Newly appointed Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi yesterday declared his commitment to running a corruption-free ministry.
Amaechi reportedly made the following statements while he met with the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transport, Alhaji Sabiu Zakari, directors and other staff:
“I am not as bad as people from the outside say I am. I only engage based on principles. I neither take nor give bribes. If you want to relate with me, don’t give me money. I will also not give you money. I don’t want to go to jail so I won’t steal. But I won’t spare thieves.”
