Amaechi stated this while delivering a lecture to participants of the National Defence College Course 29 on Friday in Abuja.
He recalled how he was able to tackle unrest and chaos among the people during his time as Governor of Rivers State by addressing deficits in infrastructure development.
“To create jobs, we had to construct roads and other infrastructure projects. This process saw a lot of people being engaged, and insecurity dropped drastically,” he said.
“We’ve done a lot in infrastructure development and employment. The massive infrastructural development in the Railway sector has employed so many Nigerians.”
“The Army is not supposed to give internal security, but the Police are overwhelmed by the crime rate. Hence the Army has consistently been rescuing Nigerians. Economic growth reduces crime, and when there’s no crime, the Military and Police can rest.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Senator Gabriel Suswam has proposed that all Nigerian political leaders should spend two days in prisons to appreciate its challenges.
