody to be killed.
Rotimi Amaechi who is also the director-general of President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, reportedly described Nigeria as hopeless.
We reported yesterday that Amaechi was allegedly caught in audio saying ‘the President doesn’t read’.
According to a new audio released by Phrank Shaibu, an aide of Atiku Abubakar, Amaechi said this in a conversation with some journalists.
Though the audio could not be verified and it is unclear when the conversation took place, it has been generating reactions on social media.
“This country can never change, I swear. The only way this country can change is in a situation where everybody is killed,” Amaechi said in the audio.
“This country is going nowhere. When Magnus (Abe) was secretary to the Rivers State Government (SSG), I told him that this country is hopeless and helpless and he told me, ‘Oga, stop it’. This cannot be coming from a governor.
“But two months in Abuja, Magnus came to meet me and said, I agree with you; this country is hopeless and helpless. All they do in Abuja is to share money.
“I have already written to the governor of Katsina state and I don’t know why he has not replied to give us the land in Daura for a university in Daura. The next university would be in my village. There is a popular saying while we were growing up, that charity begins at home. Will my own begin abroad?
“The president does not listen to anybody. He doesn’t care. You can write what you want to write. Does he read? I was flying with him in the aircraft and we saw a news report where a goat seller was complaining that he couldn’t sell his goats during Sallah because of Buhari’s administration. And the president said what my business with goat sellers is?”
