Amaechi offsets medical bills of victims of electoral violence


Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, the minister of Transportation, on Thursday, visited a hospital where some victims of the Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections’ violence were being treated.

Amaechi worried that youths could still allow themselves to be used by desperate politicians to cause violence during elections.

He called on the Management of the hospital to give the best medical attention to the patients so as to ensure their quick recovery.

According to him, “The party,(APC) will pay the medical bills but let the patients get the best of medical attention they deserve”, he said.

Recall that scores of members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) were gruesomely attacked and some killed by suspected thugs during the Presidential and National Assembly elections in the State.

In a similar development, the former Governor has also expressed sadness on the demise of some APC members at the stampede which occurred during the party’s Presidential Campaign Rally at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.

Speaking in an emotion laden voice when he paid a condolence visit to the family of one of the deceased Mr. Bestman Kalagbor, Amaechi urged the bereaved family to take solace in God.

He also said that the Party would assist the bereaved family in times of need even as efforts would be made to arrest orchestrators of the stampede.

He said, “We’ll participate during the burial and we will assist the family. Please let us know the details of the burial arrangement so we can pay our last respect to him and we will also fish out all those who caused the stampede at the Stadium”, he said.
