TRENDING: Lagos Is A Glorified Village, Says Amaechi in New Audio Leak

CORRECTION REMOVES REFERENCE TO POPULATION - Rivers state governor, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, speaks to foreign journalist in Lagos, Nigeria, Monday Sept. 2, 2013. The governor says that a new splinter group he formed within the ruling party along with six other governors and a former presidential candidate are trying to pressure the party to do more about poverty, crime and education. The move is the first major internal challenge to President Goodluck Jonathan since he was elected in 2011. Gov. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi said Monday that they intend to transform the ruling People’s Democratic Party from a party that presents a candidate for elections to a party with better ideology.

In a new Amaechi audio leak on Monday, the director-general of President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign organisation, has said Lagos is a glorified village.

The transportation minister said there is insufficient water and roads in Lagos while lamenting the spate of traffic jams in the state.

The audio tape was released by Phrank Shaibu, an aide of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Shaibu had on Sunday released an audio where Amaechi said the only way Nigeria can change is for everybody to be killed.

The minister made the comments during a conversation with some journalists.

He said:

“I live in Abuja, tell me where else we have infrastructure. Lagos is a glorified village. The only difference between Lagos and other cities is the fact that business is in Lagos, everybody is there doing business, so you can at least have food,” he said in the new audio clip.

“If not tell me what else you have in Lagos? 1,000 plus megawatts. That’s all. That’s what you have. What else do you have? No water, there are no roads. The reason why you meet traffic jams in Lagos is because there are no roads.”
