- The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has revealed who he fears the most
- Amaechi said that he can be as blunt and honest as a little child
- The minister said that he always called on God for his consent on whatever he did while in politics
The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has described himself as someone who has great fear for God in all his dealings.
Amaechi made this remark in his speech at the 8th matriculation ceremony of Gregory University Uturu, Abia state, which was aired live on NTA on Saturday, February 15.
The minister said that while he was in politics, he never went for any election without hearing first from God.
He said: "I don't go for any election without going on my knees to ask God, 'What is your position'. I am always afraid to know that I'm without God."
Moreover, Amaechi said that he is transparent and straightforward in whatever he finds himself doing.
The former Rivers state governor added that he is childishly honest in the sense that he can be as blunt as possible without even recognising that he is hurting someone else by saying the truth as it is.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Amaechi had dismissed claims that he was attacked by some Nigerians in Madrid, Spain while attending a UN conference on climate change.
The minister in a statement on Saturday, December 7, said members of a group, which has been proscribed in Nigeria lied about the attacking him.
Amaechi noted that he was not beaten, physically assaulted or suffer any bodily harm from the IPOB members. He said that the prompt intervention of the Spanish police stopped the attackers from carrying out their plan.
“As they charged towards and at the minister during the attack, it was apparent that their plan was to “beat” (quoting Emma Powerful) him, hurt him, cause bodily harm or even do worse!
"But their violent evil plot failed woefully due to the dexterity of Amaechi to resist them, protect and defend himself, and the prompt intervention of the Spanish police who repelled the motley crowd of misguided attackers," the minister said.
He said even the video circulated online by the group confirmed that he was not attacked as the attackers were heard saying they didn't get him.
The minister thanked the Spanish police for rescuing him from his attackers. He also thanked Nigerians for the outpour of love, support, and prayers.
