Some Nigerians will blame Buhari if they can’t get pregnant

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi said Nigerians blame President Muhammadu Buhari for all the challenges witnessed in the country including the ones that didn’t concern him.

Amaechi stated this on a Channels Television’s program titled, ‘Hard Copy’

He said: “The point is we all blame the government. Like the President would say, if tomorrow you are unable to get pregnant, you will blame Buhari.”

Amaechi added that the All Progressives Congress promised to deliver “change” to Nigeria in 2015 because they didn’t know the magnitude of the rot left behind by Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.

The former Chairman of the Governor’s Forum said the Buhari-led administration could not be perfect but has changed a lot.


He argued that the current administration had diversified the economy and halted the importation of rice.

Amaechi also argued that insecurity could not be tackled without curbing poverty first.

The minister said, “When you talk about bandits and all these people that kill. It is a question about poverty. And that poverty didn’t start in this regime. Don’t forget that oil was sold at $110, $114, $115 per barrel. When this government came into power, oil fell to $28 per barrel and since then it has not gone above $80 per barrel.

“As former chairman of the governors’ forum, I was told by the security in a meeting chaired by the former President including the former minister of finance that at every point in time, the government must leave money behind in case Nigeria goes to war that would last for six months.

“By the time we came, they didn’t leave money behind that could last us for three weeks. And I was speaking at that time as the chairman of the governors’ forum.”
