Lagos is a glorified village, no roads… no water, says Amaechi

Rotimi Amaechi, director-general of President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign organisation, has described Lagos as a glorified village in an audio clip leaked on Monday.

The transportation minister said there is insufficient water and roads in Lagos while lamenting the spate of traffic jams in the state.

The audio tape was released by Phrank Shaibu, an aide of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Shaibu had on Sunday released an audio where Amaechi said the only way Nigeria can change is for everybody to be killed.
The minister made the comments during a conversation with some journalists.

The Minister’s purported rants subtly indicts the All Progressives Congress (APC) which has controlled Lagos for 20 years through AD, AC, and ACN; the Co-chair of President Buhari’s Campaign Council, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; fellow cabinet minister, Babatunde Fashola; both of who governed the state for 16 years combined.

Amaechi “I live in Abuja, tell me where else we have infrastructure. Lagos is a glorified village. The only difference between Lagos and other cities is the fact that business is in Lagos, everybody is there doing business, so you can at least have food,” he said in the New audio clip.

“If not, tell me what else you have in Lagos? 1,000 plus megawatts. That’s all. That’s what you have. What else do you have? No water, there are no roads. The reason why you meet traffic jams in Lagos is because there are no roads.”
