Nigerians Will Rather Commit Suicide Than Act – Ex Governor Rotimi Amaechi
Amaechi’s Startling Remarks on Nigerian Apathy
In a recent viral video shared on Channels TV’s platform, Rotimi Amaechi, a prominent Nigerian political figure, made some astonishing remarks about the attitude of the average Nigerian citizen. His comments shed light on what he perceives as the docility of the Nigerian populace in the face of political deceit and societal issues.
Amaechi pointed out the incredulity of the situation where politicians, despite various allegations and scandals, continue to enjoy the support and votes of the Nigerian people. He asked whether any politician had ever publicly confessed to being a thief or even admitted to fabricating their academic qualifications. Despite these glaring issues, the Nigerian electorate seems to overlook them, raising the question of why this behavior persists.
One of Amaechi’s most shocking assertions was the apparent indifference of Nigerians to their own plight. He stated that even when confronted with dire circumstances, rather than seeking solutions, many Nigerians resort to drastic measures, including suicide. While his comments may be seen as provocative, they highlight the need for a more engaged and proactive citizenry in Nigeria’s democratic process.
