The Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has commended the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan for rejuvenating the railway transport system in the country.
Amaechi, who has previously stated that the Muhammadu Buhari administration will not abandon projects from the previous administration, said on Saturday, that the federal government has obtained a loan to continue the rail transport project.
The minister stated this while speaking during a phone-in program on a Port Harcourt-based radio station. He noted that the rail project will create 240,000 jobs around the country.
Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi also took a shot at former president Goodluck Jonathan during the interview at a radio station station in Port Harcourt today. He said Jonathan hated the people of Rivers state so much that he was unwilling to clean up Ogoniland. "Jonathan hated Rivers people so much that ordinary $1bn to clean up Ogoni land, he refused to pay." he said.
