“Nigeria’s Wealth Is In The Pockets Of An Infulential Few” – Former Minister Amaechi Reveals

The former minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has stated that Nigeria is a country without consequences, as citizens and voters have failed to hold politicians and leaders accountable for their actions and policies.

Amaechi, who is also the former governor of River State, stated this during a panel session at the fifth edition of The Nigeria Symposium For Young and Emerging Leaders held in Lagos today.


Speaking on ineffective policies and extreme poverty, Amaechi explained the country’s wealth has been in the pocket of an influential few. He called for politicians to invest in infrastructure in order to create jobs and reduce crime.

“I know politicians who have suddenly become billionaires, and this is the money that should have been used to build roads and provide amenities that could have been used to improve the lives of citizens. Our politicians have to be clear on how they intend to lift people out of poverty,” he said.
