The Hon. Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and former governor of Rivers State today, November 29, 2020 during Channels Television’s Sunday Politics said he does not see anything wrong with calls for the restructuring of the country but insists tackling hunger and poverty is more critical to the federal government.
“If to you what is important is restructuring, I don’t see anything wrong with restructuring but I am saying it is not the most critical problem we have.
“The most critical problem we have is that hunger and poverty are breeding insecurity.
“If you are able to create employment, you create security. If you like hire as many men as you want to hire that are policemen, you would do nothing until you put food in the hands of people.
“When you do not create a legitimate economy, the people will create for themselves an illegitimate economy and be able to feed themselves,” Amaechi said.
