Vick’s high unemployment rate is the cause of instability
Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi blamed the unsafe situation in Rivers State for high unemployment.
Amayachi said most of the institutions created to create jobs in the state have ceased to function under the current administration.
The former state governor spoke during the defections of two former administration commissioners led by Governor Nies Vicke and other members of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The event took place on Sunday in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
According to Amayachi, “Rivers State is in complete danger. A state where property is collected and wherever someone builds and no one talks.
“When I was the governor, God knows, I tried very hard. I didn’t just build roads, I built schools. I wasn’t just building roads, I was building electricity. I have built farms. I created a job. Rivers State was not among the communities with the highest unemployment rates in Nigeria.
“The reason for the high crime rate in Rivers State is the very high unemployment rate. That’s why we had Songhai Farm. Today, Songhai Farm no longer exists. That’s why we had a banana farm that they stopped in Khan (Ogoniland).
“That’s why we had fish farms and that’s why we built a farm in Eche. We did all this to create jobs for young people. So we hired 13,200 teachers and sent our children to study abroad. ”
Recently, the problem of security in the state has become aggravated.
In some parts of Rivers State, there was some insecurity associated with the indigenous peoples of Biafra, IPOB.
Just days ago, more than 15 sectarian suspects were killed in the Akpabuyo / Bakassi local government areas of the state.
The incident took place as part of a resumed cult operation.
DAILY POST found residents in the affected areas leaving their villages, communities and local governments, while economic and social structures were destroyed.
Three alleged cult groups are reportedly involved in the incident: Skyro, Mafiance and Black Scorpion.
It became known that the actions of cult groups are bloody.
