THE Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi has reacted to reports that Nigerian politicians are afraid to travel abroad following threats of assault by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Recall that the former deputy senate president, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, was attacked by some IPOB members in Germany a few weeks ago. This has heightened cautiousness among politicians concerning their safety abroad.
According to him, Amaechi divulged that he is not afraid and would ‘defend’ himself if attacked.
While speaking on Tuesday with newsmen, he said, “What do you mean by that? Scared of who? I’m going to Geneva, let them come. You know there is something called self-defence? Abegi!”
“I will go to America or a place I have a function to attend to. The solution is not in attacking the politicians”.
Speaking on the solution to Nigeria’s problem which he believes should be followed instead of attacking politicians, Amaechi stated that the Nigerian economy has to be changed from consumption to production economy.
”Nigeria economy is a consumption economy. We have to change it from a consumption economy to a productive economy”.
