Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has said that he would address insecurity head-on if he is elected president come 2023.
Amaechi spoke on Thursday, May 19, during a meeting with All Progressives Congress (APC) delegates in Niger state, where he assured that his administration will bring insecurity across the country to an end.
The former Rivers State governor said he has good experience in fighting insecurity and recounted some occasions he curbed insecurity during his time as governor.
While addressing Niger residents, Amaechi said; ”I know what you’re suffering, I was governor of Rivers State when they were kidnapping two months old children, and I never slept until everybody slept.
“General Buratai is not here today, he would have told you the story. Buratai, myself the former Inspector General of Police (Suleiman Abba) asked them, we used to chase criminals in the bush.”
The minister stressed that he is more qualified than other presidential aspirants in terms of experience as he has successfully handled various offices in Nigeria.
