Any Government that watches its people killed daily has failed – Amaechi

Former Governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi has said that any government that watches its people die on a daily basis has failed.

Amaechi, who is the current Minister of transport, chided Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike, saying that his government has failed in providing good leadership for the state.

Amaechi disclosed that said that under Wike’s watch, killings and massacre of the people occurred every day under Wike’s watch.

Speaking at a rally during the weekend 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.”

  • Tell your master and lord mhb that your apc government indeed have failed. They have the police, army and all forces but still many are been killed everyday. Thank GOD this comment is coming from you an executive member of this govt. apc have really really fail Nigerians that voted them into power. It is therefore a stupid and foolish of any reasonable person to join apc.

  • Rotimi Amaechi thank God you know that.Go and tell your president PMB that Nigerians has been slaughtered everyday.God is watching.

  • That statement from Rotimi Amaechi aptly described the failed APC government of Buhari and passes as an indictment on this party APC and their Buhari government.
