Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has revealed that he was forced to join politics due to unemployment.
The former Governor of Rivers State made this disclosure during a recent interview with PUNCH.
Amaechi noted that though he was exposed to politics right from his young age, he didn’t nurse the idea of building a career in politics.
“My father was a politician. He ran for councillorship during his time. However, I didn’t join politics because I wanted to be a leader or because I wanted to solve Nigeria’s problems. I joined because of unemployment. I also believe there is a part that grace played in it.”
The Minister revealed during the interview that had he not been involved in politics, he would have been a broadcaster or a lawyer.
