The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Monday said Niger Delta people cannot intimidate the entire country by their persistent wrong actions, stressing that the region is part of the country.
Amaechi said this at a town hall meeting organised by the Minister of Information and Culture in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
According to the Minister, the region cannot continue to do the same thing and expect a different result.
He said, “It is part of a nation called Nigeria. You cannot continue to shoot against yourselves and think you will survive.
“You cannot continue to do the things you are doing and expect a different result. You cannot intimidate Nigerians. Don’t forget I was governor; I was never intimidated in Rivers state.
“So if we are fighting a cause, can we now sit down and know what that cause is, who will be the beneficiary, what we did when we had the opportunity to make decisions? Now you are saying, ‘Ask them.’’
