Amaechi was reacted to reports that Nigerian politicians are afraid to travel abroad following threats of assault by IPOB members.
While speaking to LEGIT TV, on if he’s afraid of traveling abroad so as not to be attacked by IPOB members like they did to the former deputy senate president, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, in Germany, Amaechi revealed that he would soon be traveling to Geneva and that he’s not scared of being attacked. He said:
“What do you mean by that? Scared of who? I’m going to Geneva, let them come. You know there is something called self-defence? Abegi!”
“I will go to America or a place I have a function to attend to. The solution is not in attacking the politicians”.
On the solution to Nigeria’s problem which he believes should be followed instead of attacking politicians, Amaechi stated that the Nigerian economy has to be changed from consumption to production economy.
”Nigeria economy is a consumption economy. We have to change it from a consumption economy to a productive economy”.
