Aviation Minister, Sirika speaks on near-fight incident with Amaechi

Aviation Minister, Sirika speaks on near-fight incident with Amaechi

The Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika has broken his silence on alleged quarrel with his colleague, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

Reports emerged that the ministers almost engaged in physical combat which led to the removal of the Sirika’s portrait on walls at the airport and buildings of agencies under aviation sector.

Speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Thursday, Sirika said: “The social media said that I and the Minister are fighting but that is not true. The fact that there are no pictures of me at airports, offices and agencies under aviation is based on my personal choice.

“I believe that my photo will not give Nigerians anything, rather, it is my actions that will. I don’t need my pictures on walls, they were there before but I ordered that they be removed. Photo will not give us good airports and runways, rather good governance and that is my challenge and target.

“Having pictures everywhere as far as I am concerned is very trivial, unnecessary and it is not my style”, he said.

On removal of his pictures, Sirika responded: “My pictures should be put on walls when I have worked. Having my pictures on walls is not the major reason why I was appointed to serve, my dream is to change the industry for better and when that is done, then my pictures can be put everywhere”.
