Mr. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, the former minister of transportation, has advised Nigerians not to leave the country in what is now known as the “japa” syndrome, emphasizing that there are plenty of chances there.
This comes as Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), the former Minister of Works and Housing, similarly stated that it was normal for individuals to leave the nation, citing the profound changes brought about by globalization and the growing use of the internet.
Responding to questions on “Life After Office,” Amaechi stated that he had always discouraged people from leaving Nigeria because there are so many prospects there.
“I have always discouraged those who want to leave the country. You can always get 9a.m. to 5p.m. jobs when you leave the country but you can never get the kind of opportunity you get in Nigeria. You can just wake up and you can become a governor or a minister in Nigeria,” Amaechi explained.
Speaking on the quality of leadership in the country, Amaechi said: “Nigerians get what they want, what they deserve. You don’t complain after. You don’t. Nigerians at all times have had opportunities to vote. So, whatever you voted for is what you deserved. But, let’s not go into politics.”
On the legacies he left behind in the past 25 years of being in politics, Amaechi cited the construction of the Lekki Deep Sea Port, and the Lagos-Ibadan and Abuja/Kaduna railway lines, among others.
“Another thing that is interesting to me is the railway and I’m happy that the Lagos-Ibadan and Abuja-Kaduna railways are still operating. These and others are legacies that I would like to watch,” he added. [CONTINUE READING HERE]
