Eradicating poverty will help curb insecurity - Rotimi Amaechi

Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, the immediate past Minister of Transportation has said that poverty alleviation at all levels of government is the panacea to the lingering insecurity in the country.
The former governor of Rivers State who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja over the  weekend said only a viable and productive economy that creates jobs will surmount the spate of insecurity in the country.
He commended the APC-led federal government for devising templates aimed at revamping the economy.
According to him: “This government knows the problems of the country which they inherited. That is why President Muhammadu Buhari declares war against poverty as a means to ending insecurity,’’ he said.
Amaechi who restated the need to revitalize the economy for sustainable development at all levels identified youth empowerment as vital in wealth creation for a stable and secured polity.
