Any Govt That Watches Its People Being Killed Everyday Has Failed – Amaechi

On June 11, 2018 8 Comments

The Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, has noted that any government that watches the killing of its people on a daily basis is irresponsible.

Amaechi said that the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has failed in providing good governance for the people of the state.

The former governor said that under Wike’s watch, killings and massacre of the people persist all over the state on a daily basis.

Amaechi, the leader of the APC in Rivers, said this at the weekend at a rally where he received hundreds of supporters of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, into the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Bera, headquarters of Gokana Local Government Area of the state.

He said, “Every government has a responsibility to protect lives and property. The reason there is a government is because the people are alive. If a person dies there will be no government.

“Any government that watches its people killed every day is an irresponsible government. Governor Wike watches his people killed every day.

“I met a woman yesterday whose husband was killed in front of her with her son watching. It could have been any of you. I can assure you today that this government of Wike has failed.

“When I was your governor, you slept and I kept awake. As governor, I chased away criminals to their holes. I know that the reason they are into crime was because they had no money for them.

“I knew that for you to stop a man from crime you need to provide an alternative means of livelihood. And to do that, I started building infrastructures. I built schools, hospitals and health centres.

“A lot of people were employed in each of the schools and health facilities I built.”

    Our dear brother, Amaechi you have just said the truth and nothing but the truth. we have never seen this type of killings in Benue , Taraba , Kogi , Enugu , Abia etc by the herdsmen , soldiers and the ‘people trained by Gadafi ‘ according to our intergrity President for years .Irresponsibility is a mild word to describe what is happening in Nigeria now . should i say that the federal government of which you serve as a miunister of transport is delibrately wicked and carefree about the pligth of the defenceless Nigerians who he swore under an oat to protect or is your government trying to memorise another 1804 in the whole of Nigeria ? May God save us from the hands of this type of federal government that is accussing Gadafi instead of facing and silencing the herdsmen
