Rotimi Amaechi, the former governor of Rivers State and the current Minister of Transportation, has expressed concern about the high level of crime and insecurity in the state, claiming that the state is in jeopardy.
The Minister made the remarks in Port Harcourt during the formal defection of two former Commissioners and others who served in Governor Wike’s administration from the PDP to the APC.
Unemployment, according to Amaechi, is to blame for the current state of insecurity and high levels of crime in the state.
