Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.
AS NINJA GETS TURBANNED
Amaechi, fondly called Ninja by his close associates, has come a long way on his political journey. He has fought many battles, some of which are still ongoing. But he has remained consistent as a proper human being in spite of his imperfections, like the rest of us.
Our position on Ninja through the years reflected not only our genuine and justified angst but also our underlying vested interests and relative biases.
We can call Amaechi many things and anything. It is fine. It cost us nothing to do that. What we however cannot deny is his humane disposition, his knack for excellence, his passionate public service drive and his genuine love for people OVER AND ABOVE MONEY. It is true.
Politics is about blue and red lines like Chelsea and Arsenal. The relationships between them are designed to be oppositional at the basest level, to score the point. It does not translate to generational bile. It’s a fair game in which losers and winners do emerge but love should never be lost.
In his shoes and faced with his peculiar challenge, many of us will do similar if not more things. I didn’t use the word worse. I said more.
As he gets turbanned as the #DanAmanarDaura, it cannot be anything but honour well deserved. The man has come a long way with his excellent public service records. This is the same dutiful Amaechi of PAMO Clinics. What God cannot do does not truly exist. Who God cannot bless will never be born.
I celebrate him.
