Nigeria’s minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi has urged supporters of the All Progressives Congress to fight back against intimidation ahead of the Rivers state legislative rerun elections on Saturday.
He addressed a crowd of supporters in Port Harcourt and referred to the rerun as ‘the election of our lives’.
“I used to tell you” please don’t fight”. But I think we will bend it a bit” Amaechi said
“Don’t kill anybody but don’t be killed. My friend in the army told me if bullet is fired, the person that hears the sound is not the one that dies.
“If you allow them to shoot you, you will die. It’s not only them that have rights to life.”
