The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has said there is nothing wrong with calls for the restructuring of the country, but insists getting rid of hunger and poverty is more critical to the federal government.

Amaechi stated this on Sunday, while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

“If to you what is important is restructuring, I don’t see anything wrong with restructuring. But I’m saying it is not the most critical problem we have.

“The most critical problem we have is hunger and poverty, which is breeding insecurity,” he said.

Amaechi who was Rivers State governor between 2007 and 2015, also said creating jobs for the people will keep them away from crime.

“If you’re able to create employment, you create security.

“When you do not create a legitimate economy, the people will create for themselves an illegitimate economy and be able to feed themselves,” he added.
