Injured minister Amaechi now walks with crutches


Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi has injured himself and now walks with the help of cruches.

In photos making round on social media, the minister was seen walking with the aid of crutches during the commissioning of an orphanage home and Arabic School in Kaita Local Government Area of Katsina State, this weekend.

Though the circumstances that led to the fracture remained sketchy, Amaechi’s close associate and chieftain of the APC, Chukwuemeka Eze confirmed the minister was injured.
Eze said he was prompted by public concern to engage the former Rivers State Governor, who said he had a hairline fracture but assured he was getting better.

He quoted Amaechi as saying: “I had a hairline fracture on 31st December, 2020 but I have been working with it all these weeks before the public pictures showing me with crutches. Nobody should express any fear as my doctors are on top of it”.

Eze said Amaechi by walking and working in pains and crutches demonstrated his patriotic zeal and commitment in contributing towards rebuilding the country.

He appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to direct Amaechi to rest a little while and allow for a quick recovery from the painful fracture.
Eze said Amaechi with his level of patriotism was ready to risk his life in the service of the nation.

While asking Nigerians to continue to remember the Minister in their prayers, Eze condemned persons celebrating Amaechi’s condition, describing them as satanic.

A hairline fracture, according to doctors, is a tiny crack in a bone caused by repetitive stress or force often from overuse and mostly caused by repeatedly jumping up and down or running long distances.
