2023 presidential hopeful, Rotimi Amaechi has explained how bombs and explosives would be used on terrorists under his government if elected as Nigeria’s next president.
Naija News reports that the former Minister of Transportation was in Katsina State on Monday to woo delegates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and stakeholders ahead of the party’s presidential primary election.
Stating his manifestos during the visit, Amaechi refers to his past glory while he was a sitting Governor of Rivers State.
He recalled how he fought terrorists and criminal elements in a few months.
Assuring Nigerians of total security, Amaechi said his government will throw bombs on terrorists daily until they disappear into thin air.
Amaechi said: “If you know Rivers State before I became the Governor, you will know there were serious cases of kidnappings and killings in the State that made oil companies move away, but in 6 months, I restored security.
“General Buratai (former Chief of Army Staff) was then a Brigade Commander, for six months I did not sleep. So I said, they too will not sleep. Until they left Rivers people to sleep, then me too, I started sleeping.
“That’s why anywhere I go for consultations with delegates, I go with Gen. Buratai and former Inspector General of Police, Abba Suleiman, who was the Commissioner of Police in Rivers State at the time and the former Chief of Air Staff, Sadique Abubakar who was Air Force commander in Rivers then. We were bombing them every day until they ran away.”
Speaking on the current status of the Nigerian economy, Amaechi said “there is a need to move back to agriculture and move from agriculture to industrialization and manufacturing.”
In his remark, Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari described the former minister as a very hardworking and courageous person, noting that Amaechi need not blow his trumpet but should allow them to blow it for him.
Masari then went ahead to pinpoint the challenges bedevilling the State, primarily the issue of insecurity and the urgent need to rehabilitate displaced people as a result of banditry.
He called on aspirants to have that at the back of their minds whenever they come to the State to seek the support of its people, Naija News reports.
