Presidential Aspirant, Rotimi Amaechi on Sunday 15th, May 2022 paid a courtsey visit to Bayelsa APC Members.
His visit to state was to consult with the Bayelsa APC Members on the upcoming APC Presidential Primaries.
He also visited the Bayelsa State Traditional Rulers Council in Yenagoa.
Addressing the Traditional Rulers, Amaechi said, “For me the solution to crime is to give people responsibility and make them have a source of revenue. Once people have a source of income, crime will reduce. So, the solution to crime is to create jobs and create source of revenue because if you don’t create that source of revenue for them, they would create for themselves, if you don’t grow an economy that accomodates the people, that is inclusive and accommodates everybody, somebody who isn’t part of that economy will create one for himself.”
“I assure you that if given the opportunity to serve our country, there shall be changes and there will be progress. I assure you that you’ll be of special interest to the Federal Government,” Amaechi said.
In his remark, Chairman, Bayelsa State Council of Traditional Rulers, HRM King Bubaraye Dakolo Agada the 10th said, “We are delighted to have you. You are an aspirant who has come to do the needful and become the candidate of APC and the President of Nigeria. You are our son, I have never seen a resume or profile of your type. Two times Speaker, two times Governor and two times Minister, we must give you the needed support.
Amaechi was joined to Bayelsa state by Former chief Of Army Staff General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, Senator Ali Ndume of Bornu State and others
