Rotimi Amaechi, Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, has stated that the privileged are the country’s issue.

On Tuesday, May 3, at the 2022 World Press Freedom Day festivities in Uyo, the former Rivers Governor advised Nigerians to elect the right leaders and to always hold politicians responsible.

“The country’s problem is not the poor guy in Akwa Ibom or Rivers, in the South East or the North,” he stated. We, the privileged, are you and I.”

He also spoke on the subject of restructuring.

“You are hearing restructuring because the elites’ consensus on sharing (resources) is eroding,” he explained.

“It is because there is no longer anything to share. We are bankrupt. The elites, including you, are to blame for the country’s problems.”
