The Minister Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, on Friday, said was wrong for Nigerians to blame the current in the country on the All Progressives -led government.

The former Governor Rivers insisted that was a misnomer for anybody to claim that banditry was caused by the current regime led by the President, Major Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), when in reality, “the past leaders should be held responsible for mismanaging the resources the country”.

Amaechi spoke in Jos on Friday while commissioning the Central Coordinating Office complex of the Nigerian Shippers Council and visual presentation of the proposed Maritime Resource Centre in Plateau .

Exonerating the APC regime from the current challenges facing Nigeria, Amaechi said, “The earlier Nigerians began to take who can perform, the better. The reason we are doing this is so that we can reduce banditry and because if you don’t create , you will reduce crime.

“The reason there is crime is because the rich who had run the economy of Nigeria for years mismanaged . don’t know Nigerians like to think that we are the first to be in government.
