A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chukwuemeka Eze, has tagged the attack on the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, in Spain, a violent violation of everything good about Nigeria’s march to development.
Amaechi who was in Madrid, Spain for an event on climate change, had revealed on Friday that some “misguided Nigerians” tried to physically assault him. He explained that Spanish policemen succeeded in stopping his attackers before they could hurt him.
Reacting, Eze said the attack was perpetrated by some people who were keen on smearing the image of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
He called on all Nigerians of goodwill to support calls for perpetrators of the act to be brought to justice.
In a statement on Sunday, the former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), said the attackers lacked “proper information and understanding” of the current government “in the areas of infrastructure, job creation, strengthening bilateral ties among others”.
Eze further criticized “children of anger celebrating the attack”.
“Their evil thoughts and wishes will never come to pass so far God is still on His throne,” he added.
