Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportations, has said nothing is wrong with calls for the nation’s restructuring but insists that it is more critical for the federal government to get rid of poverty and hunger.
The minister stated this on Sunday while responding on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
“If to you what is essential is restructuring, I don’t see anything wrong with restructuring. But I’m saying it is not the most critical problem we have.
“The most critical problem we have is hunger and poverty, which is breeding insecurity,” he said.
He was Rivers State governor between 2007 and 2015, also said creating jobs for the people will keep them away from crime.
“If you’re able to create employment, you create security.
“When you do not create a legitimate economy, the people will create for themselves an illegitimate economy and be able to feed themselves,” he added.
