Amaechi made this uncharitable comment about the 8th national assembly on Monday in Ilorin during a North Central town hall meeting for the people of Kogi, Niger and Kwara States organised by the Federal Government.

The minister, who attended the meeting alongside his Information and Culture counterpart, Alh. Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Health, Professor Issac Adewole, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed Water, Sulyman Adamu; Mining and Steel (State), Abubakar Bwauari, and Trade and Investment, Ayishat Abubakar, explained that the failure of the National Assembly to approve the Buhari led-government’s borrowing plan from China was responsible for the government’s inability to improve the economy and carry out its programmes.

He urged the people of the three states to pressurise their representatives in Senates and House of Representatives into approving the loan.

His word, “Go and talk to your people in the National Assembly. They are the ones holding the Federal Government back from improving on the infrastructure that would provide mass employment for the people by stopping the President’s borrowing plan from China. They are the ones frustrating our efforts.”
