The former Minister of transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi has rated himself his performance as a huge success in the first term of President Muhammadu Buhari‘s administration.

During an interview on Channels Television in Abuja, Amaechi said his re-appointment as a minister for another term is at the discretion of the President. He said:

“I have to be the President, I am not the President. The President will decide those who will come back. So its between God and the President. I dont know.

“I am not in a position to access my performance. (I consider myself) a huge success. What are the promises the President made? He promised security. At that time, the problem was Boko Haram. To a great extent, Boko Haram has been decimated,” he stated.

Amaechi explained that the LagosIbadan railway will solve the constant gridlock on the Apapa road in Lagos.

According to him, before the traffic would be addressed, the Ibadan-Kano should be handled with goods cleared first before the decongestion can take place.

“My fear is that if we don’t continue from Ibadan to Kano, then we are leaving the problem at Ibadan.

“We have applied for a loan facility from China. Once we get that, we will continue with the construction from Ibadan to Kano. And once we do that, you will see that the goods will be dissipating.

“We transport nearly about 30 million tonnes of cargo per year from that Apapa to Kano. As we are transporting it, only 200 tonnes go by rail,” he stated.
