The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has admitted during a Town Hall meeting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, yesterday, that the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government has been playing ‘blame game’ since it took over the country’s mantle of leadership but it’s high time it stopped.
The former Rivers State Governor said if the ‘blame game’ is not stopped now, it would continue for the next four years.
“It’s time to move forward. If we start the blame game, we would do it for four years and we wouldn’t have done anything and people don’t care about the blame game anymore.
“The reason why you voted for us is the reason why you are blaming the other people. Having voted for us, it means you heard us when we were campaigning that these people have failed and failed us.
“In fact, I was very excited when your governor made his speech; I said this is a new convert. Now I can hear your governor say a similar thing. He’s using a different word. He is saying we want development.
“If we don’t give you development, next time, don’t vote for us. What development do we want to give you from my ministry? One of my offence in the south-south was that there we have no roads; this east west road was not constructed.
“When Orubebe attacked me here in Akwa Ibom, I replied by showing them the photograph of east west road and I showed them the flyovers I constructed across east west road anywhere the rivers flow I put a flyover across and I said facts speak for them and the President called me and said Amaechi stop stop stop,” he said.
