As Nigerians continue to lament hunger in the land, the minister of transportation and director general of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amaechi, has told Nigerians that he is also hungry.
The minister, who said this in Bauchi on Saturday, January 12, at the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential rally, blamed the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the hunger, Punch reports.
Amaechi had accused the PDP of stealing money from the nation’s treasury while the latter was in power.
Amaechi, who called on Nigerians to ask the opposition party to return the stolen money, also said the PDP was broke and hungry.
Amaechi said: “I was speaking to my friend from the other divide and he said you are hungry, I said ‘yes, if they did not steal the money they stole, you would have had enough food.’
“The money they stole is what is making me hungry. Tell them to bring the money. The PDP stole $2bn to prosecute 2015 elections but we still defeated them. They are broke, they are hungry and they want to come back to steal.
“The PDP members know that they are broke and because of that, they are looking for cheap source of funds.
“When they say there is no food, they want to steal money and they cannot do that because the President has said that public money is not for any individual.”
According to the national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, President Muhammadu Buhari knows how to catch thieves “and that is why the thieves have all gone to the PDP but even if they go to the PDP, they must be arrested”.
