Rotimi Amaechi, previous Governor of Rivers State and immediate former Minister of Transportation, has stated poverty alleviation at all levels of government is the panacea to lingering insecurity in the country.
Amaechi, a ministerial candidate spoke on Saturday in Abuja, following his screening at the Senate.
He affirmed that only efficient and feasible economy that creates jobs for the people will prevail over the wave of insecurity in the country.
He applauded the APC-led federal government for developing templates focused on revamping the economy.
“This government knows the problems of the country which they inherited.
