A former Niger Delta militant, Asari Dokubo, has described Minister of Transportation and 2023 presidential hopeful, Rotimi Amaechi, as “the worst of the worst”.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that criticising the All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart, Dokubo said Amaechi should have resigned his position in the aftermath of the March 28 train attack by terrorists in Kaduna State.
“Amaechi is one of the worst of the worst. He is so shameful. That Amaechi is still in this government, is very shameful,” Dokubo said in a recent Facebook Live monitored by this newspaper.
“Why would an Amaechi have the effontry to say he wants to be president of Nigeria? In any same clime, Amaechi would have resigned from government. But he is there. The other day, I saw him using government property to campaign, with Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) vehicle.
“Amaechi is managing the greatest debt burden in Africa. That debt burden is on us. It is depleting our foreign exchange. And he told us the trains are light rail, but the train stopped on the way, they are using diesel. Amaechi has been lying to all of us.
“Above all, Abuja-Kaduna train was attacked. As we are talking, over 100 people are missing. Instead of the minister to take responsibility and resign from this government, he was saying he was going to propose a surveillance system.”
