In an interview with Channels Television today February 17, Amaechi wondered why people are delibrately working to bring down the government. He expressed hope of everything getting better when social media is regulated.

 

He said;

 

“This so-called social media, the earlier they start regulating it, the better.

“We either start regulating this or there are people who deliberately want to bring down the government, and I don’t know what they want to achieve by that, is it that the government can’t protect its own minister?”

 

Amaechi averred that there was no incident of shooting or attempted kidnap of him or anyone at the train station.

 

He added;

 

“Most of these stories we hear are not true, they had earlier on said there was an attack on passengers on the same Rigasa, I had to tell NRC to make a rejoinder because there was none.”
