#INSIDENIGERIA Niger Delta People Cannot Intimidate Nigeria – Amaechi
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Monday, berated the recent activities in the Niger Delta region, adding that the people from the region cannot intimidate the entire country by their persistent wrong actions.
Mr. Amaechi who said this at a town hall meeting organised by the Minister of Information and Culture in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, noted that the region is part of the country.
The Minister furthered that the region cannot continue to do the same thing and expect a different result.
According to him, “It is part of a nation called Nigeria. You cannot continue to shoot against yourselves and think you will survive.
“You cannot continue to do the things you are doing and expect a different result. You cannot intimidate Nigerians. Don’t forget I was governor; I was never intimidated in Rivers state.
“So if we are fighting a cause, can we now sit down and know what that cause is, who will be the beneficiary, what we did when we had the opportunity to make decisions? Now you are saying, ‘Ask them.’’ He added.
