LAGOS- Former transport minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has accused Nigerians of voting for corrupt politicians especially thieves and certificate forgers.
Amaechi disclosed this while speaking at a recent event in Lagos.
The former minister noted that Nigerians know the politicians with history of corruption but choose to support them regardless of their crimes.
“What is new to say, Nigerians don’t react to anything. Has any politician told you he is not a thief? Which politician told you he went to university, which politician told you she served in NYSC, and which politician told you he has his certificate? Nigerians know and still vote for them.”
The minister had accused President Bola Tinubu’s adviser and former Nigeria Ports Authority boss, Hadiza Bala Usman, of telling unquantifiable lies against him in her book.
Recall that Amaechi lost to Tinubu during the 2023 APC presidential primary election.
