Amaechi Says Okonjo-Iweala begged him not to say Nigeria was broke

DOUBLE HIAN!!!!


The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has said a former Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, pleaded with him not to tell Nigerians that the country was broke.





Amaechi, who said the country went into recession under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, added that the previous administration covered up with the excuse that the country was cash-strapped.

According to the report, Amaechi alleged that Okonjo-Iweala, begged him to stop saying Nigeria was broke in order not to drive away investors from the country.

Amaechi, who was the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum at the time, explained that the economy went into a recession due to excessive borrowing.
He said, “People just pick up words without knowing what they mean. Even under Goodluck (Jonathan) we went into recession.

“I am one of those who participated in the budget. We looked at what happened in the past and we discovered that actually if recession means three times (three quarters of negative economic growth), we have done more than the three times before we came in.

“The difference is that while our government is transparent and open, we are able to admit that, the Federal Government was saying even to me as chairman of governor’s forum, ‘Amaechi, don’t say that again’.

“If you remember as governor, I said we were broke. The minister of finance came to my office in Abuja and pleaded with me that I shouldn’t say it again. That if I said it, it would affect Nigeria in terms of investment; that investors will run away. That I shouldn’t say we are broke. I should say we are cash-strapped. That was what Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala told me.

“So, I knew as chairman of Nigeria Governors’ forum, that we had gone into recession under Goodluck. I knew as chairman of governor’s forum. And when I open my mouth to say it, that we are broke, she spoke to me not to say it.”

If at all its true, then she is a wise woman, considering the reason she gave. You cannot tell your daughters suitor that she's a liar, a drug addict and a criminal and expect the marriage to continue.
Stella this your boo is becoming a talkative.

Nigerians r already tired of this change ..

. The mistake they made was not thinking about the kindna charge that the change carried.

TM David-West said...

What is astonishing is that there are Nigerians who believe the economy problems we have today just materialized "out-of-the-blue" under this Buhari dispensation. It is astonishing that we manage to believe such things. What is true is that the fruit we are reaping today came from seeds planted way before.

Na solution I dey find... no be talk-talk.

seeking unnecessary attention, post office party ( APC )

sylvia said...

this just shows amaechi is a man that cannot keep secrets. U cannot tell him things in confidence because the way his mouth has being running like tap without control in this administration; na wah

Anyway, if Nigeria was broke in GEJ's regime then its safe to announce that Nigeria is now penniless and in abject poverty in this regime thanks to Amaechi's party's bloated budgets, incessant travels etc

This same guy that led to the depletion of the ECA has no moral justification to say anything about us being broke.
He claimed he can save for his state and theres no need 2 have a general purse.

Ehlarh said...

Amaechi please just take a sit here \____

IJAY said...

But why is Amaechi and bubu like going backward

Mao Akuh said...

Is Amaechi trying to blame Mrs Ng or what?
Using 'cash trapped' is appropriate than broke.
Mad dog that shakes his tail anyhow.

Starjoy said...

Kassandra Ugo said...

Oga Amaechi, i started believing that the colour of the sky is"pink" the day you told Rivers people that you have never received a bribe before.

Jasmine said...

I just weak!!! Give us the corruption back and we can continue living well abeg

Mao Akuh said...

Onukwube

blaze said...

mr talker.

sisi eko said...

Abegy they should spare us the semantics jor.

Same way they are arguing whether "padding" of the budget was the right word to use, or adjustment/input.

The point is, was there a misappropriation in the budget, or are we in recession, simple.

sisi eko said...

Hmmmmmmm

But does this make sense? She spoke to you not to say it and you agreed? For your mind now, you love Nigerians abi? Yet you 'saw' danger coming and you were 'bribed' with 'Abeg' to keep quiet you agreed. So this betrayal didn't start today. Innocent Nigerians were your first victims before GEJ.

Amaechi that disturbed Ngozi to share excess crude oil money? You must be a very stupid man. That is the difference btw a trained economist and the babyface Kemi that cannot differentiate head from tail. Dnt worry, Niger Delta will never forget you as th e traitor and our children shall tell your children in future. A good name is better than silver and gold and ministerial post.

Helen John said...

Amaechi is demented and the evil spirits in that his stomach are beginning to rumble.
